A quick post and birth announcement, much delayed. Echo Lark Callahan was brought into this world on September 20th with some coaxing, cajoling, and prodding. When that didn't work, we resorted finally to inducement and vacuum suction. At 10 lbs, 6 oz and 22.25", she was no lightweight and is looking about four months old now. Throwing is still not an option, for numerous reasons biological, logistical, and meteorological, but things are slowly being listed once again on etsy. Hooray! And, maybe, painting can start again after the holidays. Once Echo starts having a normal bedtime (other than the newborn standard of eleven o'clock), it should get easier. One would hope! Right now, I'm just looking forward to that time when a little normalcy kicks in, which shouldn't be too long. Echo is a very easy baby, sweet natured and mellow, and has settled right into the family without much fuss or upheaval. Life is happy. And so is Echo.
