Home Sweet Home!

Home Sweet Home! We came home Monday afternoon and are getting settled. It is SO SO nice to be home. I didn't realize how ready I was to leave the hospital until it hit me that I hadn't left my hospital room since I walked in Friday night. Talk about cabin fever. I'd like to say it's nice to be sleeping in my own bed, but unfortunately not a lot of sleep is happening at this point. At least at night anyway. She is bright eyed and bushy tailed when it comes my bedtime it seems. But she is so stinking cute that I don't mind for now. We're working on fixing that though!

Manny continues to be pretty standoffish to me. He looks at me like he's a little confused and hurt, and it just breaks my heart. I know it will get better - it already is - just slowly. He adores Maeva though and always talks about the "bebe". Here is a video where he kept asking to hold her, and he was so sweet with her. This melts my heart! He is so sensitive right now and I know it's hard for him, but he will be fine. Yesterday he got mad when I told him not to hit the wall with his golf club (I'm no fun) and he ran to his bedroom and LOCKED HIMSELF IN. We didn't know he could do that! Fortuntately there is a key over the door so we busted him out, though he was content staying in his room. Poor buddy.
In an attempt to send myself straight to the crazy bin, I scheduled newborn pictures yesterday morning. She did so many cute poses of Maeva and I can't wait to see them! Manny, however, was FAR less interested in posing for any kind of picture. Instead he wanted to run around growling "beee-beee" and march around her, while yelling "MARCH!" He is obsessed with marching - it is so cute! He loves this old Donald Duck cartoon where Donald is in the Army and yells march all the Manny likes to also. It is so so cute. However, it was a little much when he was marching within inches of Maeva's head. She'll be a tough cookie for sure! :)
And in case you missed it in the excitement of Maeva's birth, I am hosting a Velata Fondue party! Go here to read more. It will be open through Wednesday, May 23rd.

Happy Wednesday friends!! :)


  1. congrats she is absoultely gorgeous love the video breathtaking many blessings to you and your beautiful family

  2. Congrats on bringing your sweet baby girl home! What a wonderful blessing :)

  3. Congratulations! That video is adorable! I am due in 6 weeks and my daughter is similar age to Manny so looking forward to her doing this with her baby sister too! Praying for restful nights soon for you all xx

  4. She is just beautiful!

    What your son is going through is quite normal. We have 4 going on 5 and each child responds different. They get jealous so easy. A friend gave me the advice to include the older sibling in diapering and looking at books while you feed. Its worked wonders! They feel special helping out. It's the first month in my experience thats the hardest. One of mine also started talking and acting like a baby. Just gotta love them as they learn their new role. Congrats!!!

  5. She is so, so pretty! I'll say a prayer for Manny while he is in this adjustment period.

  6. She is adorable, so glad that you made it home. And don't worry, your son will adjust quicker than you think-before you know it, he won't even remember what life is like without her around. Just try to cherish any moment with just him while the baby is sleeping and enjoy the newborn stage the second time around as much as you can--it goes that much faster!!!

  7. So happy y'all are home and doing well! She is adorable and the video is super sweet! Manny will be a great big brother! Congrats again!

  8. So sweet. It is so hard for the older one to understand when a new baby comes home.
    Enjoy your sweet little ones!

  9. Congratulations, Sarah! Maeva is just precious. So glad you guys are home - hope you can get a little sleep soon! Thinking of you guys!

  10. Congratulations! She is beautiful! My baby girl is 3 weeks old and my son is 20 months. He had a tough time the first week, but now he is so sweet to her and wants to hug and kiss her all the time! Hang in there!

  11. Congratulations! She is precious!

  12. Such cute pics! Poor little Manny. I guess he's still too young to understand. All he knows is this little person has rocked his world!

  13. They are just precious! I love that Manny was marching around her. ha!
