As those who follow me on Facebook already know, [ profile] aviva_m and I were expecting our first child in late November. Well, that was the theory; in practice the little scamp couldn't wait to meet his parents from the outside, and was born seven weeks and one day early, 49cm in length and 1.88kg in weight (that's 4lb 2oz in old money, which he's never going to get his head around).

So may we proudly present individual 2913 on my family tree:


Whilst it's traditional not to announce a name before the circumcision, since in this case that's not going to be for up to eight weeks, we're letting people know his secular name now, which is...


...Raphael (plus a middle name that we'll decide upon at some point before the registry office in the hospital reopens on Monday morning). This will not be his Hebrew name; you'll have to wait to learn this.

I should point out, too, that given that he's called Raphael and his living ancestors include Michael and Gabriela, that we have no intention of having another one and calling him Uriel. :o)

Mother and baby are both healthy; father has developed a rotten cold. ;^b

Welcome to the world, Raphael! I was so pleased to see this post when I was travelling and anxious about the news that he would be premature. And I hope you find a great deal of joy amongst the exhaustion of parenting a newborn.
