Babyland Elliot Babyland


Although it now seems like an eternity, the baby was born on 8 August 1996! At that time we thought that he was rather large - at almost 9 pounds and 57cm long. However, he has never stopped growing....

As you would've guessed, the Baby is a boy.

Baby scored 9/10 (an HD) on its Apgar test - a good initial sign.

You might want to stay tuned because a further birth is scheduled for September 1998. There should be some interesting things happening in Baby's email list (for more details see below).


Now to the name:

Elliot Samuel Latham

Baby Elliot also runs his own humorous monthly email list with well over 100 people on the list. You'll see copies of the email and how to join this elite list below.


The baby also likes to listen to music:

As I've noted above, Baby Elliot maintains a now sizeable email list. He reports all the goings on and his thoughts in the list - it's usually rather funny seeing the world through Elliot's somewhat disoriented eyes.
