On 12 August my brother and my sister-in-law got a son! He's very healthy, weighed almost 4 kilos at birth (!!), and he was almost 2 weeks late. Apparently mum's tummy was a comfy, comfy place, even despite the lack of leg room and despite the fact that he was sitting up-side-down for weeks on end.
His name is Jonathan.
Things have been a little nuts over here. My brother was spazzing out for the last few days before he became a dad, but that's understandable considering it's his first-born. My sister has been more vocal than ever about wanting kids of her own (and NOW, dangit!), which is just too hilarious not to mention. The family's been over, and basically it was all kind of crazy, but in a good way.
Also, my vacation is over, as you guys may have guessed from my sparser activity here. I'm working on two translations for articles, both of which have a strict deadline. So it's back to the day-and-night routine again, which is frankly getting very old very fast. Thankfully I just churned out the first translation. Hopefully the second one will go faster. Then it's back to the ol' thesis, because that was also still on the to-do-list, lest we forget.
Due two years ago ... Sigh.
How have you guys been?
