Mom: Erica Loren, 37

I will never forget calling my 91-year-old grandmother the morning after Mira's birth. Our baby had been born, and we were all doing great. I asked her if we could have her permission to use her middle name, Angelina, as the baby's middle name. Long pause on the other end of the phone, then sound of happy tears, and her answer: "If you really want to ...  I would love that." My beloved grandma passed away before Mira's first birthday, but I always take comfort in the fact that her beautiful name lives on.

Daughter: Mira, 3

I can't wait to see my baby brother. But, I don't want to see him come out of you. I'm just gonna go to my friend Meghan's house.
