Congratulations on a gorgeous baby, the end of your pregnancy, and a very cool name that is a fitting tribute to a great writer. He clearly has great writing in his blood from both sides. The piece from Serge was stunning.

And now, you deserve a big fat bottle of wine. All to yourself, if you like ;)

Cheers to Henry! Or Hank, which is great too. Some great Hanks out there...

February 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFunkyAmazon

Oh, he's lovely! And looks just like his big sister (last photo especially). Congratulations and much internetty-love to your growing family. Looking forward to hearing about life with two from both of you.

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterA.

Congrats!
Did you happen to get his name from the post where you asked for people's babies names or am I just being paranoid?
