baby maya

This past Friday my brother and his wife had their 3rd daughter! Marci went into labor Thursday night so all night long we slept with one ear open waiting for the call to come to the hospital and meet baby Maya. But Maya let her parents and the rest of us sleep all night long and finally came at 7:05 am. As soon as we got the call, we jumped out of bed and hurried over to the hospital to see the new arrival!

Maya Kate 6 lbs. 10 oz.

This next photo was the face she was making while Josh was holding her. Is that not the cutest?!

Me & Maya. As I was holding her, our baby was kicking her!! They are totally going to be best friends and our baby was just saying hello. It was so funny!

She was so awake and alert! She just looked right at you when you held her. It was amazing.

Then the big sisters arrived. They were so excited to see their new baby!

My dad was a very proud Papa!

One big happy family!

As if we weren't excited enough, Maya's birth has made Josh and I even MORE excited for the arrival of our own little girl. We just can't wait!


  1. Can I just say (in the nicest possible way) that I despise your sister in law?!?! How on Earth is she looking so awake and perky after just giving birth? I have photos taken about five hours after I had my son where I look like I'm on another planet and practically comatose! I thought people only looked that bright and alert immediately after birth on TV?

    Gorgeous photos, welcome baby Maya!

  2. I asked her the same thing and she said she had almost a full night's rest because of her epidural. It's all about the epidural baby!!!

  3. Where have I been? I didn't even know Marci was prego again!? Maya is adorable & looks totally like a rodee to me! You look amazing and are the most photogenic person I know! Seriously I don't think I have ever seen a "bad" pic of you & YOU will be one of those post delivery Mom's that look FABULOUS! I can't wait :)

    PS Their middle cutie could be a "minnie me" of you! She is so cute!!

  4. Awww! Congrats on your beautiful new niece Britt!

  5. Awwwww How sweet!!! New babies are such a joy!! They are so small and precious!!! Congrats to your whole family!!!Enjoy her they grow up so fast :)...but it's a fun ride!
