Welcome home, little birdie

Maeby Rue Grace Becker
“Babies are soft. Anyone looking at them can see the tender, fragile skin and know it for the rose-leaf softness that invites a finger’s touch. But when you live with them and love them, you feel the softness going inward, the round-cheeked flesh wobbly as custard, the boneless splay of the tiny hands. Their joints are melted rubber, and even when you kiss them hard, in the passion of loving their existence, your lips sink down and seem never to find bone. Holding them against you, they melt and mold, as though they might at any moment flow back into your body. But from the very start, there is that small streak of steel within each child. That thing that says “I am,” and forms the core of personality.” 
~ Diana Gabaldon

  1. Shes so perfect! I didn't know you added Grace to her name. That is one of my favorite names! How perfect for this little gem of a baby:) Looking forward to our visit! Love you guys, C


  2. C, We even considered naming her Grace (I think I told you that a while back) but we couldn't imagine her not being Maeby. After meeting here, she is our Maeby for sure. So we decided to just add it to her middle name… The only hard part was that I wanted to keep adding more and more middle names :) Glad you like it. CAN'T WAIT till you guys get here!
