And her name is …

Yeah, so we took our time and left folks on the edge of their seats for a bit. But it’s now (almost) official: our newest daughter is Ludivine Mercedes Renaud.

We’ll call her Ludi for short. Her first name is from Yoli’s grandmother, who died at a rather young age. Mercedes is a Spanish name (deriving from mercy).

Jadzia warmed up rather nicely to her new sister. We made sure we spent time alone with her before bringing in the baby. I also prepped Jadzia before I took her to the hospital by showing the video of Yoli with Ludi.

You can see a bit of their interaction yourself in the very short movie below. It also shows Jadzia playing with her new friend Tori who came to visit.

To watch this movie, you need Apple’s QuickTime software installed on your computer.

    Dear Josh & Yoli,
    Congratulations for your new baby girl! She’s beautiful and seems she already is getting along great with her older sister ;o).
    We are doing very well also. I’m about 6 months pregnant now. Baby is very active and kicking a lot. With God’s help, if all goes well, we’ll have a little one sometimes around end of October – begining of November.
    Once again congratulations!
    Bebe, Dana & Rytis
