My beautiful son
Nathaniel Rhys Whitfield Thomas. Born 28 August at 2.55 am, weighing 8 pounds and 1 ounce, in perfect health.
Congratulations on the birth of your little astronaut, and may he have many successful journeys around the sun.
What a lovely name, and what a (don't lapse into precious-speak, don't lapse into precious-speak) astonishingly gorgeous young man!
Verification word (I kid you not): "geste". "Ooo's a wuvverly pwecious beau geste now? Oo is! Oo is!")
Congratulations - and just to repeat what others have said, he really is gorgeous ... and sweet and ...
Socks of Sullenness
How sweet! And I've always been a fan of Welsh names, so I heartily approve of that. I hope you're feeling well and getting rest.
Oh, he's beautiful!
Congratulations to all, and I hope you're doing well yourself.
And thanks for posting this only three days later, when I know you've got so much else to think about. But we couldn't help but wonder...I'm so glad all is well.
Took me forever and a day to figure out you probably weren't reading over at Slacktivist on account of the newborn baby, so I'll just say it here:
Well done Kit, Nathaniel and Gareth (and Mika, for whom this is no doubt a time of trial).
I congratulate the lad on looking less squished than most of his cohort- many newborns have sort of a "decomposing tomato" look going, but he's already rocking a nose. Good for you, Nathaniel- ahead of the game already.
OMG OMG OMG SQUEEEEEEEE!
It's a baby!
And it's Kit! Posting again!
Birth has happened! Life is beautiful! Congrats to Kit, congrats to Gareth, and a thousand times welcome to Nathaniel Rhys Whitfield Thomas!
(Spearmint, don't underestimate the value of posting on Slacktivist - I only knew to come here after seeing Rebecca's congrats in a recent thread.)
He looks beautiful. As he should, being woven from strands forged in the heart of the sun.
May that ancestor of his always light his steps.
Oh, and good job on doing the whole actual weaving-the-once-star-stuff, by the way. :P
(What I actually said when I saw the picture was unintelligible, but it translates into something like this:)That is one of the most beautiful newborns I've ever seen. How fortunate and blessed! Congratulations again!
I think I'm obliged to conclude that my niece was the single cutest baby in the world (and you're obliged to disagree), but he is a spectacularly cute baby.
Congratulations! He's gorgeous! Clearly his parents have excellent genes (but we knew that already). :)
Congratulations and best wishes to all of you. Nathaniel is adorable. And once you have time and energy to spare again, looking forward to welcoming you back to Slacktivist. You've been missed, Kit.
And just remember, quite often he'll be perfectly happy sucking your finger.
[Babies have a Need To Suck. I didn't know that at first, and it would have been really useful occasionally]
Congratulations, Kit and Gareth and Nathaniel!
My second son wanted me to say, "Hey that's my name", cool...Rhys.
Love and hugs, renniejoy
Congratulations, Kit, Gareth, and baby Nathaniel! I love the name, too. Evenstar would have been Nathaniel if she were a boy.
(someone finally posted a link on a comment thread I hadn't given up reading yet)
Congratulations! He's absolutely precious!
May your recovery go smoothly, sleep come easily and may Mika learn to share gracefully.
What a beautiful boy. Congratulations -- and Kit & Gareth, trust me when I tell you, enjoy everything -- even every dirty diaper and spit-up, because that will all be over far sooner than you can imagine, even though right now you probably think it never will. Just wish I was in the same place again myself. Welcome to the world, Nathaniel!
Congratulations, Kit! Welcome to our little planet, Nathaniel! I hope you enjoy your stay.Post a Comment
What a lovely little baby he is.
