Jessica and I are ecstatic to announce the birth of our daughter, Maya Juliet Douglas.
Maya was named for the place in the world that Jess and I love the most -- the Mayan Riviera. She came out via C-section at exactly 1:00am on Wednesday morning, November 25, 2009. Mom and Maya are both doing great and sleeping quietly by my side as I write this post-- and I've been smiling for almost seven hours (so much so that my cheeks hurt).
Maya is absolutely beautiful. She has deep blue eyes and a full head of dirty blonde hair. Her ears are relatively floppy, and she definitely has Jess's nose and my eye shape. She is velvety smooth to the touch and smells so pure. She enjoys suckling on my finger, and Jess has already breastfed her once. Everything is bliss.
Thank you to everyone for their thoughts and prayers.
And now... take a look at this heartthrob. (More photos and video coming soon)
