I’m an auntie again! Five times I’ve been able to look at the gorgeous, brand-new face of my niece or nephew and I am so humbled by even the thought of it. This time around, Ms. Maya Evelyn, all 8 lbs., 6 oz. and 21 inches of her, has made her grand entrance into this world, and upon her first breath is more loved than I could ever dream of putting into words. Her middle name makes my 95-year-old grandma a namesake. Although they’re yet to meet, I can guarantee tears from this proud auntie.
Maya is a laid-back complete sweetheart, and Ella and Carter are fabulous older siblings. Sometimes there are occurrences in your life that can be described by details, but to put emotions into writing seems almost trivial. This is indeed one of those times. Welcome sweet baby girl! Life is good.
