love at first sight {Mia & James meet}

Getting James ready to meet his big sister!
She was SO happy to see us, but kept looking past us wanting to see James!
The four of us together for the first time! Finally!!
Gotta poke his eyes first to make sure they are real ;)
 After holding James, Mia wanted to show us her new drawing pad from grandparents. Then she immediately asked Eric to draw a picture of her & James :)
I never would have guessed it after seeing how excited Mia was to meet James... but when she woke up that morning and my mom told her that James was here and tried to show her pictures we had texted, Mia wouldn't have anything to do with it! She didn't want to talk about him, see pictures of him, nothing! But when my parents brought her to the hospital later that morning, Eric met them and brought Mia to our room. I knew she would be excited to see me and I was just as excited to see her! After a huge hug I realized she was looking past us into the room. Big sister was eager to get her eyes on baby brother! I'm pretty sure the pictures do all the talking... it was the sweetest reunion to have my family of FOUR together for the first time! I am so grateful Chrissy from Let Me See You Sparkle Photography was there to capture these precious moments!
After a good visit that morning my parents took Mia home for a nap, then came back when she woke. Mia jumped into bed with me and held James... for the next HOUR! She seriously held him for an hour and anytime we asked if she was done she replied, "No! Don't touch! It's MY baby brudder!" She finally gave him up when the nurse offered her chocolate milk so that she could take his vitals, ha ha! Mia has been the best big sister since day one and I could not be more grateful! My heart is so full... I never could have imagined feeling this much love for my little people!

Be still my heart, how precious are these pictures? I mean, they are beyond beautiful. Mia is too sweet and I think it's hilarious she wanted to check to make sure his eyes were real. You looked fabulous in your robe, lady! What a wonderful first picture of your family of four <3!

Oh my goodness. The sweetness. What an amazing big sister! I love that she was excited to see you but kept looking past you to see her brother and then wouldn't put him down for an HOUR. That's like an eternity in toddler time so you know her love for him runs deep!

Too sweet! Love that the nurse had to offer her chocolate milk so she could take his vitals - and that Mia held him for a hour! What a great big sister! :)

Ashley Brickner said...

Love these! It's the best, right?!!! So happy for you!

Evelina said...

What a special moment!! I love that she held him and didn't want to let go!

Wes and Dani said...

Haha! My kids did the same thing with Hazel. My mom showed them a pic right after my csection and they both just looked at it with blank faces and went back to their toys. When they got to the hospital, though, they couldn't contain their enthusiasm. It was adorable!

Kimberly said...

WHY AM I CRYING!!?!?!? For the love my pregnancy hormones are out of control. Olivia and Axel being best friends is my favorite, it will just keep getting better for your two!

Brittany said...

Why doesn't this surprise me at all?! Of course Mia was an absolute angel with James! I can't get over the idea of her wanting to hold him and not let him go. So sweet! Wheat's parents have a hilarious/scary story when they first brought his little brother home, they once caught Wheat accidentally smothering him with a pillow. When they told him not to do that and why it was dangerous, little two-year-old Wheat replied, "I thought he needed a pillow under his head." I melt.
