The range autofan: invented to calm babies

Maya and Daddy nappin

Maya weighed in at 8 lbs 9 oz by her 2nd week on the planet! It looks like it went to her head. ;) Maya and her fist of fury

Mama loves to mess with the Maya


Big Bed. Little Baby.
Maya likes to smile in her sleep. :)

Photo shoot: Trying to capture the illusive newborn smile

Yes we know that infant smiles don't say much but they are just so damn cute.  Mama tried to force a smile out of Miss Maya the other day. Here is the fruit of those efforts.

"Ok, i'm kinda sleepy you want me to do what now?"

"Daddy, is she serious?"


"Fine then. Let me work one up for you."

"You ready Mama? I'm 'bout to get all serious and lay down some smiles up in here." This is not a smile. Amy wants to threaten to show this to Maya's boyfriends when she gets older. Since Maya will never date I figure what's the harm in posting it publically?  Ok, that will have to do... for now.

Milestones: Maya's first week and losing the stump

Maya is one week old today. While Amy and I might have to celebrate keeping her alive so far with a couple of mimosas or something, Maya rang in her first week by losing her umbilical stump! Looks like she might have an outie. (or she is horribly malnourished)

The scary thing is that we can't find said stump anywhere.

I wonder if these two know anything about it.

Happy first week birthday Maya!
