Baby G G

She's up in our room now, doing great.  We are in awe.  We spent a lovely shabbat, sleeping and feeding, and our two and half hours of completely awake presence.  It's amazing to see the changes she's going through, even though she's less than 48 hours old.  But here she is, totally beautiful, and already willful!


As for a name, people have been asking.  But we Jews are nuts.  We are going to wait to introduce her formally to the community in a naming, hopefully in NY at the beginning of December, and then she will be know as...(Don't worry, we're not going to hyphenate our last names.  That would be cruel.)

  2. Whatever her name is she's beautiful and you must be so happy she's finally arrived! Bill and I have a similar situation with our last names and hyphenating...Rigg and Markevitch don't exactly go well together but we are still figuring that out. We need a baby first. Have fun with baby GG!

  13. Well, yet another OMG to the list. She is stunning--so alert, so open to the world already. Tonight MUSE sang "Everything Possible" and I was a soggy mess thinking of your daughter. I love calling her GiGi! That's perfect. We wish you joy, wonder, some sleep, and lots o love. She is already a blessing to her avot, may she be a blessing to all of us.
