Bienvenue!

By Ann | September 8, 2013

Lucy 1

We are thrilled to welcome a daughter, born last Monday in New York. Her name is Lutetia Rose and we call her Lucy.

Lutetia is the ancient Roman name for Paris and we hope she’ll love her namesake city as much as we do.

We got home from the hospital on Wednesday and the days have been a blur of excitement, love, fatigue, insomnia (hormones!), and gas. I never thought infant gas would consume so many of my thoughts. But Lucy is very, very sweet and she and I are learning more about each other ever day.

Thank you so much for your kind wishes. Here’s to new adventures!

xoxo

    I sent my congrats on Facebook but can I just say how much I LOVE the name you chose. She looks like a Parisian girl at heart, already, with her chic bonnet and wrap. Happy times!

    Oh Ann, how exciting to see a picture of her (with her eyes open!). She has that look that says; this is my first posting on my mother’s blog. It doesn’t look like it’s going to be my last. Time to get an agent. Hope you are managing some sort of sleep between the gas attacks.

    Her eyes are so bright! Her name is an education for me, too…I had no idea about the old Roman name and Lucy is one of my favorite nicknames.
