The Face of an Angel.


Here's a picture of my newest nephew, Jed Michael Cuthbert. What can I say, apart from, he's the best looking baby that I have ever seen in all my years.
I'm sitting here with my brother Shaun, while he waits to go back to the hospital, I've shown him your beautiful comments, and he wants to say thankyou to everyone out there.
Both mother and baby are doing well, and brother Shaun can't get the beaming smile off his face. Well done Shauny, and Lisa, and especially the star of the show here, Jed.
Shaun say's it's the best birthday present he has ever had.
Thanks for all your support people, thanks for the shouts.

According to my husband, I'm not supposed to look at baby pictures ... might give me ideas .... ;)

He's precious. Congratulations to Shaun, Lisa, and, of course, proud Uncle Mikey.

I am happy for all of you. Well done and enjoy. They grow up fast. My son is 25 now and it seems like just last week he was a baby.

Nice of Shaun to give baby Jed Michael as his middle name. Jed looks lovely. You will have to write a lullaby now, something to sing to Jed when you are babysitting for Shaun and Lisa. Love to everyone.

He is beautiful. My husband holds all of our friend's newborns,so I can't. He knows it makes me start wanting another. As I chant my mantra..."five's enough." Tell them to enjoy him. The time passes so quickly, so hold him all the time, never let him cry, and don't complain how tired you are. In what seems an instant, they will be walking and not wanting to be held much anymore. It is a beautiful time. Congraulations.

Congratulations and much love from a Bay Area nanny who keeps her phone on 24/7 as one of my clients is due to give birth to a twin boy and girl (fatenal of course) any day now.
The adventures and love that lay ahead for Jed are sure to be wonderful, I'm chuffed to hear that you, Uncle Mikey, who has so unselfishly shared all this music with us on his own time gets to enjoy the greatest gift of all..changing nappies!
Ha ha ha mate, have a blast and wish your Shaun and Lisa all my best. Many new songs are surely to be inspired :)

Dear Mikey

There is nothing on earth more beautiful & dear than a newborn baby! Congratulations to mum, dad, you, & the rest of the family!

Thank you for the kind message you left on my blog. I will keep you posted on any sketch progress.
I did send Pete a portrait of him for a 60th birthday present.(It was only my second portrait ever...) Maybe he has it somewhere you can see it.

See you "In The Attic"!

Hi Mikey,
Thanks for this beautiful picture. You are so HAPPY!
Babies are the promise of tomorrow.
Right now the Wallflowers "birdcage" is playing, it's such a beautiful lullaby. Did you ever hear it? I'm not sure it's truly a lullaby but it reminds me of one
Maybe you'll write a lullaby for Jed.. Hey catchy name "Lullaby for Jed".
Best regards to your brother shaun and his wife, the mother of his "babybird"

Thanks everyone, I'm glad you all agree. I went to see him this afternoon, and held him for ages, his eyes are wide open, and he's got great big hands and feet, with a really strong grip. He's also got a bruise on his head where they had to suck him out. Poor little love, and still he doesn't cry, but he's always hungry and won't let Lisa rest for a minute.
My first newphew is called Ryan, then theres Jade and Veronique, my neices, then Luke, Indy and Fred. Also Ryan has a son called Ethan, does that make me a great uncle? Well now we have Jed as well.
Thanks again everyone, from a proud uncle.

Hi Mikey,

My what a handsome lad he is! Congratulations Uncle Mikey, Shaun and Lisa. Zed really is an angel. Giving birth is the closest thing in life to a miricle and you don't even have to get out of bed for it.
I would like to invite you all to come out and enjoy my good friend Beverly Shideler's showing of her architectural ceramic sculpture samples at Plumpton Green Village Hall on November 3rd from 7:30 p.m. till 9:30 p.m. She is really a fine American sculptor and it is a show worth seeing for sure. A free glass of wine for all and admission is free. Can't beat it. I have a link to her web site on my blog. Peace.

Mikey,

I just heard your song...the "work in progress" song about your nephew calling you evil.

Dude, that blew me away. I have a similar situation with my sister.

I know I am not bad. I know I am a good..no a great person. Not perfect, but I am finding my way and it is good. But, my sister, well, nothing I do is right by her.

Anyway, that was very, very cool. I would love to hear that song much much more.

Thanks.
Johanna
