It's official. Our little miss Oswin Jade, exists. Where previous to today she merely existed in body and soul alone, she now exists in a manner most fitting for the international community at large: as the newest (and cutest) article of red tape.
Today Doc and I spent some time over at the Mairie in Meyrin, Switzerland, clarifying with some very official Swiss people the differences between a prenom and a middle name (which, to our surprise is actually not a middle name by American standards), signing papers, and being ticky tacky over city of birth vs. county of birth. In the end, signatures were signed, papers were stamped, and our little girl, now 6 weeks after her birth, has a birth certificate. Next we can officially begin the process to acquire her passport, and from there the world is her (and our) oyster.
Congrats little miss, you're well on your way!
A la prochaine friends...
