Kathleen and Michael wrote in to the blog when they were expecting their third child: with two sons already, they were stuck for boys’ names.

As is becoming quite a pattern lately, they had a girl instead, and her name is


little sister to Alfie and Ned.

Congratulations to Kathleen and Michael on the birth of their daughter – Pearl June is one of the sweetest names I have heard, and makes a delightful addition to Alfie and Ned. If Pearl had been a boy, her name would have been Otis Arthur.
