Recommended Posts

well here he is guys,

brammetje lucas, AKA mini me

the first model of me me and the wifey ever build

B)

he was born on valentinesday 2010 (his actual due date)

weighing in at 8 pounds 6 ounces and measuring 21 1/2 inches he is exactly a 1:3.34 scale version of me :D

from the time the wife started her first practice push till the moment she wrapped her arms around him was a whopping 49 minutes :blink:

Wow! What a beautiful baby! Congratulations!!

My girlfriend and I put one of those kits together a little over 2 years ago. We built the female version though...

Sure is an awesome feeling, isn't it? :)

BTW.... Are you my long lost brother? :o

Congratulations! Mine turns fifteen in a couple months. Just remember, you'll wait for the day for them to walk and talk, and then pray for the day for them to sit down and shut up!

Congrats! They sure grow up fast. Our 'baby' turned 19 yesterday, and it sure hasn't felt like 19 years have past!! (We have three children, 23, 20 & 19)

I say, congratulations indeed!! It's been 15 months since we made one of those models, but it seems like only yesterday.

Enjoy your time with the little one, as they get big awful fast...it's the speed of life.
