Gus

I did give a clue last night when I updated the sidebar, but even the eagle-eyed Dave didn't spot it.

Born about 10 pm on 20th August, baby unnamed as yet by his parents, but here he will be Augustus Bufo.

Oh he looks lovely! Now I look at your sidebar all the grandchildren seem to have got two names now. Bet Zerlina's chuffed. Congrats to all.

Yay!!!!

Congratulations to Weeza! Well done that woman. Congratulations to everyone else.

And welcome Augustus Bufo; you are very welcome here.

Dave said...

I have already said it in FB, but Huzzah!!

Z said...

Yes, I thought that Squiffany and Pugsley shouldn't be left out!

I haven't told Zerlina yet, she'll want to go straight home and Weeza won't be home until later. It was intended he should be born at home, but he got stuck, having turned sideways, and it was forceps in hospital again in the end. Still, they're both fine.

And thanks.

Congratulations to all of you. He looks grand. Do his parents know of his blog name yet? Augustus Bufo indeed!!!!!!

Ivy said...

Congratulation! How lovely he looks.

allotmentqueen said...

Erm.....when I googled bufo it seemed to refer to a genus of toads - is this what Christopher is referring to? I am perplexed.

Z said...

I did mention the name, yes - he still hasn't got a real-life name.

When he didn't decide to be born by his due date, Weeza started calling him Lazy Toad. So Toad he will remain...I like toads very much, I posted a photo of me holding one, once.

Tim said...

Congrats to all! Bufo is indeed a toad (I like them too), but also, according to Chambers, 'a black tincture in alchemy'. So there's a career path for Gus - we're going to need alchemists in the future...

Z said...

I'll provide him with regular quantities of base metal, Tim.
