Please welcome Vivienne Emine Hanci!

As promised last week, I would like to introduce you to Monkey's buddy, my daughter: Vivienne Emine Hanci. Before doing that, I would love to share a few pictures from a fun photo session I had with my wife at home 2 days before we went to the hospital...

This picture is the moment when Vivienne is making contact with the outside world for the first time. She was breech so Jennifer had to go thru a C-Section.

There she is, 2.85kg (6.5 lbs)

The proud parents with their baby in the OR.

Throughout the entire pregnancy, thru the operation and following the operation, during the early recovery period, Jen has been and still is a trooper. I'm proud of her!

Vivienne's first bath in the hands of one of the very skilled and incredibly friendly nurses of the wonderful Cedars-Sinai Hospital.

This was easily the happiest day of my life and I am only able to share a very small fraction of it. Because it's time to bond with my little daughter.

Welcome, Vivienne Emine Hanci :o)


  1. Oh my lord this is so intimate!
    I feel like I was there!
