Congrats.  She is so alert in that first photo.  Was she early?  I'm surprised the Missus let you go hunting unless she was early.

translation:
We were elk hunting. Europeans might refer to them simply as deer, or red deer (a cousin of American/Canadian Elk), but we refer to deer as something else. I believe "elk" in Europe are what we call moose.

American/Canadian Elk:


American Deer (mule deer);


Males are called bulls and females cows. You can bring them in by calling like a cow. The cows come in to investigate and the bulls to get their harem built up. Bugling like a bull can bring in aggressive males looking to fight intruders in "their" territory.

We were mid way up a ridge on the edge of an aspen tree grove, w/ pine (evergreen) above us doing a cow calling setup (sitting, doing cow calls, hoping to bring in an elk) when we got the call about my wife. Ran down the ridge and up another to get back to the truck, a distance of about 2 miles (3.21km) and then had to drive out on a rough, mountain road a distance of about 5 miles (8km).

Here's a video which covers elk hunting, though they did a true back country backpack hunt whereas we drove in as far as possible and went out from a camp each day.

Congratulations on your little girl, Gardener! I've always liked the name Genevieve, too. :)

I've always like the name Genevieve too, which is why we named our daughter Genevieve.
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Beautiful name, beautiful baby. God bless your family.

She's perfect!!  I hope Mrs. Gardener is getting plenty of rest and cuddle time with little Miss Genevieve.  And, that they are recovering well and quickly.  What do the boys think of her?  (I've not read the whole thread, so sorry if you already answered that.)

The boys like her so far. Dominic is very into her and Eamon is curious and likes looking at her.

She is recovering fairly well.

Genevieve is latching, but has a tongue tie we need to get fixed, as she is not getting as much milk as she could, so my wife has to finish her with a bottle.

I hope Dominic doesn't teach her to ride bikes. Your house, bro.

Prayers for baby Genevieve's tongue tie. And that it gets resolved soon.  :pray3:
Prayers for Mommy & family.  :pray2:

We might be doing a post-baptismal party, finally -- having never done one. You're obviously invited (will get you info), and always invited, really.
