She is such an amazing baby and (knock on wood) has been sleeping really well. She has been sleeping in her crib for about a week now! YAY!! That's exciting and I have finally made it back to sleeping in bed with my husband! What a relief! :)
We are just so blessed to have her here!! :)

On Mother's Day, it was a bittersweet day for me. It was an amazing day because I was
finally blessed to be a mom on mother's day...something I had dreamed of for far to long. However, it reminded me of all those who are still struggling to become mothers. Infertility doesn't stop on certain days of the year, and for me, Mother's Day was always one of the hardest holidays to deal with.
This Mother's Day was also extra special because we had Mia dedicated at church. Infant dedication basically states in front of the church that we plan to raise her in a Christian household, loving and knowing the God that created her. It was a very special and very emotional time for Josh and I...once again realizing the creation we have been blessed to call our daughter.
Here she is in her dedication dress.
And here is Pastor Rich dedicating our little girl!
And here we are as a family on Mother's Day
Well, lastly on May 8th (Mia's due date) she had her first doctor's appointment...the 2 week check-up. She passed everything with flying colors, including her weight. She is 8lbs, 12oz and 21 inches long...that means that she has gained almost a pound since her birth weight! YAY!! She is obviously eating well.
