One month

Hi all,

Nathan is now more than one month old and is growing like cabbage. A few weeks ago his grandparents form the Netherlands visited us and we had a great time together. The pictures can be found here.

He is now skipping one meal and pamper during the night so we finally have a little more rest :) During the day he is now very busy with either crying or looking\fooling around so he certainly keeps us busy.
One of the few moments of rest is in the evening as at 19:00, BATH TIME. He likes it very much and after his bath and a bottle of milk he sleeps like a rose. I have put some pictures online.

We are now arranging his baptism (it will be at the second day of Easter) and his passport which is not as easy as we expected. You get one baby of 3.5 kg and 10 kg of paper work for free :-p
The coming period we will thus be very busy but I am sure that we will update the website soon so stay tuned!

All the best,
Marc, Magda and Nathan

One week message

Nathan is now a little over a week old and we three slowly get used to each other. Magda is recovering good and tomorrow we will go outside with Nathan for the first time. Our small boy drinks milk and tea like crazy and if he does not get what he wants he starts to “practise his lungs”.

Four days ago he opened his eyes, and, after leaving an important message to the wolrld, closed them again. Luckily papa was able to record Nathan’s opinion about Life, the Universe and Everything:

Furthermore I took some more pictures which can be found in Nathan’s Corner.
I am sure more pictures will be added regularly so don’t forget to check now and then :)

Cycle the world, Marc, Magda and Nathan

A baby, hooray!!

Hi all,

Sorry for the lack of updates (once again). The last months were very hectic with both work and arranging things for the baby.

We just got the nappies the day before yesterday and yesterday we had a biiiig surprise:
Our baby Nathan decided that it was time for him to be born!! We had expected him two weeks later but I think he was getting bored and wanted to see something of the world, just like his parents.

So on February 3r, 2011 at 14:30 Nathan set foot on earth :-) He is a healthy boy and weights a little more than 3.5Kg. All bits are attached and hearing the amount of noise he can make his lungs are strong, too. Perfect for cycling ;-)
I created a special place for him on this website. It is called Nathan’s Corner and you can find all his pictures there.

Magda is currently with Nathan in the hospital where she is recovering.
I expect them both home within a few days. Then it will be the “nappy-weeks” for us so it will be a hectic but also a beautiful time.

The first month we will take it easy but w are already planning to buy a baby-trailer for behind the bicycle so we can go for short tours when Nathan is older. Currently we are thinking of buying a Chariot or a Burley D’Lite.

I am sure we will have lot’s of adventures together on our coming journeys over the world and through life so stay tuned!
