a new family member

Last night at 10.30 p.m. our new nephew and cousin was born. His parents gave him the name Tijn. Mother, child and father are doing well. Of course we went over to see him and he was worth the 2 hour drive! Such a cute, perfect little boy!

For the non-dutch readers, the first picture shows a “beschuit met muisjes” . It’s a typical dutch tradtion to serve beschuit met muisjes to the visitors after a baby is born. It’s a kind of toast and the muisjes are some kind of tiny sugar balls filled with aniseed. When the baby is a girl the muisjes are white and pink. They are delicious!
I knew that it would be a boy so I made a little photo flip album for the first pictures using the colors of his room:

Have a great week! Hope you all find some time to join yesterdays challenges! Especially the digi one, I really need a new banner :)

Congrats Birgit! What a beautiful baby boy.
My mother in law serves something that looks like those to the kids when we visit but she calls them Rusks? and she puts Hagels (choc sprinkles) on them. I love the little album.
