I'm proud to introduce the newest member of the family, my son, Yuri Arthur Linaschke. 

The name “Yuri” (written “Jurij” in Slovenia, where my wife Alenka is from—but pronounced the same) is the result of our hunt for a strong, simple, yet uncommon name with similar pronunciation in both languages. “Yuri” means “farmer” in most cultures, which is a nod to Alenka’s family roots. It’s also a variation of “George”; a solid historical name. The most well known Yuri in history is likely Yuri Gagarin, the first human in space.

Please join us in welcoming the newest addition to our family!

PS—If you're waiting for a response from me on some issue, this is why I have been out of touch. I'll catch up soon.

Baby Yuri

Joseph,  Congrats.  What a handsome, beautiful baby.  Obviously, he takes after his mother ;-)  So happy for the both of you

Congrats Joseph and Alenka,  may Juri bring you heaps of joy.  The creation of new life is a wonderful miracle and it’s a privilege to be the custodians of such a new little bundle.  Enjoy!

Wow! Top effort Mr and Mrs Linaschke, such a gorgeous boy. Happy days!

Congrats Linaschkes from Collingwood, Canada. Mom and Dad, please do not forget to be included in the many photos of your new child. He will want to know you as you were when he arrived, and later throughout his life.

Oh, he is so nice looking.  Going to be a handsome boy.  Congratulations, you must be so proud.  Please pass on the congratulations to your wife, as I suspect she had A LOT to do with this beautiful creation. 

I'd much rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
