Congratulations!!! I wish I could be there to help you and love on your new little precious one! What does her name mean? Is the "y' pronounced with a long e sound like the Greek word? We miss you guys!
Love, Krista Padgett

Duke said...

That's correct.

Miss you guys too.
Anna said that you would love how much hair she has.

Alice said...

What a blessing for you all. Of course, we love Kyrie's name and will think of her whenever we do the Kryie Elesion at Christ Church when we have the opportunity to go. Christ have mercy on all the Leiningers. The Rogers Family

(BTW, we should be up Michigan way more often after June 16. Alex is moving to Dearborn to take a position with the Ford Technical Call Center. Maybe we can get over to see you all and take a tractor ride!)

I thought we decided you would name her after Greg's grandpa or some random kitchen appliance...oh well, maybe next time.

maggie said...

oh my goodness! she is absolutely stunning( and, anna, you are beautiful as always). They make quite the pair, jason. I cannot wait to meet her in person ... wow. kyrie, you are precious. welcome.

...I liked greg's grandpa's name though... she's cute enough. totally could have pulled it off ; )

Kelly said...

She is adorable! We're so happy for you guys and can't wait to meet her sometime. :) Kelly (& Dwight & the kids of course!)

Melinda said...

so according to the picture, kyrie was born january 27, 2004 - are you sure anna didn't just steal a baby four years ago and take this picture? do you really have another baby? hmm...

Beth Wilmot said...

Alice - we would welcome a visit from your family. Asa has been reminding me of Ben a great deal the past several weeks. His hair has grown longer and he's got a loveable and spunky personality.

Mindy and Maggie - I can't remember Greg's grandpa's name . . . And the camera operator can't get everything right.

Kelly - take a vacation to the cold white north - today, May 28th, we awoke to a great white frost on the ground. So long to the tomato plants.

Beth & Jon - see you soon.
