Baby Nia Makes Her Grand Entrance

Foreign Service LifeWashington, DC

We are delighted to announce that after a 14 hour labor, we welcomed a healthy baby girl into our family.  Her name is Nia Marisa Novak and she weighed in at 7 lbs 8 oz.  She was 20 inches in length and born at 12:39 PM in the afternoon on Saturday, October 22nd (we went into labor at 10 PM on her due date the 21st).  We are enjoying getting to know her, as she has quite the little personality!  Here are a few of the shots we captured during the birth.  Everyone in our family is exhausted but great!  Thanks for the love and support these last 9 months…
