One Week Ago...
Finn, Ace, Kai, Ike, and I welcomed Genevieve Elodie Camille Dillon into the world!
That's right---a girl. :) And she is AWESOME.
At birth she weighed 8 pounds, 4 ounces---my largest baby so far. After three super easy textbook deliveries (when my midwife delivered Kai she actually commented that it would be nice if they all went so smoothly), we got to experience some drama with this one, but luckily it seems she got all of that out of the way upon arrival and thus far, she's fairly chill.
We're still toying with what we're actually going to call her. I think Vivi suits her nicely. Finn goes back between Vivi, Viv, and Baby G. Ace calls her Genevieve (can I feed Genevieve? Can I hold Genevieve? Genevieve needs her paci!). Kai immediately wanted to call her Gigi. Ike typcally calls her "that baby." He's still not sure this was the best idea his father and I have ever had. ;)
I'll post her birth story on the announcements board eventually but you guys were so instrumental in helping us decide and this process was so much easier this go round! I am thankful for all of your help and suggestions!
FWIW, had she been a boy, we went in with either Gideon Raphael or Raphael Otto for our most likely boy choices, but I was 100% going to push for Raphael unless I looked at him and just could not deny he was a Gideon. I'm actually kind of glad I didn't have to make that choice. We love both names a lot.
Anyway---I'm recovering from the delivery and enjoying my newest little love. Life just could not be any better!
