S: Justin Emmett Markey...My Very First Day by Me...with a little help from Mammie
BC: Our Dear Baby Justin... What an incredible joy it is to be able to welcome you into our family. You are so very blessed to have such a fantastic Mommy & Daddy. Your big brother is a terrific guy & will be such a wonderful friend to you as you both grow up, he will show you the ropes as well as protect and keep you safe, and maybe knock you around a bit. We didn't get to meet you until later on in the day. We stopped at Ms. Deborah's to pick up your big brother. What fun that was to be with him when he saw you for the 1st time! There is no greater joy for Papa & I than to watch you & Jack grow up. I can't think of anything that makes us happier than spending time with all of our grandkids. You bring us more joy than we ever imagined even existed. God be with you little buddy. Please know that you can always count on us. You can come to us, for any reason. We are honored to be your grandparents, and because of you our hearts are full. We love you....Mammie & Papa P.S. You had many more visitors on your 1st day...but the Crazy Lady with the Camera got kicked out! | So, this is me on January 24th...I am almost 2 months old. Quite the looker, aren't I? Get ready world...I am liking this life thing, and I am here to stay! xoxoxoxo | Cute as a | and thats a good thing!

1: Yep...this is her. This is my mommy!!! Malia Akana Markey | M o m m y | As you can see, I am ready to meet my dad, big brother & the rest of my family. I am bursting to get out of here. Mommy is about to POP! Mostly, I just want my mommy to hold & snuggle with me! I love you mom, thanks for having me! | So...I am going to be born at Evergreen Hospital. My big brother, Jack was born there a long time ago. I hope I am easier on Mom than Jack was! | My Big Brother Jack How do you spell Jack? TROUBLE | My Dad, Josh. Geez, I wonder if I will have the same hair do as daddy?
2: So, here we are. This is so cool. I can't believe I finally got out of there! It was so cramped! | Hi Mommy...you are so beautiful, just as I imagined. Where's dad? | Oh...Hi daddy! I love your eyes, I can tell that you are so happy I am here!
3: So here we are, the Markeys. But, something is missing. I want to meet my big brother, Jack. | So...I am really anxious to meet my brother Jack. I need to have a chat with him about all the jumping around he did on my mommy when I was in her belly. I think we need to talk to our parents about getting him a trampoline. They don't call him Jumping Jack for nothing. I am excited & I can't wait to meet my, Bro! Note to self: Remember to thank God for my beautiful head of hair.
4: So, this is it! I am about to meet the big cheese a.k.a...Jack-Jack. I'm a little nervous. I wonder what he will think of me? Oh well...here goes. Hmmmm...He looks pretty nice. Man, why is he staring at me? Hasn't he ever seen a good looking newborn before? Now he is getting closer...oh NO, I think he is going to kiss me! Well I guess its ok, so far everyone else has. Mima will protect me!
5: It wasn't too bad, he didn't get too mushy on me!! It'll work, I think he accepts me. Unless he always kisses guys he doesn't know! In which case Dad & Mom need to have a chat with my big brother!! I wonder if I look like him? He is really handsome... but I'll never tell! | Meeting my big brother for the 1st time!
6: Wow, so far so good! This whole life thing is pretty neat. I got a really cool family! I think I am going to fit into...like an old glove. I am really glad I'm here! Life is Good!
7: Seriously...is there anyone more adorable than me? I'm thinking probably NOT! (Cool your jets & don't get your panties in a bunch big brother, you are pretty cute too! I'm just trying to get your goat!!!!) | J | U | S | T | I | N
8: We are all so happy that I am here! Mommy says she is never doing that again! Hmmm...We'll see, us guys might want a sister that we can terrorize!
9: My mommy loves Christmas & she is so happy that I am here in time to celebrate! So are Mammie & Mima! | Hey..... Mommy! Daddy! Do you think we can get a DOG? Jack told me to ask you but, he said to say that it is not his idea. He is waiting for the answer! WOOF! | To steal a phrase from my Mammie, "Mommy, your smile "melts my heart!"
10: So, I wonder how many other guys have to lay around buck naked with their bootie up in the air while a stranger is photographing them? I'll have to check & see if they did this to Jackson. | "Bootie,bootie bottie"...I heard all about that when I was in mommy's belly!
11: "What A Life Eating, Sleeping, Pooping, Playing... And Being Cute" This is easy for me, I can handle this gig. Nooooo problem!!! | Mommy's friend made this hat for me. Pretty cute, huh? I'm talk'in bout me, not the hat! | So they call this bright eyes & bushy tail. I wonder how long my tail is? All the longer to smack you with Jack! | J u s t i n M a r k e y
12: Good looking family, huh? Glad I came along to pretty things up! Next thing you know, I will be out there beautifying the whole neighborhood! Look out 7th Avenue. I have arrived. Fathers, keep your eyes on your daughters!! The Markey Boys own this block!!!!! Grrrrrr... | The Markey | Oh my gosh, can you believe this? Looks like Jackie Boy is getting jealous! Ha, well move over sucker...I gotta make up for lost time! | Aunt Sharon & Great Gramma Ida cam to visit & stare at me!
13: Hey! Who is in charge around here?? Can I get a pedicure????
14: A Baby Is A Bit Of Stardust Blown From Heaven Yeah, they got that right & I am quite the blessing! | So, this is Mammie. I know all about her. She is coo-coo for Coco Puffs, so she is already nuts about me. I have heard her sing her corny songs to Jack...poor guy! I wonder what she has stored up for me? Judging from the light bulbs flashing on my 1st day here...I had better brace myself. I love you, Mam...but BACK OFF. Let me breathe! And, please get that camera out of my face!!! Geezz! xoxo | Me & Mima. Lookie, I got her hooked already. That sure didn't take long! Man Mima, you are so much calmer & quieter than my other grandma. You are my Mommy"s mama so, that makes you #1 in my book. All & all I am one lucky guy. I have all these people hanging around here who want to hold me. I love you, Mima! I am going to have a lot of fun with you! | My daddy & his mommy staring at me. As Great Papa Emmett used to say, "KNOCK IT OFF!"
15: "A Baby's Love Is Best Of All" | Yo Jack, dude! I got my 1st pair of boxing gloves...put 'em up! Come on chicken boy, lets go a few rounds!!! | Hi Auntie...I know that you & Mommy are best friends. I will be seeing you & my cousins a lot. I already know some of your secrets with my mom. What out! xoxo
16: The Garden of Love...
17: Wow Mom, you & Daddy sure grow 'em good!
18: e | Isn't my Auntie so pretty? She is one hot mama! Just like MY mommy!
19: Remember...I did all this on my first day on earth. Yikes, I am only a few hours old and I already have memories, cool! | Papa Abdella...He is the "How you do'in," guy! | My Cousin Conner Kincaid | The guy in the red is my cousin Chasey. He & my brother are, LOUD! | Gee Wizz you guys, "PRIVACY PLEAE!" Get a room! (Thats a line from your book, MOM!)
