    oh pache, what is there to say that hasn’t already been said? that morning at betsy’s feels so long ago, and yet like yesterday. those little seedlings inside us, our bellies not yet revealing…we were giddy, almost disbelieving. and then the months tumbled on…and now here we are–you with your lyra grace and me with our mystery baby due any moment. what a joy to share baby-growing and baby-having with you. and what a joy to meet lyra, my favorite days-old chunky little latina…

  40. Becky Says:

    you have been in my thoughts and prayers since I saw you last week. and now here she is…so beautiful, like the rest of her sweet family, (esp. her mama). 🙂 I made some lentil soup and wish I could bring it to you! We are sharing your joy here. Get some rest, Pache, and I hope to see you ALL again soon and welcome sweet Lyra Grace!

  41. synge Says:

    she is pure love! how beautiful. my heart is with you, many blessings to you and sweet sweet lyra grace!

  42. Lyra Grace Christianson Says:

    I just wanted to say that it’s amazing that I saw this when I googled my own name! Not only was it surprising to me to see a baby with my first and middle name, but the fact that she was born the day before my 20th birthday floored me.

    She is beautiful! Congratulations.
