TWO!! Getting bigger every day…
Lillian Arconati, daughter of Jonathan and Kelly Arconati, turned one-year-old today. She is getting to be such a big girl! A wonderfully funny moment came while she was eating her birthday cake slowly and daintily. Just in fun, her mother came over and pushed her hand gently all the way into the cake to really get her messy. Lillian apparently does not like her hands being covered in mush and cake icing and began to bawl –but only for a minute. It was too cute.

It was discovered via a search engine that Lillian, a recent addition to the Arconati Family, is not the first one to bear that name. Please take a moment and view the results at the St. Louis Public Library – Obituary Index for 1993. Search the page using your browser for the following entry:
ARCONATI, LILLIAN (nee Daigger) 11/1
The parents, Jon & Kelly have been interviewed and it sounds like this one is a simple and interesting coincidence. It should be noted that the new Mom & Dad are doing fine and adjusting well.
Finally, Ruby Herod was interviewed as well and it is possible that she knew the older Lillian, though it was not 100% clear at this time how she was related to us. More details will come later.

Though this is long overdue as a news posting, since almost everyone already knows, this needed to be posted here for anyone that missed it.
Last summer, the couple promised themselves that they would try again and thankfully, they are going to be blessed with a son this spring.
See Jim’s blog post for more information and to learn the name they have picked out.
