it's a boy!

We are so thrilled to welcome our baby boy to our family!

Emry Isaiah Brams Davis
October 22, 2010
7 lbs 15 oz, 20.5 inches

Emry is a Welsh name that means "honorable" (Davis is a Welsh name). Isaiah is a name I love and also in honor of David Brower, Mikhail's mentor, who loved to quote from the Book of Isaiah. In the tradition of Mikhail's family, my last name is Emry's second middle name (we did this with Elan too - his name is Elan Joshua Brams Davis).

He came exactly on his due date, and three of his grandparents got to see his birth. I'll write the whole story of his birth at some point. It was a wild ride. What birth isn't? But really, it was pretty great. I feel soooo lucky for how the birth went, to have a healthy baby... and to not be pregnant anymore!

Elan is extremely excited about the baby. He wants to hold him, touch him, rock him in the swing.

And take him for rides around the hospital in his bassinet.

We're having a whole lot of fun around here.


  1. Congratulations Becca! He is beautiful. And I love the look on Elan's face in the first photo with Mikhail, as well as that last photo. It just completely captures his joy.

  2. yay!!!

    see you all in two days. Can't wait to hold the littlest guy.

  3. Rebecca, Emry is absolutely gorgeous. Big congrats and so glad everything went so well. The picture of Mikhail with Emry really made me laugh because Mikhail looks so happy, thrilled AND EXHAUSTED. So goes life with a newborn! Elan is VERY photogenic - so cute. (:

  4. Beautiful boy! Great name! Sending lots of love your way!....wish I could send some extra sleep for you too!

  5. Congratulations, Becca! He's beautiful!

  7. So excited dear daughter to see your Emry/Elan entries...wonderful pictures...wonderful experience for all those present!! Best of all...wonderful boys!! Mom

  8. love dinner conversation with Elan and yoga with Emry...having been present for many attempts at dinner with Elan, I can vouch for the authenticity of such a conversation...glad to hear Emry is making it to the yoga mat at an early age...maybe his flexibility will be better than his Nana's when he gets to be a Senior!! Can't figure out how to make this my comment and not Dad's...he'll have to do his own!!
