Wow, that is really, really neat. Sometimes I just have to reel at the amazing things we can do with technology when we choose to.

She's beautiful already.

And good luck with the name picking. It can be a never ending rabbit hole sometimes because it seems like you never run out of ideas, and neither do any of the friends and relatives. When we knew we were having twins, but weren't sure of their gender we had novel length lists of names. I always did like Hayley (like Hayley Mills) but we realized it was becoming this stupid "in" name because Eminem's daughter bears that name, and he's classless enough to rap about her to the whole world. My B-choice was (and is) Esperaza. I love that name.

I'm sure whatever you pick will be just perfect, and will suit her well :)

OMG K, she's already gorgeous. That image makes me want another one. My son looked like a blob in his sonogram.

SO, I take it from the messages that it's a girl?? Congrats!

And, you got to meet Auntie Peej also? Gosh I would love to meet you two.

As someone who has valued K's friendship for over a decade, I have to take a moment to tell her publicly how much I appreciate her. Kris, you are one of the few people I know who brings laser sharp intellect, humor born of honesty and keen and creative observation, and commitment to social justice together without being cynical. Your warmth and personal exploration are STILL an inspiration to me. Just finished reading almost all your blogs, many for a second time. Shared a bunch with Ryan. I don't tell you enough how much I value your friendship and your courage to grow.

In the spirit of adding something that touched me recently, I had a chance to meet the woman behind a film called "Side Effects." She made a powerful and funny story about a former drug rep (herself) who decided she was working in an insane industry. And, like you, she decided to do something about it by sharing her story. Check out the site at She'll rock your world, and maybe together some of us can help her shift the whole, dang healthcare ball of wax toward greater health and integrity. Have fun.
Love ya. Keep it up! M
