Kathryn and I are happy to announce the arrival of our daughter Dylan Aydlett Wick. Born on September 29, 2016 at 10:32 PM, Dylan weighed-in at 6 pounds 15 ounces and 19 inches long. She was delivered at the Maya Angelou Women's Health and Wellness Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Allow me to share with you some of the more frequently asked questions that have arisen since Dylan's birthday.

How did you choose her name? I thought Dylan was a boy's name...

Dylan is a Welsh name meaning "Daughter of the waves." Given that Kathryn and I like to think of our baby girl like a brave and wise sea turtle. we wanted her formal name to resonate. Plus, her ears look like sea shells!

Some other girls named Dylan include: Ralph Lauren's daughter, Dylan Lauren; Sean Penn and Robin Wright's daughter, Dylan Penn; and who can forget the Drew Barrymore character, Dylan Sanders, from Charlie's Angels?

Dylan's middle name, Aydlett, is Kathryn's mother's maiden

How was the birth?

The birth itself was truly a joyous occasion. The 32-hour medically-induced labor that preceded it was less so. However, all's well that ends well.

Do you have pictures?

Yes! Below are some of our favorites.

Our dear friends and family in far away places, thank you for reading this email, and for being in our lives. We look forward to introducing you to Dylan really soon.
