Announcing Benjamin Steven Maxwell!

It’s with great excitement we share the happy news of Benjamin Steven Maxwell’s safe arrival into the world Tuesday evening, at 9:45 p.m.

More later, but thank you so much for praying! We are delighted he is here, and Mommy and Baby are doing well. No NICU time for Benjamin! He weighed 8 pounds, 14 ounces, and isn’t his dark hair and chubby cheeks so totally adorable?

The kiddos got to meet him today!

“Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest
observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant
commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left,
that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.

Joshua 1:7

  1. Congratulations! Benjamin is absolutely adorable, and he is already blessed to have such a wonderful family who will raise him to know and love the Lord. I hope Melanie is doing well – did she have another c-section? Will be praying for her recovery.

    No c-section and no NICU stay!! Praise the Lord!!

    I’m so happy for Melanie that she was able to experience a natural birth at full time with a healthy baby!! Having their story in mind it’s even a bigger blessing!

  10. I kept logging on to see if the baby had been born yet and this morning I saw the fantastic news. He is absolutely beautiful. The rosy cheeks and dark hair. Happy to hear Melanie and Ben are doing well. Congratulations to the entire family!

  11. YES! Praise God, especially for no special needed care! Congratulations, everyone. He’s precious. Looking forward to more. What does Drew think of his new little brother? God bless, everyone. Melanie must be so happy.

    Love, Rebecca


    Drew just wants to hold him!

  12. Congratulations! What a blessing!
    I also noticed something 🙂 Girls: Abigail, Bethany and Christina. Their initials begin with A, B and C 🙂 And now Andrew and Banjamjn, A and B! Was that intentional?


    A and B girl names weren’t intentional to be alphabetical, but everyone called those two A and B. Then when they were expecting their third, we discussed how cute it would be to have, “A, B, and C,” but we were surprised when that’s what they did. Then they were very creative with Andrew’s name because he was named with the intention that his nickname would be Drew, making A, B, C, and D. Now they have what you described, and we are assuming the B was intentional to come after big brother A, but we haven’t asked that question yet.

  13. Oh he’s gorgeous! What a blessing! Congratulations to you all, way to go Melanie. This makes my heart so glad!

  14. Welcome Baby Benjamin! It is a joy to see Melanie surrounded by those five wonderful children, isn’t it?



  15. Welcome baby Benjamin and congratulations to Melanie and Nathan and all the Maxwell family! He’s got awesome hair!! Can’t wait for more photos!

  16. Thank you for taking the time to answer my question about the names. Such a sweet idea! 🙂 And I love all the names!
