On Saturday evening, September 2nd of 2017, Tyler made his way into our bright happy world, and has been well-snuggled ever since. I got to stop in for a quick visit and snap some cuteness as big brother Mason met “baby brother.”
I met Mason and his Auntie B and Uncle Austin at his house, and we followed them to the hospital.
Mason had a special gift for Tyler - a red fox stuffy!
We walked in (my boys joined us until we got to the room - they got to meet a few days later!) with Auntie & Uncle, and headed up the elevator to meet little bro.
Mason & Daddy were so excited to see each other after a night apart!
Into the double doors we went with Mason charging along, fox in hand. “Give, baby Tyler!” he’d said before we came in. It’s time!
Behind this door is so much love, and so many snuggles to be had. Mason was ready for all of it, and his introduction was one of the sweetest things I’ve ever witnessed.
Hello, Mommy & Tyler!
Monica, you looked absolutely radiant with love. Some people talk about pregnancy glow which you definitely had, but you had such positive loving energy in that room too. So, so in love, and glowing with it!
I love these tiny toes!
Betina and Austin contributed to the loving feel in this room quite a bit. You two were so sweet getting Mason ready to come over, and then loving on these loves. Happy tears were definitely welling up behind my camera!
As Uncle Austin was holding Tyler, Mason decided to investigate a little further, and fell in love immediately. So many hugs and kisses followed (and more happy tears)!
Ready for the first hold!
Look how tiny! We knew Mason would seem even bigger when Tyler got here, but it’s hard to comprehend how much bigger until it actually happens. This is big kid stuff, holding little brothers. Mason is a pro!
And now, just a whole bunch of cute sweetness with this family of 4…
I see you there, big brother MayJay!
“Hold him? Take him home?” Mason was loving Tyler so much that he just couldn’t get close enough and wanted to hold him even closer. Such a sweetheart!
Gentle, loving hands from Mommy and Mason.
Exploring the toes and the nose, and the “bee-bo!” belly button! “So tiny!”
It was hard to leave this room full of love, but I left to join my boys and visit some family of ours for the day. But yesterday we hopped on over to their house for a visit from all of us!
Kisses and love from the boys! And me, but my goodness how cute are they?! :)
Tim & Monica - we are so in love with baby Ty (you know this, we know)! This season of your lives, while full of adjustments and newness and learning how to navigate the world of two kiddos, is such a beautiful and lovely thing to witness. In all of the crazy moments you find yourselves in, always look to the little ones like this. The craziness will be over before we know it, and we’ll all have a bunch of big kids (and one day adults - but please let that don’t be as soon as it feels like it will be) looking back at this crazy, amazing, wonderful time. We couldn’t be happier for you (not without our hearts bursting, I don’t think)! Love you so much!
