Mia pics and video

Sorry, but we just can't get enough of her, and now that mommy's feeling a little better, prepare yourself for mass Mia picture posting!  :)

Holy Hannah does a having a baby change your whole view of packing for a trip!  How many bags and items did we check for our little Mia?  Can you say FOUR?!?!  Car seat, stroller, diaper bag, and big black duffel bag with diapers, wipes, blankets, outfits, socks, hair bows, and a thousand misc items of necessity.  Oh my!

Our little family heading out on our first family flight/trip to Seattle for Michael and Deena's wedding.

Mia's first flight and a little smile caught on video.  Mia did great on the flights to and from Seattle and just chilled on mommy's pillow on either mama's or papa's lap.  Such a great baby!!!

Yay! - cooler Seattle weather means we can finally use some of the cute long sleeved outfits we were given!

Our little family on our first "cruise", a boat ride to an island in Seattle, dinner on an island and then a ride back.  All bundled up on the chilly ride over.  I think Mia liked the rocking of the boat.  :)  Thanks to Auntie Brienne who's cousin hooked us all up.  We were able to go on the $80 a person tour for only $20 a person - woooo whoooo!!!!  Smokin' hot deal!!!

Our little cutie pie, all bundled up and wide awake in mama's arms.  Love those big brown eyes!

Oh, and there WERE other people from the family on the trip.  :) 

Newlyweds Deena and Mike (oh, and us in the background).  :)

Grandma snuggling on grandpa, Uncle Kevin, and Uncle Dan and Auntie Brienne with Dan doing his sexy "kissy lips" pose once again.  :)

Where's darling cousin Sadie you ask?  Well, down here of course, enjoying the view from her stroller. 
Such a smiley little thing!

Grandpa, Uncle Kevin, and Auntie Tiffany chillin' on the boat trip over.

Now, here are some of Mia's "official" one month old pictures that we were finally able to take now that we are home safe and sound and have the blanket and giraffe for the monthly shots.  :)  Thanks to Auntie Michelle who got Mia the blanket.  It's design name is Mia Rose, so we just had to register for it and Auntie Michelle couldn't resist getting it for her when she saw it's name.  Thank you Auntie Mish, even though you are now officially "across the pond" in the UK, we won't forget you!!!

All stretched out in a food coma.

Oh, little one, all stretching and yet not...  :)

In grandma Lina's rocking chair as cozy as can be.

Tia Bertha learned how to feed me her very first try!!! 
(Mama was a little - okay a LOT - envious of her learning curve, but don't tell Tia Bertha.)

Below are some practice shots of Mia on papa's arms.  We're going to try again when she's in a milk coma and not quite so wiggly, though we think we still got some good shots.

I love this one of her stretching!  :)

Reading with mama.
Auntie Jaclyn sent us this book in a care package for Mia, along with another book and some darling outfits.  You can always count on teacher friends to send books for babies!  :)This one is our current favorite and Mia loves to be read to.

And last, but not least, a video.  :) 
Mia has, in the last few days, started smiling more and more. 



  1. SOOOOOO fun to see all these photos (and videos!) of Mia . . . Her smile is SO adorable!!!!

    And you are SOOOOO right on 'packing with a baby taking on a whole new dimension' . . . MAN those little critters take a LOT of paraphenalia to maintain, don't they?!? It is AMAZING . . .

    Great pictures!!! (and I love Dan's 'kissy lips' face) LOL!!!! ;o)

  2. I love that last video of her! Her outfit is sooo cute!
