May I introduce to you: Ruben

Well, here he is... Peter and Nic meet their new brother Ruben for the first time. Ruben is born on wednesday afternoon at 5.39 pm and weighted 3575 g and is 51,5 cm.
Everything went very well and there were no complications, so everything is well with us. The boys were a bit dissapointed that they didn´t get a little sister, but also like their little brother.
This is Ruben on a a quilt that I made earlier and I think they are great boy colors. I also am making on with a dutch theme, red and blue to match Ruben´s nursery.
Yesterday, all the new mums on the maternity ward of the hospital got a piece of cake with the name of their baby. A very nice gesture of the hospital, espcially since they keep you on a low sugar diet in hospital.
So yesterday the doctor told us that we could go home today, but this afternoon the pediatrician thought that Ruben was to ´yellowish´ and wanted him under the lamps. SO They did a blood check, but everything was fine and we could leave hospital around 4.00 pm. So we are very glad to be back home, even though I could craft very well in hospital, but I am also very glad to be back home with my ´men´.


  1. Congratulations on the birth of Ruben! Nice name, was also on our list, but we had two girls.... Enjoy this precious time.

  2. CONGRATULATIONS Margy and family :)

    And welcome to the world little Ruben. He's a little cutie for sure, and I love his name.

    Now I can think about a little something baby boy related to go along with your Russian Doll swap item :)

    Glad all went well.


  3. Congratulations Margy! He is soo sweet. I love the name too!
