Hello Marlowe!

March 10, 2013 – tagged as baby

Allow me to introduce to the world, Marlowe Maxine McBride!


Marlowe was born in San Francisco, California at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) hospital at 12:23pm on Sunday, 10 March 2013 (10 + 3 = 13 … yay! A math trivia birthdate!). She weighed in at 7 pounds 7 ounces, and measured 21 inches in length.

Both Alicia and Marlowe are doing great and getting a lot of needed rest. Marlowe’s middle name is borrowed from my paternal grandmother. Her first name was her mom’s top pick and after witnessing the process of giving birth, mom had final decision rights on the name. Luckily, when we both gave our final suggestion on what her name should be around noon on the 11th (24 hours after her birth), we both agreed Marlowe matched her personality.

For those of you looking for pics, email me.

Congrats Mark & Alicia!!! I’m sure she will bring you lots of joy. I know all babies are beautiful but she is gorgeous!

Oh wow - what a cutie! After the how to destroy angels tweet I thought you would name her mariqueen (or maybe trent - but would make less sense) - I agree, Marlowe is much better. Congrats!!!

She really is a cutie and we are so very happy for you both! We echo others’ sentiments to enjoy every moment. Our “baby” Clara turns five on Wednesday and it seems like yesterday she was snuggled in that same blanket in the hospital (you think they would change the pattern now and then!). Get some rest and enjoy this wonderful time! And please do keep the pictures coming - she’s darling!

Ana Lucia • March 12, 2013

Is it only a week ? It seems like she has been with us for a longer time. The world became a brighter and more beautiful place when our little Marlowe arrived. She really is beautiful as is her name. Our family is so fortunate to have her and we all look foward to all the happy years ahead. Thank you Alicia and Mark for the joy you have given us. What a little love she is.

Mark and Alicia,

Congratulations! She is adorable. Wish you all the best as you transition into parenthood. You’ll both be great! And Mark, knowing that you are from Texas, I am assuming that you already promised lil’Marlowe a Pony! How could you not?! !

Marlowe is a charmer even in the pictures….so aware. I am so glad Mark’s parents can be there. I remember how I felt when you,my first grandchild, were born and how I enjoyed my first visit. So proud of you then and I still am. Love you all….
