Topaz Daddy here. I'm taking over the blog while Frances is busy with hourly feedings. (Our new little guy is a hungry one.) Yes, you might have heard (especially if you follow my wife on Twitter) we just had a baby.
Here's Frances on May 11, at approximately 230am. Zero sleep. Labor began at midnight and it was fast and painful. This picture was taken at the hospital before the worst of the pain.
And before we knew it, the baby was out. Just two hours later, at 450am. I literally walked into the delivery room, found a spot to stand in, and then took this picture.
One push! That's all it took.
Iñigo Julian Amper Sales. Like with our first son Vito, the criteria for naming the baby was to give him a unique name that could stand on its own. We also wanted a real name with some history. (We are actually quite conservative.) That led us to some names that are out of circulation, and we settled on Iñigo.
Julian (pronounced with an "H" sound) is the name of Frances's grandfather.
My favorite people in the world. Vito is actually very sweet to his bro, even though he is poking Iñigo in the face in this picture.
