A New Friend!

I have no details about this, but I have good news: we have a new friend! A boy, named Grant, made whole and new by my friends Katy and Darrin. He weighs 8 lbs.

I am thrilled about this for all the reasons you might expect, but also because I had never before realized that the name "Grant" falls into a name category which, as a big nerdy nerd, I love: the name that is both a verb and a noun (two other examples being "Mark" and "Will"). As both a noun and a verb, "Grant" means something good and welcome and generous, and I am just so glad that I will get to know for always this new Grant in my life.
