Mia's happenings

Time has just flown by!! Can't believe that Mia is almost 3 weeks old already!! Joey went back to work today...Mia and I hung out all day! She is opening her eyes more and more and spending more time awake during the day.

She really likes sitting in this chair that vibrates. It seems to calm her down. Thanks Vanessa and Beau for letting us borrow it!

Four generations

Four generations of Fujinaka ladies.

Hi-Bachan (great grandma) and Mia

Mia likes sitting in her swing. We even were able to get some pictures with her eyes open.

Hoppy Easter!

Mia came in time to celebrate her first Easter with her family. Auntie Lisa bought her the cutest little outfit. Her day consisted of coming home from the hospital, some visitors, and dinner cooked by her Grandma.

Here I am in my new outfit!

Here is the view from my rear!

Our New Arrival

Our adventure began on Thursday night, April 9th, around 11:30 pm. Joey and I got back from bowling and were getting ready for bed. I had to go to the bathroom (like usual) and realized that my water broke. We called the hospital and they said to come right in. We got to the hospital and the waiting process began. My parents, my sister, Joey's parents and Vanessa joined Joey and I in the waiting process.

My mom was fascinated with the baby heart and contraction monitor.

Auntie Lisa is knitting Baby Mia a blanket.

Vanessa reading a magazine to pass the time.

I'm still smiling (for now)!!

18 hours later, it was time to push. I pushed for about 45 minutes and our doctor didn't think Mia was making the progress that she should have been. She suggested that we consider a C-Section. Taking our doctor's advice and better judgment we opted for the C-Section. My family and Joey's family anxiously awaited good news.
Here is Mia...right out of mommy's stomach! She's waving "hi!"

Mia's stats:
Arrival date: April 10, 2009

The next day, Saturday, Mia had many many visitors. Here are her new family members:

Mia is happy to be with us and can't wait to meet everyone! Thank you for all of your well wishes and good thoughts!! Until next time...
