Baby Mia Noelle Chou is here!!!

Hi Everyone!
The long awaited arrival of Mia Noelle is finally here!!! She is absolutely perfectly beautiful and amazingly sleeping long enough for me to write this email (Last night, she proceeded to scream ALL night and gave us only 30 minutes of sleep). Mia was born July 13th, 5:36 pm after an induced labor, 6 hours of natural labor, 5 hours of an epidural and only 20 minutes of pushing!!!! She was 6 pounds 13 ounces and 20.5 inches! She has a FULL set of pitch black wavy black hair, huge eyes (in our opinion), and her daddy's skinny chicken legs! Much to our surprise, Mia was born with a cleft lip and palate. To be honest, it has been a rollarcoaster of emotions, but every time we look at our little miracle, WE'RE COMPLETELY IN LOVE!! Below is Jeremy's email...yes, being a doctor and a guy, he goes into much more technical detail =). It's a joy knowing that Mia is special, but as parents, it's overwhelming thinking about the surgeries, the hurt she may endure, and the long road ahead for our family. Please keep us in your prayers and as soon as things settle down, we'll share the 100's of pictures and video clips we've taken. Please pray that Mia's feeding continues to go well and that she will grow exponentially. Because of her cleft lip and palate, feeding time is challenging and requires special bottles and nipples. ENJOY the pictures and please come visit!! I'm already getting restless being at home! =)

-Eunice Chou, Mia, and Jeremy

Here are some pictures of our beautiful daughter! ENJOY!
