    Yay, pictures!

    Less than a week old, and she’s already: got an enviable collection of high-tech toys, stubbed her toe, perfected the evil eye.

    Yes, she’ll fit right in.

  2. deb

    She is heart-meltingly beautiful. Also, omg little toque. <3

  3. Christian Muise

    Congrats! You must be so stoked…

  4. Mike Beltzner

    Is there a little toque store where one buys these things?

    (She’s gorgeous.)

  5. Nino D'Aversa

    These are amazing pictures.

    Dude, it’s like Spring and stuff…I know you’re in the Frozen Wastes and all, but still…winter wear inside?

    All kidding aside, if you’re posting pictures, normalcy is is either restored or close, and this is a good thing.

    Shovel, shotgun, and a threatening look…you have about 14 years to acquire these.

    Awwwww! Look at all that hair!! Ernie’s hair was like that – thick and dark and sticky-uppy and so very pettable.

    Obviously, I very much approve of Miss Maya’s middle name.

  8. Zeynep

    The little eyes and the little fist and the little toes and the little hair and… aw. Welcome, Maya.

    Beautiful. Love her little lips! And glad to see Arlene up(ish) and cuddling little Maya.

  11. Kate Nepveu

    Yay, baby. She’s adorable.

    (And I did not expect to get nostalgic over wrinkled soon-to-peel skin on baby feet, of all things. Sheesh.)
