Otis is born

Hello y'all. Here's a quick post to tell you all that we've got a son. The delivery was long and harder than with Isabel. Unfortunately it ended with a Cesarian, just like the first time. Ester will be in hospital with Otis until friday. Otis was born on monday 17:08 and weight 3965 grams and really a cute little thing.

Now for the name. As you all now we always have fun coming up with a few names. His full name is Otis Nemo Atreyu. We came with Otis after watching a documentary about soul music. So a you guessed, we got the name from Otis Redding. Nemo does not refer to that fish or captain Nemo of Jule Verne, but to Little Nemo in Slumberland, a very old comic from the early 1900s. It's about a boy that had the wildest dreams and it made a lasting impression on me. Atreyu is the hero in the book/movie The NeverEnding Story, which Ester read and watched. So Otis second and third name are from youthful heroes from our youth.
