I am interrupting my posts on Germany to announce the birth of my Brother's baby yesterday. Baby Jacques Ryan was born at 16:00 on Sunday, 24 May 2009.
So here is the catch. Little Jacques Ryan decided to make his arrival known right in the middle of the stork party at 6 weeks premature... with dad 400 km away on business. My Boet got the call just as he was settling into his guest house in Mossel Bay and was only due back on Thursday. He jumped into his car and got to the hospital at 9 last night. 4 hours post birth.
