Stella Electa Lodge hits the park in her bonnet.

Sarah and Andy Lodge welcomed a daughter, Stella Electa, at Aspen Valley Hospital on May 17. The Lodges and their yellow lab, Louise, are Aspen residents. Currently on maternity leave, Sarah will return as an English teacher at Aspen High School in January. Andy is a sales rep for Pinnacle Distributing. On Oct. 11, Stella traveled to Fairhaven, Mass, her father’s hometown, for her Christening. (And if her dad had his druthers, they also caught her first Red Sox game.)

Cory and Jeff Didier of Carbondale greeted Griffin Jeffery on May 22. Griff is destined to be a dirt pimp considering his parents are both Realtors in the valley. He loves spending time with the family dogs, Brady and Lucy, swinging at the park, and going to music class on Wednesdays with other babies. He recently started eating real food and especially loves apples, pears, carrots and sweet potatoes. “He’s a very observant little boy, very laid back, easy going … luckily he got Jeff’s personality,” says his mother.

Aspen residents Jeremy Barbin and Lisa Turchiarelli Barbin had a bambina, Lily Snow, at 1:52 a.m. on May 30. She was given her middle name for a few reasons explained her mother ” “Snow is a family name, it was such a big snow year when she was cookin’, and of course, skiing is Daddy’s favorite pastime.”

Lisa is a Realtor with Whitman Fine Properties and Jeremy recently joined Gallagher Sharp West, a marketing and creative services firm in Aspen. Carly, the family labrador, loves having a baby in the house.

Chris and Jessica Connolly of Basalt were blessed with the arrival of Kelan Christopher on July 20. The name Kelan, which rhymes with Helen, hails from Ireland just like Kelan’s dad. “We poured through many baby books looking for the perfect name,” noted Jessica. “Kelan means little warrior and having a difficult pregnancy I thought the name would be perfect for our little boy.” Chris is self-employed and Jessica is a full-time mom caring for Kelan and their Siberian Husky named Aspen.

Congratulations to all of the happy families!
