Fun at home...


Stella finds Daddy hilarious!


Stella's first attempt at rice cereal...

I have been home from the hospital since Friday morning. The surgery went well and now I am just really sore. Stefano has been off all week to take care of Stella and he has been a very busy boy!!! We had a really nice Thanksgiving and Stella was the center of attention, of course. The next morning I went Christmas shopping with my mom and sisters at 4:00am. We shopped til we dropped and had a great day!! Princess Stella Marie is doing wonderfully! She is the happiest baby and her personality is hilarious!!! Everything she does makes us laugh and it is a dream come true to have her home with us. As of yesterday she is 12.9 lbs and easily gaining the weight that we worried she would never gain. Life is much more beautiful since Stella has been in it.

Quick update on Sara's surgery...

Mommy always knows best...

A proud Dad of a tough little girl!

She'll eventually outgrow it.

She likes to play on her swing.

Wearing her hat makes her smile.

Sara had her surgery Monday morning, and everything went really well. It was not an easy one, and there were lots of things to take in consideration before making that decision. She is still in lots of pain, and was pretty sick at her stomach most of the day. When I brought Stella to visit Mommy yesterday, she immediately felt better. It's amazing how some things work...
Hopefully she'll be able to come home Wednesday afternoon, if not, it's going to be Thursday morning. -(Can't wait!) (So can't Stella!)- Stella is really missing her Mommy, she keeps glancing around the room as if something is not right, then looks at me with a big question mark on her head.

Stella is doing great, she keeps gaining weight. She is probably a little over 12 lbs. right now. We have a Dr's Appointment on Friday so she can get her monthly RSV shot, and hopefully they'll want to start some solids as well.
