Allow Me to Introduce...

As the long, still silence may have already indicated, we have been quite busy welcoming our new "little one" into the world this past week. Pink or blue is no longer a question with us.

So perhaps it is time to do a proper introduction. On Thursday March 11, 2010 at 11:37 a.m. we finally met the addition to our family...

Ben-Jacob Manuel Richter

3805 g / 55 cm
8lbs 6 oz / 21.6 in

Now is that special time of getting to know one another... just the three of us.


  1. OOh! Congratulations to you and a warm welcome to your sweet little one! So good news! I'm so surprised! And I wish you a wonderful and happy beginning-time together!
    Best wishes from Uta!
