Someone wrote that they'd checked my blog wondering if I'd posted any pics of the baby, or mentioned a name at least. 

I'm not one for birth announcements or formalities of really any kind, but on the other hand I don't want to go so far in the other direction so as to become irritatingly abstruse. The baby's name is Petra Miriam, our paternal grandmothers' names, a sort of counterpoint to Wally's namesakes (William Waldemar, maternal grandfathers). She looks identical to how Wally looked at that age, which is in turn identical to how Alex looked. Here are Wally and Petra together, on the day she was born.
