15 weeks and growing big!

It is amazing to watch Mia change and grow everyday. She is such a blessing to us and our family. This has been an extremely sad and exciting week. It is sad because my grandmother is passing away. We are to the point where we are just waiting. Grandma loved Mia so much . After her surgery, all she wanted to see was Mia...it is so amazing to me to see the joy a child can bring to others. Tonight we got to take Mia to the hospital to say goodbye to grandma. I know she doesn't understand and won't remember, but hopefully at least grandma felt her presence tonight. The thing that keeps me going is knowing that when Grandma passes she will be in Heaven with the Father that loves us so much! I know that she will always watch over us and I know that Mia will always have a very special guardian angel!

The exciting news is that Mia is going to be a big cousin...and more exciting...to twins! Yes, my little sister is having twins. We are so excited. What a blessing. I know Grandma would have been so excited and I know she will be watch over them as well.

Well, here are some new pictures...the first one is old...it is when Mia was 2 days old and still in the hospital...but these pictures mean so much I wanted to share.
Here is great-grandma Julie and Mia
And here is 4 generations! I am so blessed that she was able to meet her, even if just for a short time! I love you, grandma!
Well, fast forward...here she is at 15 weeks...isn't it amazing how much she has changed? This is her in the jumparoo a friend let me borrow...she loves it!!
When in doubt, pinky out!
15 weeks...what a cutie!
SO BIG!!!
Mia and her hero, who she calls "Daddy"!

Look at that big girl!! It's hard to believe she's already 15 weeks old. Where is the time going?!?

Congratulations Aunt Heather (and to your sister)! Twins can be fun...I should know 'cause I'm a twin myself. I'll be praying for a happy and healthy pregnancy for your sister and the babies.

You have been in my thoughts and prayers the past few days. I'm so sorry to hear about your grandma. Please let me know if there's anything I can do.
