Joel Peterson

Jac and I want to thank you for all your text messages, emails and comments here on the blog. Little Joel is home already and is sleeping peacefully in his cot as I write this.

Yesterday it was 37°C (99F) here in Brisbane and for a while I thought I would die.

Ba-da-boom, just like that.

Luckily I didn’t.

As some of my readers may have noticed, some of the comments on this blog are in Swedish. I have quite a few readers following my new life from overseas and I hope there’s room for all of us.

I am trying to teach my son(s) Swedish and hopefully we’ll be able to drive Jac crazy using our secret language in a couple of years.

I love how Noah reacted to Joel when he first saw him. He actually knew straight away what was going on. His face lit up and he leaned over to kiss his baby brother. And he hasn’t stopped since. Every time Joel cries, Noah comes in and kisses him gently.

“No guy (no cry)”, he says and shakes his head.

dude…

even your new watermark is cool.

sheesh.

ett fantastiskt bildspråk, stort grattis till er alla och kanske mest till storebror.

Sooo darn adorable! Wow… Every family would love your pictures of precious moments like this, you really know how to capture feelings and store them for the future.

I love the picture where Noah seems to be counting Joel’s toes. It totally choked me up the first time I saw it, and at the same time I was grinning like an idiot. It’s beautiful in so many ways.

Completely gorgeous pictures- congratulations to you and Jac!

Jag är lite sen med att gratulera ser jag! Hur som helst, stort grattis och lycka till! Som vanligt fantastiska bilder som berör, helt otroliga.

Fantastiska bilder som vanligt. ;) Så fint med en storebror som bryr sig om den nye familjemedlemmen.

Herregud, sa javla fett med en ny kiddo!

GRATTIS GRATTIS GRATTIS!

Du e verkligen lykligt lottad, mannen.

Grattis igen.

i know i already commented in the slideshow but i had to say again how much these photographs moved me. we are thinking about a “#2” as well… even as i watch my friends struggle to adjust to the tremendous changes a second or third child brings! :) i hope your wife is recovering apace. thank you for sharing such an intimate and momentous part of your lives with us…

Jag håller med den tidigare kommentaren… Det är inspirerande hur snygg ditt vattenmärke faktiskt är! Det nästan tillför bilden. Det kanske låter fånigt men det ser så fint ut, lite eftertänkt placerade, lite i bakgrunden och inte förstörande. BRA JONAS :D

Underbara bilder! Stort grattis!

Jag måste bara säga att vattenmärket känns som en naturlig del av bilden – Love the watermark

Grattis till dig och din familj! Så otroligt fina bilder du har. Ta hand om er.

Vilka fantastiskt vackra bilder! Noahs ögon är helt otroligt vackra och lilla Joel så söt.Stort Grattis till er båda!! Älskar din blogg och ditt sätt att skriva och förmedla bilder.Keep up the good work! Love & peace/Flower.

Aww.. Noah sounds like the perfect big brother. Joel will be lucky to have him in his life! Congratulations and good luck to all of you!

Beautiful… just beautiful…

Joel’s a REALLY cool name ;)

Love your work mate, well done!

I’m at home sick today, and found this now – amazing how well you tell stories, Jonas.
