I wrote this post yesterday, and wanted to add a bit about Gideon's disorder. Cri du Chat is French for "cry of the cat", and in fact, the most apparent indicator of Cri du Chat is that the baby has a soft, high pitched cry that sounds like a kitten. A clip of Gid's voice at one day old is linked right here. As you can imagine, the nurses had a hard time giving him shots, because his cry was just so heartbreaking. One day we were carrying Gid in his carseat into a doctor's appointment and an elderly lady stopped us and said, "It sounds like you've got a mad kitty in there!"
