Like his older brother Kasper, my second son took his time before he decided it was time to add one to the world's population but: On Friday, March 7, around 10 in the evening, Emiel Oscar Boersma was born!
Shortly after the home-birth he and his mother had to be taken to hospital: Emiel was underweight and cold, Marijke had lost quite some blood. Emiel was placed in a small, heated bed, Marijke had a tube placed in her arm with some clear, salty fluid dripping in.
Thirty-six hours later, we welcomed them back in our house and they've been going strong ever since. Emiel is growing fast and Marijke has been spotted cycling outside!
The first pictures are up on Flickr, tagged with "emiel". I am sure many more will follow.
