The new love of my life

On July 24th at 8:27pm the newest member of my family, Eisley Maya, was born. Naturally, she’s perfect πŸ™‚

It is still early on, but on the first night home my getting no sleep was my own doing (constantly checking to ensure she was still breathing) as she was calmly sleeping.

She’s beautiful and I can’t wait to see what adventures she’ll bring me.

For those who care, I have more pictures on my Facebook page. Also, my wife has a web album up which can be reached via

Cheers all.

Update: Ok, immediately after this blog entry Eisley decided that she would actively keep us up all night.


  1. Congratulations Josh! She’s adorable!!!!

  6. Congratulations Josh! All the best to you and your family!

    I can’t agree with Josh B that parenthood is a piece of cake, but I can say that it’s one of the most rewarding experiences one can go through πŸ˜‰

  8. Josh,

    Welcome to fatherhood, she does look perfect. Try and remember what sleep was like, it’s easy to forget when you don’t get any. Although totally worth it, I’d say your daughter has about 14 years before she has to worry about my son. πŸ˜‰

    Congrats, Josh. Hope all 3 of you are doing well.

    BTW, who won?

  15. Hilariously… Rachel’s dad won. So I was like “well that’s not really fair… we should go to the next time down”. The winner there was… her mom.

    So there ya go..

  16. Hi Josh,
    Congratulations!!!!! She is soo beautiful. And I really liked the picture where you were holding her and at the same time doing something related to work. She looked so adorable, and she didn’t care the way you were holding her, she just slept so comfortably. Not enough words to explain that picture :-).
