My new little cousin!

Oh wow!!! He's here, and I was right, she was having a boy (that's the third right baby I've predicted in recent times, so maybe it's all coming back to me :D)!

He was born early Sunday morning (Icelandic time - that would be a Monday baby here, but well, they don't go by this time, do they, so he was born on the 26th of March)... He was born at 4.50am, weighed 4140gr, and measure 53cm.

He's a little blondie (of course, they all are up that way)... He has the same head shape as Bryn, which surprises me because I thought Bryn looked most like my dad's side of the family but my aunty Helga is my mum's youngest sister (and sibling for that matter)... In the picture above you see my aunt with her older daughter Bylgja, who is 13, holding The Baby (Helga has one other daughter Heiddis, who is 10, I think).

In Iceland the baby's name isn't made public until his Christening which happens some time in his first three months of life - so we may not have a name until June!!! Helga is about 5 years older than me, so I've always felt she (and my other aunties who are 7 and 8 years older) is more like a sister to me - She was the one who introduced me to George Michael, hahaha! (Oh and she once had a boyfriend by the name of Brynjar, too...) It's funny to think I have a little cousin who is 34 years younger than me! Ooooh, I'm very homesick for Iceland now, I would love for Bryn and this baby to be able to grow up together, oh well...

Til Hamingju Helga min!

Gorgeous baby Sif, you should be a proud aunt! And Erik is such a cutie with his missing tooth - what a co-incidence, cause Hamish just lost a tooth today! His mouth is absolutely full of gaps LOL!

And like your new colors on your blog!

Oh wow, he'll like hearing about Hamish loosing a tooth on the same day...

Actually, Erik already has a new loose tooth, it is a big upper front tooth, diagonally across from the one he lost today - that should make his smile interesting - wonder if he'll loose it before our trip to Adelaide, if he looses it over there, I have a feeling the SA toothfairy will be a little more generous than the VIC toothfairy and might even drop him a fiver...
