Introducing Maia Jayde

February 13, 2009 at 9:54 am (Baby Stuff)


8lb 12 oz, 19.5 inches.  Labour began at 3:30pm, water broke at 11:02pm, pushing started at 11:47pm, baby arrived at 1:07am on Feb 13th. Completely unmedicated home birth.

Everyone is healthy, happy, and totally in love.  More updates when I can stop staring at her 🙂

    Hurray! Welcome Maia. I didn’t think it would take too long once it got started seeing as how you were pretty dilated already. And hurray for having exactly the birth you wanted and planned for. Can’t wait to see more pictures and hear more details. And I love that she was born on Friday the 13th. And wow almost 9 pounds before her EDD!

    P.S. They are so sleepy the first few days, try and sleep as much as you can then too (let Chris cook and clean). I had too much adrenaline and couldn’t really (plus I was in the hospital) but I regret not taking advantage of it because once they wake up more there is less sleep to be had.

    Big sister (even though I’m on mom’s name) just seeing that photo I’m wildly in love with my niece. I can’t wait to meet her next month. I’m glad to hear you did it at home, and w/o any meds, perfectly. I am so proud of you, and I love you tons! I’m going to show grandpa his greatgranddaughter the moment he walks back in. (He’s spoiling me and checking my car fluids. You know how we do 😉 He’ll be so excited. ❤

    She is the most beautiful baby in the ENTIRE world! I am at work and trying not to cry – damn the combination of you, your baby, and my hormones.

    I am so pleased for all three of you that things went safely and quickly. Hope Mom and baby are resting and your new enlarged family will continue to take lots of pictures.

    You are both amazing girlies!

    Grandpa (brand new great-grandpa) was in awe of your beautiful baby girl. At first he didn’t have his glasses on, and I thought he was going to bowl me over to find them so he could have a look. Anyway, wonderful and lovely and all my best ❤ Tell Chris congratulations, but I’ll probably phone you later. 🙂 Oh, and I love Maia’s little squishy face.
