Baby Nya | Meet Our Little Girl

On May 22nd, at 8:30am, we welcomed our beautiful daughter into this world. She was 2lbs smaller than her big brothers at 7lbs 14oz, but she was just as long (21.5"). We are so incredibly thankful for this healthy baby girl and are savouring every minute with her. Her big brothers think she is the cutest thing around and I agree:) Her name is Nya Greta Chapman. Nya is a Swahili name that means `Purpose'. Greta was my mom's name (she passed away 6 years ago).

In about one month we will return to our regular photo sessions but in the meantime, we will be taking just a `few' photos of our beautiful family. Gary and I took some time this weekend to take some photos of Nya with each of us. It is kind of exhausting attempting your own newborn photos, and there was really no way we could get a decent full family photo, but that will happen in just a few months:) Also, we had the big boys running around the whole time which wasn't ideal...oh well, we got some good ones I think!

She is sleeping in almost all of these photos (the first two taken at 4 days old, the rest taken at 10 days of age) but soon I will show you some photos of her beautiful blue eyes. So far she is a pretty laid back little girl and we are loving being a family of 5!

Enjoy!


{I know all the pictures below are sort of the same but I love them:)}




{Kai wanted a photo with his baby sister. He really, really loves her. I also love Kai's freckles in this photo.}


{I love the daddy and daughter pictures below.}


So, now you have met baby Nya. Isn't she cute?! I think so:)
Love, One Happy Momma.
