Not quite one day old

Infant Joy

"I have no name:
I am but two days old."
What shall I call thee?
"I happy am,
Joy is my name."
Sweet joy befall thee!

Pretty Joy!
Sweet Joy, but two days old.
Sweet Joy I call thee:
Thou dost smile,
I sing the while,
Sweet joy befall thee!

William Blake

But not even quite one day old yet. Waiting for a name...

Just beautiful, George. Just beautiful.

It is the most wonderful feeling! Congratulations George.

That baby is cute; can I suggest the name Georgina on the Nigella /+ skip a generation method?

She could make a lot of money being named like that.

Thank you, thank you. And she's cuter still in life (see later post). Georgina? I have a very nice niece called Giorgina, Italian style. Not after me, I suspect. Somehow I can't imagine myself dropping round to H and R's and saying: I have just had the most wonderful idea! Call her after me!

And Marlie rhymes with such a lot!

Congratulations, Mr Szirtes!
We are also just about to become a generation older... Heir on the way (a week to go).
