Judah Teziah Maxwell

Well, well,

The wait is over. Judah Teziah is here. It was as smooth a birth as could be expected given the fact that Alasha had to be induced. Her blood pressure was not her friend and our Dr. thought it best for mother and son to bring him on out. So on March 19, 2008 with God's blessing and a little medical help Judah came to greet us at 11:24a. He was 6.9 pounds and 19" long. He has well developed lungs already. Mother and son are doing very well. Alasha is awesome. She had no pain medicine and a very quick labor, so fast in fact that the doctor did not make the actual birth. She was about 45 to 50 seconds to late. Here are a few picture's. Jonah's first words for his brother were, "He is small". I think Jonah was hoping he would come in the 3yr old version right from birth. Thanks to all for so many things - mainly your prayers.

Jonah vs Elmo!

Dad - Hey Jonah! You got an Elmo!
Jonah - Uh! Hey - who let you out of the TV. Dad, help me out here - Elmo is in my personal space. Shouldn't you introduce us. Back up Elmo - I don't know you like that. Slow your roll Elmo!

This new relationship took a little warming up to. Jonah already has a huge Nemo, that Mrs. Ellie got for him, but Elmo took him by surprise.


This is hard work and I'm glad I got it!

Thanks for the help Dad!

Happy Birthday Jonah!

Well hello my friends,

I am late getting this up, but that is on par with life for the Maxwell's right now. February 23rd was Jonah Tobias Maxwell's 3rd birthday! It was an awesome day. There was a party, pizza, gifts, friends, and time to play. Jonah had been looking forward to "Jonah's birfday" all week. We told him that there would friends and cuppecakes, and he was as excited as - well he was just normal for Jonah with a little more added to it. The day went as smooth as a crazy father and a very pregnant mother could have wanted. All things considered, Jonah had a blast and that was our main concern. We do need your prayers because Jonah had all female friends at his party. Jonah was so excited to blow the candle on his cuppecake and he did a great job. Thanks to all who made the day special whether with your presence or in prayer and spirit. We love you all and now await the arrival of Judah.
