introducing Paige Clara Martin


Paige Clara Martin was born at 10:07 on Saturday morning, February 28th. She’s a little nugget, weighing 6lbs 15oz. And that’s at one day shy of 42 weeks gestation! She is 20″ long with strawberry blonde hair and a possible dimple. IMG_8966_edited-1

To say we are smitten is an understatement. She’s captured our hearts completely. Every facial expression is the cutest thing we’ve ever seen and every squawk the cutest noise. We’ve gone from our comfortable adult only life to raving about how great that two hour stretch of sleep felt. Things are going well and we’re looking forward to adding Alfred back to the mix tomorrow.


I’m working on writing out Paige’s birth story as a way to process it myself. The way in which it occurred is so far from our birth plan it’s comical. But at the end of the day we have a healthy baby, and a healthy mama to take care of her. That’s what really matters. It’s not a short story, but it is one with a very sweet ending.
