About Me

Here are some basic stats on me. I was born on Tuesday, December 18, 2007 at 3:35 PM. At that time I weighed 7lbs 2oz and was 20in long, although I have been growing like a weed ever since. I came nineteen days early (I was expected January 7, 2008), so I surprised my parents a bit, but I am now here to stay.

My parents are Annie and Eli and they are both super cool. They tell me that they chose the name Maya because it is short and sweet, but also because they consider it a wordly name. Although it is a contemporary Hebrew name (Maya spelled in Hebrew is מאיה), it also is used in a range of cultures such as Hindi, Japanese, and Spanish-speaking ones. You can read more about the name Maya.

It is also fun to note others who were born on the same day as me (Brad Pitt and I, we have a connection).

Hailey Silk

I am now a big sister. My sister, Hailey Erin Silk, was born Saturday, September 25, 2010 at 8:41 AM. Her own stats are pretty impressive. Unlike me, Hailey was born a week late (she was expected September 19, 2010) and weighed in at a very healthy 8lbs 12oz and was 20in long.

My parents are a little less clear why they chose the name Hailey. You can read more about the name Hailey, but they tell me it wasn't a consensus pick. Rather, it was just a fun and cute name that my mom happened to like a lot.

It is also fun to note others who were born on the same day as Hailey. Some notable ones are Will Smith and Scottie Pippen (who my dad really likes).
