Announcing the arrival of Stefan Jou Armitage!

Maylin's little brother, Stefan, was born September 4, 2007, 8:59 a.m., in Berkeley, California, weighing in at 7 pounds, 8 ounces, and 20 inches long. The repeat caesarian section went very smoothly and I am recovering much more quickly than I did the first time around with Maylin. We are all at home now, with Stefan being an incredibly cute, incredibly good baby, and Maylin being a very excited big sister -- so eager to help whenever possible. She does have a tendency to run away when I announce the changing of a dirty diaper. I am totally exhausted from the round-the-clock nursings, but oh so happy. And it's so nice to see how John is so loving and tender with Stefan. We're all in love with the little guy. More photos to come!

Congratulations; all you kids! S. J. is a lucky boy walking in to an already awesome family.

I'm proposing a drum set for one of those first Christmas'. He's got rocker all over him.

The lovely caring sister image of Maylin is so fitting.
