Congratulations! She sure does look just like Mia. Enjoy!! I love the pictures of the babies together - special for these two girlies to share a birthday!

Another beautiful lady to join your household. I love the pics of the girls with Brie. It is so special. God is so good!

I also laughed at the picture of Brie crying. I am thinking her and Grace will get along famously! (:

Congratulations Mel! What a cutie pie. She looks just like Mia did. I love her name! Did Dan tell you that's what I had secretly guessed? I'm so excited for Mia too! No wonder she didn't want to go to Nana's!
