Goodbye miniatures...hello diapers!

Hello everyone,

It is with an insanely happy heart that I must tell you that I will not be working on miniatures for a while, because I will be busy changing diapers. Jo and I have a son.

We got a call one day at 1:30 in the afternoon saying there was a healthy baby boy waiting to come home with us. At 3:30 pm, we were holding him in our arms. We named him Vigo.




We got him when he was 16 and a half hours old. He is perfect and I am still in amazement at just how much I love him.

I thank you all for your incredible support and best wished through the years. It was a long and heartbreaking 7 year wait, In fact we were absolutely convinced the day would never come, but it did. I will keep on following your wonderful blogs to keep on being inspired, but I hope you understand if I will not be commenting much...at least for a while.

I send you all a great big hug,
Giac (the happiest man in the world)

  2. Ohhhhhhhh lieve Giac, HARTELIJK GEFELICITEERD, wat een geweldig bericht, na zoveel jaren wachten opeens toch een telefoontje te krijgen dat er een lief klein mensenkindje voor jullie was. Wat een PRACHTIG jongetje, en ook een prachtige naam, Vigo.
    Geniet volop samen met Jo van alle ontwikkelingen die jullie samen mee zullen gaan maken. Hoop ook dat jullie af en toe een post laten zien als Vigo gaat groeien, zodat we mee kunnen genieten van jullie geluk.

    Heel veel geluk voor jullie met dit prachtige kindje, lukt het al goed de luiers verwisselen ;-)

    veel liefs
    Josephine

  6. That is the most precious miniature that has ever come into your home. No greater treasure in the world. Of course he deserves all of the time and attention you can gift him with. It won't be long though before you will be making more miniatures and they will be toys for you new son. After all every prince needs a toy castle!

  8. Dear Giac and Jo, Congratulations!!!! I am so so happy that you finally have your child in your arms! I am going to miss your wonderful comments, but rest assured that I will be happy knowing that you are busy with the most important of tasks... raising a child!!! I can only hope that when Vigo is old enough to allow his Papa some "play time" that you will remember how to find us all! :) I am overjoyed that your wait has brought you such a beautiful boy!!! Enjoy!

  14. Hello Giac such a wonderfull gift you and Jo have become. Children are a Blessing and no matter how old your son will be, you will always think of him as your baby child. I know becaus my son becomes 50 this year and he is still my baby (although he would never agree haha).

  24. Hello, Giac - I just read your blog post, and I'm being tearfully happy for you and Jo. Vigo is a beautiful baby, and such a fortunate one to have the loving parents that I know you and Jo will be. It has been a long wait, and I've thought of you both so often, hoping for you to hear the happy news. And it finally happened! As a mother three times, a grandmother four times and a great-grandmother twice, I can assure you that nurturing a child is the most wonderful and joyful experience there can be - and I'm so very happy that you now get to experience this great joy firsthand. Enjoy all the moments - even the diaper ones!

    Hugs to you all, Linda

  28. YAY!!! At long last, so I wasn't too far out in my expectations after all Giac, I bet you and Jo are over the moon. :) Vigo is such a precious little cutie pie and most definitely worth the long wait.

  36. This is a true case of a crying and a laughing eye at the same time. Of course your wonderful, amazing and inspirational posts will be missed as well as your always supportive, friendly and inspiring comments - but you've got the best of all reasons to stop. I'm so happy for you and Jo that after seven years you are finally parents! Congratulations and my best wishes for you. But I think most of all I'm happy for little Vigo... he is a lucky little boy getting the chance to grow up in a loving caring home raised by two people who love him dearly. All the best for your family - and having in mind how time flies I hope at least when Vigo comes to kindergarten you'll be able to work on your mansion again. I already foresee a lot of makeovers then… ;O) Meanwhile enjoy every diaper change and every smile of your darling son!

    Hugs

  67. Dear Giac,

    Is there a better reason to not spend time on your miniatures than a miniature human needing love and care? :-)

    I am thrilled and excited by the news. I wish you and Jo and Vigo all the happiness in the world! And when you do return in a while, we'll be here. But first, enjoy every possible moment you can with your newborn child.

    Hugs to all three.
