Here comes Raphaël!

As of today, Raphaël gurgles, makes little grunting noises, and drinks baby bottles as if he were three days old!

He weighs 3.870 kilos, is 50-centimer tall, and is very, very fine.

His mother did worry us, but she’s OK now. I’ve just had her on the phone (11:00 PM), thanks to the hospital doctors.

And voilà, la vie est belle!

A few pictures

He’s already 20 minutes old!
Listen, kiddo, this logo is
Already lifting up his head!

    Not to sound like a grammar nazi, but the correct wording would have been "... drinks baby bottles as if he WERE three days old".
    I’m sure the scientific law stating that when correcting someone else’s typo (let’s be kind and call it that) one must inevitably make another mistake in one’s post will apply here, but I can’t find the mistake as of yet.

    Oh, and incidentally, kudos for the new brat :)

    Mummy looks exhausted. Take good care of them, lover boy. And congratulations for this mini-you now among us. I’m so, so happy for you mon ami. A little jealous too...

    Loads of kisses to your evergrowing family.

    So glad for you guys, congratulations to you and ’specially to the tired mom.

    I have no idea why I’m writing this in English, but it’s just as sincere anyway.

    Welcome Raphaël!

    Your pumping-mate ;-) ,

    My turn to try some ugly english, sorry for the mistakes it’s long time since i talk a little this strange langage.

    As it was said, take care of your fantastic wife, and of this beautiful little-you.

    I’m jealous too, i hope to have mine one day, maybe nearly..

    i think there are enough mistakes in this comment, so it is better to stop right now.

    and as it is said, CHEEEEEEEERS.
