More pics of Mina

So many people were asking for more pics I thought I'd oblige! Every day Mina's more alert. She has the most beautiful, thick black hair and eyes. Both her birth parents are hispanic.

Little Ethan, born 9 and 1/2 weeks ago isn't so little any more! He's smiling and cooing a lot now and it's so cute!

Sierra loves holding Mina. She'll just hold her and rock her for up to 15 minutes! It's very cute. When Geoff's mom came to visit and was holding Mina, Sierra told her, "You're holding her too long," because Sierra wanted a turn! We had to remind her that she'd get lots of time to hold Mina since we all live together.

Geoff has been using Elisa's "breast friend" (that's the real name by the way!) which snaps around your waist, because it really does give you support when holding a baby. Notice the remote control in the front pocket! He actually forgot he put it there and was looking all over for it until he remembered.

Sweet little Mina! She's so tiny that only a few of her clothes actually fit her! We went out and looked for a couple outfits yesterday and all the 0-3 month outfits were huge! We finally bought one newborn and one preemie outfit. Even the newborn diapers are a little big.


  1. Soooo beautiful! We are thrilled for you! She truly is so precious!
    Also - no worries, our kids are all in preemie clothes for a few weeks cause they are just skinny! (And preemie diapers because of their skinny legs!)
    Oh - and I love the remote holder!!! Funny!

  2. CONGRATULATIONS! That is SOOOO exciting and Mina is so cute. She is a wonderful addition to your family. We can't wait to see her in person.

  3. Congradulations!! I couldn't be happier for you!

  4. Melissa,

    I cannot tell you how excited I am for you!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know you two have been through a lot, and have been waiting years for this. I know you two will be amazing parents!! Congrats!!

  5. Look at all that hair! Aunt Krista needs to make that girl some hairbows. Only the boys in our family are born with enough hair to clip a bow in and Tom won't allow it. Although I have snuck a few in. (shh don't tell.) What a precious girl. We can't wait to meet her and Ethan.

  6. Geoff and Melissa,
    Congrats!! She is absolutely adorable and we couldn't be happier for you.
