Mamma, Mia!



Baby Mia has arrived! She was born at 12 o'clock high noon. She weighs 6lbs 14oz and if they know her length, they haven't said. She is currently breathing on her own and so far is sustaining her own life. We haven't been able to hold her yet (two hours later) and are going to whisk her off to Children's Hospital as soon as they get her IV in. She is beautiful and (we hear) that she has a good cry. Mimi is doing good. Just really tired. Oh, and her hair appeared blonde when she was born, which is different than our other two who had really dark hair at birth. Jensen's hair was almost black. Mia's a light brown. I will soon turn blonde as did Jensen's and Ellie's.

What a precious little angel you are, Mia! You are so very loved and so very blessed to have come to the arms of John and Mimi!--as we are blessed to be able to have you in our lives! You all have been in our thoughts ALL day and we will continue to pray for you all in the days to come. Please let us know what kind of help you might need--or when Mimi (or Mia) would like a visitor or two.
Much love...

Welcome to the world lil’ Mia... looks like you're following in Ellie's footsteps and inherited your Papa's nose. It looks adorable on two though and that (the adorableness) you get from your Mamma.
