This bundle of joy, immovable as the mountains and implacable as the tides, is Nadya.
Funny story about Nadya. One day, my husband related to me a story of his day at work. He’d mentioned to a coworker that our eldest cat is named Boria, which is the diminutive for Boris. My husband wished that we could have named our next cat Natasha, so that we’d have Boris and Natasha, like in the old Bullwinkle cartoons.
“Honey, Nadya is the diminutive for Natasha.”
