There is so much back story here I am feeling overwhelmed trying to sort out what is and isn’t worth writing about. But, for now, I will stick to the most important part of the story in an attempt to get back to writing here. Without further delay, I introduce Mia Lauren. Born 4/19/07 at 8:00am sharp, weighing in at 7 lbs. 5 oz. and measuring 21 in. Here she is just a few days old.

I love this girl more than I could have every imagined and we are getting used to life as a family of four. Jason has been home taking care of me for a month through bed rest and a crazy birth and the aftermath. He is still off work so things seem pretty manageable. Hopefully I can get in some writing in the next week or so before he goes back to work. When that happens I fear I may never have a moment to myself again.

Congrats! She is beautiful. And, while I was so scared for my husband to go back to work, it really wasn't quite as hard as I had imagined it to be in my head. I wish the same for you.

Though my blogging has totally taken a dive :)

Welcome to Mia! I've been checking this page to find out what's been going on with your family. I'm glad to hear you have been nesting happily together.

Welcome Mia! I was just checking to see if you had posted anything this week, and her beautiful face pops up on my screen. I hope that her crankiness has subsided and that you are okay with Jason being back at work.
