The attending midwife inquired from my wife what will be the name of our daughter. She didn't right away give her a name, instead she waited for me for I was in the plaza, which is just a stone-throw away from the center, taking my round of brisk walking exercise which I used to do it every early in the morning.
When I got back, my wife told me about it. I didn't have to think on what name to give our 3rd child. I told her right away that the name should be Genevieve Aura. My wife just grinned, didn't bother to ask why.
But earlier when I saw our child in one of the cribs at the nursery room, I was amused of her stature and look for she's a cute, lovely child. Since we already have our two kids, a boy and a girl, my wife and I were expecting that we would have another boy whom we are desirous to have. That's our expectation, but we were wrong.
Well, a child with a girl's gene, I thought. So I would rather call her Genevieve, combination of Gene and Eve as her first name.
