Octavia! Much, much more later. Uh, 8 lbs, I was a tad busy when they
announced the length.

She is amazing to me, and Jason has absolutely rocked. All is well.

    I have seen a lot of baby girls and (objectively speaking) I do believe this is by far the prettiest and most intelligent baby I have ever seen. Oh ya,… I forgot kind and wise.

    Ack, I left a comment somewhere around 6:30ish, but the Internet hobgoblins clearly ate it up. So I shall repeat and elaborate …

    Congratulations! Welcome, Octavia! If that’s not the name of either royalty or a woman warrior, I don’t know what is. Move over, Alanna — Octavia the Lioness is on the scene.

    Now, tell me you’ve assigned her an ISBN for her middle name. Please?

  21. Mary Roballo says:

    Holy holy. Look what happens when I stop paying attention for two seconds.

    Best Girl Baby Name Evar. (Would it have been Octavian for a lil’ guy?)

  35. sunday says:

    No, but Septimus might have been in the running. We were looking for a strong name. So many girl names are soft and pretty. We want a conquorer, like Jamie said.

  36. I’m totally late to the party, but wow, what a gal! She kinda looks like Meryl Streep.
