    Martha Frances

    Martha Frances is here! She's named for my mother and grandfather, though the name didn't come to us till the very end of my pregnancy--my husband and I had a good sit-down and talked through what we really wanted in our child's name, and unfussy underused classic saints' names it was. We've been playing her all the great songs about Marthas by Tom Waits, Loudon Wainwright, the Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, etc, and collecting the George and Martha children's books.
