The Blues Brothers Meet Baby Girl

Here is a look at the 
FIRST PEEK 
the boys had 
of their new sister.
She is just a few hours old and 
still tired from her journey.
I can't wait to hear SweetCheeks
comments on this 
FAT BABY!

One of the wisest things I ever heard was 
my own doctor telling me to 
NOT HOLD THE NEW BABY
when you introduce the older siblings.
That way there is no immediate jealousy
that the new baby is
 TAKING MOM AWAY.
Wasn't that smart advice?

We head home from the hospital
after lunch today.
I'll be back when we get
settled in.
Thank you for all the 
wonderful comments and 
Well Wishes!

So sweet! And very good advice! We gave Elie a very special baby at the hospital when her sister arrived. Funny story, she was rocking said baby (doll) and the nurse walked in and bout had a heart attack... She thought it was the real baby!!! It did look real (still have it...it was anatomically correct too, LOL)

Susie said...

Diana, That is the cutest photo. The boys look so darn cute. I think SC may be the jealous one....giving up her youngest girl title. Then again ,she may assume a role of bigger sister to her new cousin. I know a new baby is a jot, but can be exhausting for everyone. Blessings to all, get some rest. xoxox,Susie

Priceless photo! What fun those three are going to have! And that is really wise advice form the doctor. Even husbands get envious of the time and attention mommy devotes to a new baby sometimes!

Linda said...

What great advice from your doctor! I will spread the word to my family. Linda@Wetcreek Blog

That little princess is truly lucky to have such handsome big brothers! They will be wonderful protectors! xo Nellie

Wanda said...

Diana ~ Thanks so much for stopping by... Oh my what a beautiful little girl, and those brothers....adorable. Funny last evening I was looking at a picture of our son...now 48 when he was the age of your boys, and lo and behold...he's wearing the same outfit...a little Blues Brother. Will post it when I get it from my son.

That was excellent advice from your doctor. I had some good advice years ago, "When you go to visit a new baby...if there are siblings, take then a gift too, and talk to them first".... I've done that for many years. I had two girls first and then a boy...and then 5 years later a surprise and another girl.
I tried to follow some one the other day, and it wouldn't let me either...try again OK.

Best wishes with you new little blessing and your family.

Linda said...

What a precious photo. Love the hats. Can't wait to see more of Baby Bright Eyes!

Kelly said...

That probably is good advice. I never thought of that before but it makes perfect sense! That's a sweet picture of them looking at her. That's good that she will have big brothers to protect her as she grows up.

White Lace and Promises said...

Oh how precious! I think I'll pass that along to my daughter-in-law. She said that since my Connor is a mama's baby that she thought that she would have Chad bring in Cora and put her in Connor's arms. Sweet, either way. Can't wait to get my hands on my first granddaughter. Your baby girl is beautiful!

Chatty Crone said...

THEY ARE SO CUTE! And great advice!

Sweet Tea said...

The first of many adorable photos, I'm sure.
May God bless this adorable family!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

A moment in time...so sweet, Diana!

Jettie said...

Awe, such a sweet photo, and those two brothers will make sure she is treated fairly, I'm sure, lol.

Nancy's Notes said...

I remember you giving me that advice. We followed it.... and it worked. :-) With both Grace and Brilyn when they got new little siblings. :-) And little Baby Bright Eyes looks beautiful. Those boys will love her, I'm sure.

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

That's wonderful advice for introducing a new sibling! I bet the boys will adore her. :) She's a lucky little girl!

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Terrific advice! It's always a delicate point when the siblings see the new one! I hope Mimi is recovering well. I know she'll need some help for a while. She's lucky to have you so handy! Take care and enjoy your new Granddaughter!

Vee said...

That is great advice and funny thing is, until now, I'd never heard it before. The other good advice I have heard is never to fret about providing a child with siblings for it is the best gift a parent can give. What an adorable photo...slated to become an instant family treasure. Hope that your daughter is feeling better with each passing day.

Delena said...

I love this picture of the brothers peeking at the new baby. She is a doll!
Hugs!

Missy George said...

Love the hats!!

Tessa~ Here there be musing said...

Excellent advice!

Methinks' that the hardest and most important business-at-hand, for the first week or so, is to not dote on the new baby. I mean, take care of her! But try not to "adore" her. She won't know the difference, but the siblings will. Gotta' make it as easy on them, as is humanly possible. 'Cause no matter how *great* it sounds, to adults.... All this sweet-talk about loving their new baby sister.... In sibling eyes, this baby is taking AWAY from them. Taking attention, love, attention, attention, attention... Oh yes, and love. -grin-

Which is all common sense. But.... Very hard for big people to appreciate common sense, in the fact of a new baby.

Good luck! You will be "in charge." Good luck with the interesting couple of weeks.

Lots of hugs,
Tessa~

Tessa~ Here there be musing said...

Me also thinks, this will be a good time for a lesson for Sweet Cheeks. When she remarks about the FAT baby, she could be gently instructed, that it is not kind, to say things like referring to any one as being FAT. Gently, but firmly, told! It's time she learned about how "words can hurt." And learned that smart little girls, try to not "hurt" with words.

This is the cutest picture ever!!!! Sure to be a special captured moment to be treasured for years! Its such wise advice as they meet for the first time. I will pass this along and would have liked to have used it myself.

Those hats in this photo and the last one you posted of the boys are just so darn handsome!!!! Does mom or Nana buy these hats? I loved putting hats on my son when he was that age. Thanks for sharing! <3

Donna said...

The boys look so cute admiring their baby sister! I love their cute hats! What a sweet heart she is, she sure won't lack for attention! That was wise advise from your doctor for sure! Hope you are having a great weekend, and get some much needed rest!

Emily turned into a monster child from the moment she saw me holding Abby in the hospital. Seriously, it hasn't changed 23 years later.

Errrrrr....

♥ Sonny ♥ said...

how wonderful , 2 big brothers, her protectors and friends for life...

I always wanted a big brother and I finally got one when I was 22:) mom remarried, AGAIN and with that union I got a brother. He was worth waiting for and added such joy to my life... so sad to loose him only 23 years later.. but I had him and the memories live on.

Beautiful photo of the siblings and the new baby.
Such precious memories this photo will invoke in years to come.
I miss the baby stages....the wonderful smell of a new baby...the coos...the cuddling....the softness of the skin...so many things to list.
I guess I won't be having any more Grands....and I do miss that. Mine are growing up.
I'm so happy for you...
Congratulations!!

She's in good hands now! I bet they'll take very good care of their sweet sister.

Great advice! I think all Dr's should share that. Little ones sometimes don't understand when a new baby arrives in their world. They're all 3 so precious!
