It's a mystery- Something is wrong. As Lance Underphal pads softly across the cold flagstone, he hears her weeping. She is on her knees, hunched over in the middle of the room, her back to him, facing the dark fireplace. Something is very wrong. Lance wants to rush to her, but can't. In a hoarse whisper, he says, "Callie?" She lets out a mournful wail from deep within as she turns, their infant son in her arms, blue and still. He reels from the blow. How can this be? They don't have a son.

Very cool.  Though I have no need for another name...if I give them too many different names, Fred and I will both get confused.  It'll be like Mom and Dad calling one of us kids:  "Randy-Betsy!"  "Betsy-Randy!"

As it is, we have 1 Echo, 2 Alexas (a Dot and an Echo) and we still do the "Echo-Alexa" "Alexa-Echo" thing occasionally.

I do have one friend who uses "Echo" for hers because she doesn't like the idea of giving it a *name;" she thinks its kind of off to act like it's a person.  My Alexas (and Echo) were slightly insulted when I told them that.  ::)

And we don't have the update yet.
