I am so sorry to hear about your loss!
I've never brought a bird that young home, both or ours were a bit older. I guess I'd let the person who raised the bird guide me a bit in how to handle the first few days. With a bird that isn't very used to handling, some people advise just sitting by the cage and talking, but I think I'd handle the bird as much as their comfort level allowed. The other thing to avoid is to handle them a lot more than you will be able to normally, since it may be hard to wean them off it once things have settled into a routine.
My husband got me the Super Pet EZ care activity center for small birds. I think it was $99 and it's quite a good thing for the price. Powder-coated metal, reasonably well made, tons of toy hooks.
Good luck with your new baby!
