Help a newbie get started with photography.

I'm purchasing my first DSLR and I'd like to take full advantage of it. I have a lot of experience with scientific imaging (I run a microscope lab) but I don't have much experience with aesthetic photography or how best to take advantage of a DSLR. I'd like your advice on books, websites, and other resources to help me get the best photos. All aspects of photography are helpful: operating the camera, composing photos, and post-processing.

Specifically, I'm getting a Nikon D3200 with the kit 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, and I will mostly be taking photos of my family (we're expecting our first kid in January). Advice on software (I'm a PC guy) for processing photos is also welcome.
