Welcome Baby Maiya!

We are so unbelievably happy to announce the long-awaited arrival of our new baby! I only have a minute to post, so here are the quick stats:

Maiya Grace Kuida-Osumi
Born Tuesday, February 1st.
8 lbs., 11 oz.
20 1/2" long.

My water broke on Monday morning at 4:10 am, and she was born the following night at 5:41 pm, so if you do the math it was a 37 1/2 hour process, that had many ups and downs, but the end result is just the most amazing thing, We are enamored with our new beautiful little girl, and are adjusting to parenthood, and already she is teaching us many new things about being parents. Stay tuned for the delivery story and updates on parenthood from me and Tony.

Come into the circle, circle of life
Welcome to the dream of a paradise
What was once a ruin can be reborn
Just like sun appearing after a storm

Sun above, earth below,
seeds of love, let the children grow,
I... Dream a Garden!

Hi Congratulations to the new parents. Baby Maiya is so cute. I assume the name is after the Buddha's Mother Maya, but with a different spelling.
