Il est arrivé!

Mikus Jumis (for English please see below)
------------------------------------------------------------
Svētdien, pulksten 1345, vienlaikus Francijā ieradās Mikus Jumis ar savu vecmammu. Mazais, Clinique de Chataigneraie slimnīcā ar ārstes Anton-Bousquet un sage femme palīdzību, svēra 10 mārciņas, 6 unces un 21.25 collas gaŗš. Vecmamma, Clermont-Ferrand lidostā, kur to sagaidija manas grieķu draudzenes vīrs ar šofera-tipa zīmīti. Todien arī Clermontā uzsniga pirmais līpošais sniegs, kas ieradās kopīgi ar lielu aukstumu visā Eiropā. Gribu pieminēt, ka ledusskapis (par kuŗu gāja runa pagāš nedēļ) pasteidzās gan Jumim, gan sniegam pa priekšu, ierodoties ceturtdien līdz ar diviem ļoti pieklajīgiem bet galīgi angliski nerunājošiem darbniekiem.


Šodien ar Miku pārnācu mājās, un kaut ārā turpina snigt, iekšā silts un omulīgs. Svinējām Francijas crêpe dienu (par kuŗu stāstiju pirms gada) kā arī mājās pārnākšanu ar lielām plāno pankūku vakariņām un turpinam baudīt jaunāko ģimenes locekļa klātbūtni.
------------------------------------------------------------
At the exact moment his grandmother landed in Clermont-Ferrand, Mikus Jumis made his appearance in the world. Weighing 4,7 kilograms and 54 cm tall (10lb 6oz and 21.25”), he was delivered by doctor and sage femme at the Clinique de Chataigneraie in Beaumont. My mother’s flight landed five minutes early at CFE, where she was greeted by a friend bearing a sign with her name. Sunday also marked the arrival of the first sticking snow here in Clermont-Ferrand, along with the deep freeze that is enveloping Europe. At this point I will add that the refrigerator (that I mentioned last week) beat everyone, arriving last Thursday.


Today Mikus and I came home, and although it continues to snow outside it is warm and cozy inside. We celebrated jour des crêpe (Candlemas day here in France, I wrote about it here) as well as homecoming with a big dinner of crêpes, Mikus watching us wide-eyed the entire time without making a peep. And so starts life as a family of four: I just have to remember I’m now outnumbered, 3 to 1.
