When my sister Christina was pregnant in the spring she and I talked about names for their unborn baby. She rattled off many possibilities, and expressed some frustration–choosing a name isn’t easy and they were having an especially hard time landing on the perfect girl’s name, in case they had a girl. They had a girl. After hearing how the delivery went, how much the baby weighed, and what she looked like, I noticed Christina was leaving out a vital piece of information. “So, does she have a name?” I asked. After a long pause, she said, “Yes, we named her Vivian.” I believe my response was “SHUT UP!!!” I was so surprised. There was never any mention that ‘Vivian’ was even a consideration! Wow, I was, and still am so honoured to share the same name as my beautiful niece. Here’s introducing Vivian Adela (and her equally adorable big brother Marcos). These photos were taken just five days after Vivian was born. Check out all that hair! She’s a perfect little Monchhichi.
