Thank you everyone. If you didn't see, I edited my original post in this thread to include the birth story and two pictures.

I am so happy to have him home now! It was so cute seeing his reaction to being at home. He kept looking around at everything with wide eyes and a confused expression. Awww, I think he is adjusted now.

DH ended up getting the whole week off from school (awesome profs) and rescheduled his exams to this week. FIL and a contractor (thank you DH for finally hiring someone!) made huge progress on the kitchen during our time in the hospital. We now have walls with paint and our cabinets are hung and nearly ready to be filled (just need doors placed on a few and a temporary counter top). Oh, yes and we have to buy a new sink but... we are so close! We are anticipating eating in our kitchen once again (with a sink and dishwasher, LOL) this coming weekend. Yipeee!!
