FINALLY!!


Nope, not a heart... but a smile!! Today little Mia decided to smile. I feel a little sad because it was not I who made her smile. While in daddy's arms she decided to give up her first smile. I guess he looks funnier than me ;-) I was too excited witnessing it, that I didn't have time to get the camera. She really likes daddy pretending to sneeze.

Daddy's next job is to get her to laugh!

Yea! That's so sweet. I bet Daddy feels pretty special- the first smiles are definitely the sweetest! Keep hanging in there guys- the next post will have to be about a new heart!

OK, no more finally in the title until it is that she FINALLY has a new heart! I mean don't get me wrong, I am so excited that she hit this mile stone for you and happy that you were there. I love those little baby smiles but I just about fell out of my chair when I saw the title!! Keep smiling Mia, the "other" finally will come soon :-)!

Yeah! I love those first smiles. Way to go Daddy!! Now, we just need the other FINALLY to happen! I'm so glad you were able to join us for dinner and shopping on Saturday. You are one amazing lady! I got your freezer restocked :-)(and you weren't kidding - you have A LOT in there) and will get your key to John.

No more titles with FINALLY until she gets her heart...I lost my breath and my heart skipped a beat! That's great that she smiled though! Can't wait until you catch it on camera!

Yay! If she does laugh get a video! That pic is so sweet. I love baby feet.

I've hung out with John enough to know you're powerless to NOT smile. I must say I'm surprised it was fake sneezing and not Ebonics that finally got her to let loose...

I will not lie when I read the title Finally... I stopped breathing. I am very excited your sweet Mia smiled although was hoping for a heart... That will be next! I am sure it was a smile that just melted you. You inspire me and help me put a new perspective on things. The day to day things I worry or stress about are so trivial. You have made me realize I need to appreciate the simple moments and not to take a moment for granted. Hang in there Mimi and family. We all love you Mia!

Mimi - Don't do that to me!!! No Teasing like that, everytime I click on your blog I just cross my fingers that it's going to be about Mia's new heart. So of course when I saw the title FINALLY - My heart just about jumped out of my chest. Don't tease me like that :)

I'm so happy she smiled for you. Be sure and catch the next one on camera, we all want to see it too. I'm sure many more smiles are coming.

That just warms my heart to hear that. Except you did make me start to cry at the beginning. Yes, like everyone, we thought the heart was coming to you! Still praying for that day to come soon! Many blessing to you from Michigan.
Love, Suzie
