A late-night discussion of baby names last night reminded us that we were doing the same thing three years ago to the day, unexpectedly needing a name right away for the baby we weren't expecting for three and a half more months. William Albert was named for his Grandpa Kenyon and his Great Grandpa Ganey, two great men with strong names to lend a tiny boy making a troubled entrance into the world. He took hold of that strength and made it his own, propelling him through a short but powerful life. Now that we know the power of a name, the choice is that much more difficult as we consider options for Will's next brother or sister. We'll look to Will for inspiration in this as in all that we do.

Happy Birthday, Will. Mom, Dad and Edward love you very much.

We think of Will a lot. And we always thought that was such a beautiful, totally fitting name for him -- he did have such a will to live. What a little fighter.
