where the older two met the younger one


I had just settled in to my fifteen minute chair massage when I heard Matt speaking from the hospital hallway, oh mommy is getting her massage. I hadn't realized they were coming so soon but told the massage therapist to just please let them in, my little family. Dominic was in his hospital grade bassinet and in walked the older two, looking as though they had grown a foot or two over night. Letty hugged me immediately while David ran around to peek at me through the face rest on the massage chair. Matt took them over to stare at the new baby. I'm sure they had very deep thoughts during those moments.

As soon as the massage was done Letty asked if she could hold Baby Dom-men-ick. She ran to wash her hands and removed her boots and climbed up onto the bed arms all ready to go. She is a natural. David was very interested in the trucks on Dom's swaddle and then that Mickey Mouse was on tv. But other than that he didn't think there was much to see here.

Letty didn't want to leave me, which always makes a mom feel good. David was running towards the door yelling bye baby Lena! Poor Dominic. Not even a day old and already getting confused with his female cousin. We have strides to make folks. Strides.

Once we brought Dominic home there was a little unrest. Not directed towards the baby, but towards us. General unrest brought on by a few days without their parents. Possibly a cold brewing as well.  More whiney-ness. More neediness. More hugs given and time outs handed out like candy. But Dominic himself just fit right in seamlessly. Just as we hoped he would.



  1. the cutest. i can't even imagine what the two oldest chatted about in regard to the new tiny human. but i love it.

  2. ok wait? You got a massage while in the hospital? How did I not get the word on this? I'm demanding one with my next kid. =)

    And those pics of Letty and D with Dom are just too much! I think Letty is going to be a great helper for you...too cute!

  3. Second picture from the top... Letty looking at David, so mommy-like... as if she just got done explaining to him who Dom was. I cant tell you how much I love when a little girl is the first child. There is something about the Im in charge, Im the other mommy, I know exactly how to handle these kids- mentality (much like I had as the first born haha) that I just love seeing in a little girl. But im sure that is also challenging lol. "Bye Lena" hahaha.

  4. This seriously cracks me up!! David especially. Letty is so sweet. She is such a little momma already. It's so funny how different boys and girls are. You are so great to capture such sweet moments!

  5. Umm....can I just find out more about this massage? I am three kids deep with no offer of a massage, should I be moving to PA before I have this next baby?

  6. Love that second picture! Glad you all are home and getting settled as a family of 5!

  7. awww i am so glad their first visit went so preciously well!!! i love the pics!!! and ummm you get a massage in your place of birthing??!! that's amazing!!

  8. These photos are beautiful. Love that the kids were into him, and the trucks on the wrap appealing to David is adorable :)

  9. Those three are so precious! Love the pics. Letty totally looks look a natural!
