She has a name.

Her name is Marina Ruth. Marina is the combination of two of her great grandmother's names and Ruth is another great grandmother. Marina is a very popular name in Russia. It is an Italian name meaning "of the sea". That is fitting since she was born in a toilet. Yes, a toilet. Miranda's labor was very short and we barely arrived at the hospital in time. While trying to provide a urine sample, Miranda just had the baby right there in the bathroom.

Yesterday, as I was folding clothes on the washing machine, Kade walked up to the front of the clothes dryer and said "A, H, E, D, T, Y, V, another Y, U". (Heavy Duty) Not even two years old and he knows 17 of the 26 letters. He occasionally confuses the P and F.

He also knows his colors and is right 100% of the time if your ask him the color a red object - he immediately says "Red" no matter what.
