Meet Maizah!

meetmaizahI'm so happy to introduce you guys to our daughter, Maizah Rose James.

Maizah (may-ZUH) is a Muslim name with African origin that means "the discerning One". Rose is my favorite flower. She loves jazz music, watching morning talk shows and when her dad hums her to sleep.

I feel like I have been waiting to meet her for so long - 41 weeks to be exact - but it was well worth the wait. She was born via C-section on September 25 (she's a Libra like her daddy!) at 6lbs 2oz. I wish I could articulate words to explain how she makes me feel but honestly there are no words in the English language that are capable of fully expressing the love I have for her.

She'll be three weeks (already!) on Thursday and I can tell you that motherhood has been the most challenging and greatest role that I've had yet.

I'll be slowly getting back into the blogging groove, but this little one is taking up the bulk of my time. And I have to say, I don't mind at all.

My labor and delivery story is quite an interesting one, but I'll save that story for another post.

Thank you guys so much for all the well wishes and kind words on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Hubs and I truly appreciate it.
