Andy and I welcomed our first child, Dora Joan, on December 15, 2012. She’s absolutely amazing. As you might expect, my world has been very much taken up with baby stuff lately. I’ll be on maternity leave until UCLA’s next quarter begins on April 1. I hope you’ll understand if I’m not great about getting back to correspondents right away.
Dora’s namesakes are her great grandmothers, whom we loved very much: Dora Goldstein and Joan Hildebrant.
