New kid in town

Last Tuesday the wife gave birth to our 2nd child, a girl this time. The name is Lena and both are doing well. As the boy she came to the world after a caesarean, which makes the dad is a bit more involved in changing diapers at the moment.

Beer for everyone!

Yes, they do grow up soon. It will seem slow at first but accelerates rapidly after 10 years or so when they start acting like teens. Then just tell them to get jobs while they still know everything.

Hi Michiel,

Huge congrats!

He has 2 months now.
He can see and hear right, now, so he is starting to interact with parents, and really smiling and playing. He wants to touch and explore diferent objects, with colours and textures...
The movements are more controled, soon he will be able to reach objects, then put them in the mouth and throw away... tongue sticking out smiley
Next month he will lift his head and hold for a moment, as well as pick objects and hold them, it is quite an accomplishment.

Mostly, he will start to sleep more time in a row, letting the parents rest a bit. Not the entire night, yet.

Enjoy!

Well, he's a she! She lets us sleep all night since her 6th week, good girl! She smiles a lot when you give her attention and knows how to cry for it (quite a different cry, sounds more like a cat). She's exploring and holding our hands and when she doesn't want to, she pushes them away. If you take her hands, she's trying to sit up. She eats well, she's a little fatty, a little Bibendum, just as my sister was.

Luckily, her brother likes her, wants to kiss and cuddle all the time.

Well done!
thumbs up

What kind of society we are creating, most young adults can't have children of their own, most of the older can't have a confortable life anymore.

My bad, you wrote above she was named "Lena".
Love the name.
15 in the future, picture yourself with a shotgun at the window, and a boy running in "zig-zag" with the head low.

Oh yeah! I'll scare them to death.

My father in law is always in for a little joke (just as I am), when my wife's sister presented her boyfriend, he got a tea for a drink. For the 2nd cup, he carelessly said the tea-bag could easily be used once more. The poor boy didn't date to ask for a new one and just put it in his cup... I guess I'll be a little something like him...
