    Belated: Pyrus Nikolai is here!

    Joyously announcing the birth of our son, Pyrus Nikolai. He was born on 12/15/12 at 2:27 AM. He weighed 7 lbs 11 oz and was 19.5 inches long.

    Our little Christmas baby has a festive name as Pyrus is the Greek name for a pear tree and I went into labor on the 13th of the month (the 1st day of Christmas). Nikolai comes from my Russian paternal family.

    We are elated to be celebrating his birthday! He is welcomed by his 18 month old sister, Juniper Teagan.

    Congratulations, and thanks for the cute picture! When I saw the name Pyrus, I immediately thought of the Greek pyr, "fire," as in the word pyre. So then I had to go dig in my dictionaries to see if by any chance pyrus, "pear tree," is related to pyr, "fire." It is not. Apparently pyrus comes from the Latin pirum, "pear-tree," which is related to the Greek apion, "pear."
    Sorry for the digression, but thanks indirectly for the etymology lesson! Pyrus Nikolai is handsome, unusual but certainly wearable, and I love the subtle botanical connection between Juniper and Pyrus.
    Best wishes!
