My Mia

I can't really describe the emotions and feelings these last few days have brought into my life. But most of all, nothing but joy fills my heart with a new big place in it for Mia. She is so much fun! Jerry and I are just loving every minute of her and just love watching her change before our eyes. Here are the highlights from the past few days. Now that I am caught up with pics, I will post more often. Thank you all for your love and support. Jerry and I feel so blessed to be surrounded by loving people that support us and care about our little Mia.

Mia is fabulous! She is eating like a champ, which shouldnt be a surprise given the size at birth! She weighed 9lb 1oz, and is 21 inches long. She could be in the world record book for biggest cheeks at birth and the most blonde hair! She is very alert and always looking around at her new environment. She also sleeps great which is such a blessing!

I am recovering from the unexpected c-section. My Dr. and I decided it was safest to go in and get her because I developed a fever during labor and Mia wasnt descending at the rate we wanted her to. Even though surgery is no fun as I am now finding out, it was best for baby and Im so glad she is here safe.

More to come!

She is just beautiful! I totally think she looks like a mini Jen! It is crazy to think your parents are now grandparents! She IS just so precious. I can't wait for my little one to be here (6 weeks left) and for our girls to meet! Take care!

Oh my gosh Jenny where do I start!?!?!

Oh, she is too much, I can't stop staring at how cute she is!! I LOVE those cheeks, they are SO FAT!! She's perfect!! I have to say that I'm so sorry you had to do a C-sect. I'm sure the recovery for you is not ideal...BUT, you have a sweet perfect baby and now days, c-sects seem to be the fad!! (wink)

I'm jealous I can't be there with you to raise our babies together, but LOVE that your mom and pops are there!!

Hey Jerry, you look like you're an old pro with babies!! I knew you could do it!!! YAY!

Love you both, you're in our prayers, we are SO HAPPY FOR YOU!
