the most beautiful boy in the world

little charlie harper. the most beautiful boy in the world. 4kgs (yes, almost 9 pounds) & 51.5 cms long, he arrived last monday the 23rd of august. i tell you, giving birth makes you feel like you can do anything. it's as amazing as everyone goes on about and i say that even after having to have emergency surgery 12 hours later for unexpected blood loss. we brought little charlie home on saturday morning to his big sister cheering "bay-bee, bay-bee!".. so far, so good, as far as mirka accepting little charlie as part of her world. the husband said it was one of the best moments of his life when his gracie girl met her little brother for the first time while he was only a day old.. you should have seen her eyes open wide in amazement & stretch out her hand to pat him ever so gently. apart from the 3 hourly feeding cycle & the disrupted sleep that comes with it, little charlie is a very easy baby. just the way i like 'em. we had all 4 of us in bed yesterday morning & the husband and i had to pinch ourselves that we were a happy little family of 4 now. love.

  6. oh la la, quel beau bébé! He looks so peaceful in this photo. Congratulations Captain for giving birth to 4kg of joy!. Enjoy these magical moments with your little family. I keep the fondest memories of the first weeks of our little L's life. C- x
    ps: I love the choice of name. I wanted to call our son Charlie but it was vetoed by my other half.
