Macaiah Ann Marquardt- It means "Who is like God?" It is pronounced "mah-KAI-yah." "Macaiah" is derived from "Micah" and can be spelled several ways including "Michaiah." We thought the "ac" looked more femenine. "Ann" is short for "Hanna" and means "Grace." Also, Tessa's middle name is "Ann" and also Emmalie's middle name is "Grace!" So, we thought it was very fitting since no one is perfect like God and we all need grace. And it's a beautiful name! Macaiah and Emmalie also have several aunts that have or had the middle name "Ann."
My teammate and brother, Joey Villaseñor, is fighting "Jacare" tonight. Wish him luck. We are headed over to coach Leister's house to have dinner and watch the fights. Shane and Lani Carwin will meet us over there too. This picture is from last night. Emmy had a sleep over with her neighborhood friends. Crazy kids!
