Meet Maya's Baby...

Guess who's here?! That's right... We had our baby on Thursday morning! He was due on February 9th, but I went into labor on Wednesday evening. After a fairly quick, uneventful labor and delivery, Jonah was born at 1:51 on Thursday morning. He was 6 pounds, 14 ounces, and 20 inches long. He has been a sweet, happy, little boy, and we are so excited to bring him home in a few hours. Maya has been with my parents for the past 2 days, and she is having a blast. She has visited us in the hospital 3 times, and she loves her baby brother. I'm sure it will be different once we come home with Jonah, and my parents leave on Sunday, but for now, she is just excited to take care of her baby. She even says his name perfectly! I have a million photos and videos, but these will have to be okay for now. I'll post more soon. Oh, and for those of us who have emailed or called us - thank you! We will get back to you soon!

"When Mommy said 'good night' to me on Wednesday, she still had the baby in her belly."

"He's here! Happy birthday, Jonah!"

"Mommy says this is exactly what I looked like as a newborn."

"Censor that tushy! Jonah might be angry about this photo someday!"

"Mommy loves this baby, but she still loves me, too."

"This is Jonah's first tubby. He takes a shower, like me!"

"Grammy loves the baby, but she plays will me a lot, too."

"I don't know about this new guy..."

"Nevermind. He grew on me. I like his feet."

"Jonah has really long fingernails. He scratched up his face in the first couple of hours after he was born."

"Mommy, why is the baby so sleepy?"

Wow! He is beautiful. Mazel Tov on the birth of Jonah. Will Jonah share his sister's blog or will there be a new one for him? Hope to see you all soon. Remember the big difference between girl babies and boy babies. . . is in the changing. Enough said you will have to figure that out for yourselves.

Love Hugs and Kisses

So happy for you! He does look a bit like Maya at birth! That means he will be quite the looker :) Hope you are feeling well and have a smooth transition home. Advice....just enjoy, sleep whenever you can and don't worry about cleaning and cooking right now (looks like you have enough bread to last you quite a while). Get a house cleaner just for now,while you recover and adjust- it is sooooo worth it! Love you and congrats to all!! xoxo
