More of Mila

Here are a few more pics for you to feast on and enjoy.  I have just fallen in love with Mila.  She is such a mellow baby and she is always chill and happy - very different from the very anxious personality of my Cade, which was apparent, even from the very beginning.  Of course I adore Cade, but I am hoping she will stay this calm, so I can experience having an "easy" baby for once!  She is a champion breast-feeder too, and is just in general such a joy to be around.  My heart is so happy right now.  :)

Today is my birthday, and I cannot picture a better day - even though I have been stuck in the hospital all day - to both not be pregnant anymore, and to get this most amazing gift of my daughter.  It's definitely been over-shadowed this year, though of course I don't mind!  I even flat-out forgot it was my birthday today until my twin brother texted me and wished me a happy day - it was funny...not even remembering my own birthday!

We are both doing well, and are coming home from the hospital tomorrow.  I will post Mila's birth story soon, so you can know all the details, but for now, you'll just get a few more pics.  :)

Cade meeting Mila for the first time.  He is very gentle around her, but nervous!


With my two favorite people in the world - my children.

Oh my heart!  The hat!


Beautiful baby in a basket.  :)

Mila is gorgeous. And you look a bit different in these photos - so happy, so full of life. (Not that you didn't look happy & full of life before!)

All the best!

Brie looks GLOWING in these photos... so happy, soooooo relaxed looking. :)

Did you noticed the pic of the baby with the name tag that said a different name? I was confused. I mean, of course I knew it was Mila due to the hat!!!
