    Wow, that is fantastic news Rik! Thanks for the pictures; he looks like a crier! ;) Congrats!

    What are the little colored balls on top of the cakes (the beschuit met muisjes)? Little things of frosting?

    Yaron is definately not a crier. He is very silent. Only when hungry will he let himself be heard. The whole time I was there (a couple of hours) did I not hear him at all.

    Muisjes on top of the beschuit are sugared aniseed balls.

    I am a firm believer in the indoctrination of young kids. Toward that end we bought a 'Snugli' for my duaghters (a 'backback' you wear on your chest to hold the baby).

    Rik, get a Snugli for Yaron, volunteer to babysit and then play Civ with him strapped to your chest. Not only are turn-based games are perferct for holding babies, but through osmosis they pick up the addiction.

    It worked for my girls, my five year old not only loves computer games in general but has grown with the Civ franchise in particular. She regularly requests the 'Baba Yetu' theme song to be played and even took the CD with all the Civ IV music to her pre-school to play for the class.

    The more Civ addicts we can make at a younger age, the better the chances that we will live to see Civ 12! ;)

    Enjoy your nephew.
