One day old

Day one breathing air for Mia. Jenn's medicine had not worn off in the morning, so when I went back to the hospital to see them, she was feeling pretty good. The baby is perfect. She is nursing steadily, and she knows her daddy's voice.


I laughed last night when we turned on the tv in the Jenn's room. Mia's first sport on tv was cock fighting. Not something you see on tv in the Carolinas. They fought to the death, not like most of the fights I've seen on the streets where they fight until one chicken runs away, or a passing motorcycle breaks up the crowd, giving the roosters a chance to regroup. The owner of a "chicken" rooster might get his head thumped by jeering spectators. I have this on tape somewhere, I'll try and dig it out. It is something you should see to appreciate.

I can’t stop talking baby talk to these pictures. What an exquisite little angle.
And her name, Mia Grace, is beautiful. Heidi’s photographs of the birth experience are superb – beyond words. The image of Mia Grace, Jenn and Luis together, apparently moments after delivery, defies description. One must just look at this sterling image and pray, weep, laugh….absorb the joyous wonder.
My deepest love to all of you.

Devotedly,
Frost

Correction - not "little angle" - little angel...!

I'm so excited I made a typo booboo.

I know there are loads of earthshaking things going on in the world today and that there are serious human, economic, political and other issues to cover in the DR, but PLEASE
keep Mia’s baby pictures coming so we can see the little changes that happen just about every hour at this early stage of her life. Thank you.

Wow - she doesn't look like a typical newborn (all wrinkly)! She looks older than that! She's BEAUTIFUL!!!
