Hey! Our hospital gave us a pink-and-blue striped blanket too! Man, that is such a weird coincidence.

Posted by: Jason at July 29, 2005 06:13 PM

Im not so sure I can put that into words. Its just, well...awwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: Kelly M. at July 29, 2005 06:14 PM

The pics were just beautiful. You and beth are so cute together and you've made a precious baby! Congrats again.

Posted by: lrstan at July 29, 2005 06:19 PM

my favorite picture is when Mia is held up to Beth when she is still in the OR, the one you sent out earlier as well. The look on Beth's face is so tender and sweet. It's a great picture.

Oh, and the one of you in the sassy green pants.

Posted by: jodi at July 29, 2005 06:30 PM

Mia is gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing pictures.

Man, Beth looks seriously great for a first time mom, not to mention that she just had major surgery. Mia's got good genes on her side.

Posted by: Polichick at July 29, 2005 06:35 PM

Very cute! Mia is so beautiful (I love the pic of her looking at Beth sorta surprised) and Beth looks great. :)

Posted by: Kitty at July 29, 2005 06:36 PM

those were beautiful! i have tears in my eyes!
with a name and a face as beautiful as she has i'm sure she will inspire awe in everything she does.

Posted by: monique at July 29, 2005 06:39 PM

She is gorgeous. I love the thick head of dark hair too. You and Beth looked so happy in the pictures also. Congrats

Posted by: Judith at July 29, 2005 06:39 PM

Beautiful child, from beautiful people!

Posted by: Emily at July 29, 2005 07:36 PM

She is just so utterly beautiful. Watching the slideshow just about brought a tear to my eye. You two are both very lucky to have such an adorable baby.

Posted by: Erin at July 29, 2005 07:44 PM

The photos are stunning - they capture exactly what it feels like to have a baby. Everyone looks tired and happy - I'm so happy for you.

Posted by: Monica at July 29, 2005 07:47 PM

Wow! Great pics - and congratulations, again!

Posted by: Empress at July 29, 2005 07:49 PM

Just Beautiful. I listened to the audioblog song while I was looking at the photos (no speakers at work), both for the first time, and I cried muchly. Congratulations again!

She is beautiful! Congrats again, you have a beautiful family!!!

Posted by: jen at July 29, 2005 08:31 PM

Does it make me a huge sap that most of these made me melt, and the last picture made me up?

How does it feel to be a daddy, Duckie?

Posted by: Lauren at July 29, 2005 11:29 PM

You too make beautiful babies! Love all of Mia's hair! My babies were bald...no hair...I didn't have hair as a baby either...Thanks for the good sob of the day! : )

Great slide show Chris, thanks for sharing. Who's the older guy with your daughter? She's already collecting adoring men I see.

Posted by: Nic at July 30, 2005 01:24 AM

I love the last shot, beautiful shot there "Daddy."

Posted by: Michele at July 30, 2005 01:26 AM

So, so beautiful.
Terribly excited for you both, but no way to express it (sorry for the radio silence, C).

Is it LEGAL to be that cute?

Posted by: OSG at July 30, 2005 06:47 AM

Nice pics, Chris. I couldn't load the slideshow (dial-up 28800 sucks, y'know) but did you put music to it?

Hope you and Beth are getting some sleep.

Posted by: Jon in Michigan at July 30, 2005 09:44 AM

That's one beautiful baby! :-)

Posted by: keepergirl at July 30, 2005 09:49 AM

I'm speachless. She's beautiful, Beth is beautiful, you are dashing.. You can see the love just pop out at you looking at those pictures.
Just awesome man, just awesome.

Posted by: Angelia at July 30, 2005 10:35 AM

She's so beautiful, Chris. Those are great pictures. And good for you for taking the camera in the operating room. My husband forgot to take it in!

Posted by: Kelley at July 30, 2005 12:15 PM

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing the photos of Mia.

Posted by: Milly at July 30, 2005 12:54 PM

Thanx for sharing. What a beautiful little angel you have.

Posted by: Adi at July 30, 2005 01:02 PM

Posted by: bmh at July 30, 2005 02:57 PM

OMG! I can't believe she is actually here! I'm bawling my stupid head off...again!

She is absolutely beautiful, Chris!

Posted by: doulazanie at July 30, 2005 04:54 PM

Those pics are just fantastic, Chris, and your wife and daughter are beautiful beyond words. You look at peace while holding her, and that says a lot. Congratulations to all of you!!!

Posted by: ironic1 at July 30, 2005 06:05 PM

Your family is very beautiful.

Posted by: Rori at July 30, 2005 06:42 PM

I can totally see why ya'll are so in love....it only gets better (and worse) from here.

Posted by: Queen Of Ass at July 30, 2005 06:47 PM

i've been following the whole story for awhile now but haven't ever commented. however, i feel mia's birth warrants a welcome to her and a huge congratulations to you and beth! your new little family looks beautiful and happy.

Posted by: phoebe at July 30, 2005 11:25 PM

So, I love the last one that has Beth looking into the camera. Mia's face is so cute, she looks thrilled to get to go home with you guys. Oh, and Amelia Bedelia was one of my favorites.

Posted by: jessica at July 31, 2005 06:22 AM

okay - I'm a HUGE cheeseball (I know) - I listened to the song and THEN played the slideshow and I'm sitting here with tears streatming down my cheeks. I'm so happy for you both - what an amazing time. You guys will do just fine, in fact awesomely as parents. I have no doubts. :-)

Posted by: carrster at July 31, 2005 10:40 AM

the photos are amazing. You guys did good. She's a beautiful girl.

Posted by: kalisah at July 31, 2005 04:41 PM

Wow, I am totally speechless. That is one beautiful baby girl. And I say that with all honesty. Most of the time, babies are sort of withered looking, and not that cute. This little girl was gorgeous from the get-go. Mia is definitely going to be a beautiful girl! CONGRATULATIONS MOM AND DAD!!!

Posted by: Katie-be-bored-at-work at July 31, 2005 11:25 PM

very nice pics, shes beautiful!

Posted by: E at July 31, 2005 11:56 PM

Oooooooh, so beautiful....

Posted by: Junkie at August 1, 2005 08:50 AM

OMG!! Chris... Mia is soooooo beautiful! And Beth is still glowing! I am so happy for you both. Your both going to make excelent parents!

Posted by: Tammy at August 1, 2005 12:18 PM

She's BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for sharing the pictures! I

Posted by: Sweety at August 1, 2005 03:41 PM

Congratulations! Fantastic pictures. Brought back the memories of those first moments of holding our first born. What a wonderful feeling! Enjoy parenthood!

Posted by: molly at August 1, 2005 04:29 PM

You have a beautiful family.

Posted by: etherian at August 1, 2005 08:40 PM

Awwww! I'm sorry I'm so late congratulating you! She's beautiful!

Posted by: Ro at August 1, 2005 11:10 PM

Aww, what a cutie. I think she looks like Beth around the eyes. My favorite pic's the one where she's looking up with her hands to her mouth like, "Mommy! I won the lottery!"

Posted by: Fraulein N at August 2, 2005 08:37 AM

listening to that song while seeing these pictures was very cool....she is AMAZING!!!
