I make no apologies for this upload. I know it is not a great photo, but to me it is the most special one I have ever taken.

This is my wife Elisabetta and new arrival Jake, who was born at 0:58 this morning (23/12/2006).

I am not after clicks for it, but I am sure you will not begrudge me recording this moment in my PF.

This is a very good candid. You've captured your wife's look at the beautiful boy in a way that is very pure and original -- beyond your regular cliché of newborn happiness. Congratulations to you and your wife. I wish Jake a wonderful life. Regards, Bert

Thank you all so much for your very kind words.

It has been an amazing couple of days and it has still not really sunk in, but we sure are enjoying this Christmas.

Thanks again, it is incredibly touching to be on the receiving end of such warm wishes.
