A Very Happy New Year!

A quick note to all: Spike* Francis Chilberto arrived into the world on Friday, December 31, around noon, weighing in at seven pounds, fifteen and a half ounces. Congratulations to Mommy and Daddy and sister Isobel. We got to see him when he was only a few hours old, what a privilege and a joy! (*Spike's parents have decided to retain his in utero nickname as his first name ex utero. In their words: "He just doesn't look like an Oliver".)

No photos just yet but watch this space for more news of this exciting event! When you have a new addition to the family all else shrinks into the shadows. . .
