It is "Kathryn Rose" after all. After all of our debating back and forth and finally settling on "Kathryn Grace" in the event of a girl-child. When she was born we kept calling her "Katie Rose" and then correcting ourselves. Eventually we gave up. She couldn't be anything other than Katie Rose. She looked like a little rose when she was born, all soft and pink with that adorable little pouty rosebud of a mouth. She still does. Apparently the consensus of family and friends favored "Rose" all along, anyway. Her patroness is still Our Lady, under the title of Mystical Rose/Our Lady of the Rosary, so I don't think She minded our last-minute change. :-)
After two weeks, Katie Rose and I are ready for the internet again. This time we were delayed by an irrascible router, general postpartum adjustments, and an ongoing adventure with retained placenta. Now I am on bedrest from said adventure, so I'll be free for blogging in the next couple of days if all goes well. Pray for my husband and me. All I have to do is stay in bed and wait and see what happens. Ryan has to do what I usually do! Now the little girl needs to be changed and nursed, so I'll leave you with that fascinating cliffhanger.
