The Bean Has Landed

Hey everybody! Chris here. I just wanted to share the news that the Bean has arrived. Amelia (Mia) Morgan Cactus-Fish was born Friday morning at 9:52. She weighed in at 7 lbs 13 oz and was just a bit over 20 inches long.

Beth made it through surgery incredibly well and both are resting comfortably. Although I don't think Beth is too comfortable and Mia doesn't really seem to be resting. The bags under my eyes can show that!

Don't worry. Beth will be back soon and I'll continue to update when I can sneak away from the hospital briefly. Thanks for all your support.

I read your blog daily,and it has been very exciting reading about the bean. I kept checking all day to see a picture. You all made me cry... Too beautiful! Welcome to the world have wonderful parents!!! Congrats. I wish you all the luck,love and sleep you can get...

Congrats to you, Beth and Chris! And welcome little Mia! Happy to hear all went well and both mom and little one are doing well.

LOVE the name!

Yeah! Way to go Beth! Your daughter is beautiful, and your family looks so happy and complete. Congradulations and love to you all, I'm amazingly happy for you. Welcome home Mia.

Congratulations! She really is quite adorable.

Now, about the name... I LOVE it! (Which I'm sure was a big concern for you both as you tried to choose one. Not, "oh dear, this kid will be stuck with this name for life so it'd better be good," but, "We really should choose something that those random internet people we don't know in real life will like!" Uh, yeah. That said, it's a beautiful name and I believe it was one of my suggestions! Woo hoo! Of course, it should be noted that someone after me suggested Amelia with Mia as the nickname, but I prefer to focus on the fact that I was the first!

So yeah, congrats on the baby. Glad you're all doing well. Just understand that I'm taking full credit for naming your first-born.

Congratulations! I love the name and both mom and baby look wonderful.

Congratulations, mama.

Enjoy every single minute, the time flies by.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Much love.


Congratulations! She's adorable!
