Welcome Merric James Machak!

Posted by Kristin

Well, the second half of the PEC Create Baby project has officially arrived! Merric James arrived on Friday, January 4th at 10:57 a.m. He rolled in at 8 pounds, 2 ounces and stretched out to 21 inches long. Although, Laura may choose to use a different set of words to describe his entrance....

Merric James Machak.

Caleb, Laura and Merric are settling into their new life at home and mom and baby are doing great. It was so exciting to finally meet the little guy who was filling up Laura's belly for so many months and Callum was very happy to meet his new buddy.

Both PEC Babies are finally here!

Laura will share more details once she's a bit more settled in. For now, she's focusing on her little guy and all his cuteness. Welcome Merric- you've been long awaited!


  1. Congratulations Laura ...he is just adorable. God Bless.

    1. Thanks Ellen! I am totally loving every minute of Merric...

  2. We are expecing a Merric James in June :) I just googled his name to see if there were any others out there! How did you decide on the name if you don't mind me asking?

    1. OH wow, congratulations! We found the name Merric in a baby book and loved the meaning so much (Ruler of the Sea). James was my grandfather's name. We're really happy with it :)
