Hello world...


I'm Matthias Gielis, 4 days old. I'm still with my mummy in the hospital, but I borrowed my daddies laptop to write my first blog post.

They say I'm tall for my weight; 50 cm for 2850 g. All midwifes are in love with me ;-) they pamper me a lot, which I enjoy so much.

My daddy is calling me "little prince" and to be honest I also feel like that. I enjoy being in this world as long as my mummy and daddy are with me.
He also told me; before I was here, he divided his time between my mummy and something called APEX, which I've no clue yet what it is. Now that I'm here he said, he's going to spent also a lot of time with me.
I've the feeling my daddy is really in love with me and can't leave me alone. I'm also very happy with my daddy, when I'm in his arms I'm so at ease and feel secure.

My mummy and daddy took some pictures of me... everybody wants to be on a picture with me! I feel like a little "superstar" ;-)

On my website you'll find some pictures, a little story (in Dutch) and my birth card, which my mummy made for me. Thanks mummy!

From time to time I'll write something on my daddies blog,

Congratulations to you and Kristel!

Please let him at least learn to walk before you start teaching him APEX ;)


p.s. I think you mean 2850g not 2850 kg ;)

Well done and congrats!!

I have to agree with John though, otherwise his first words are going to be 'shared components' instead of mummy or daddy!!!

We are expecting our little one in March so have it all to come!
