Power to the Children!

Oliver at about 3 days old raising his fist in defiance of the powers that be-- or at least that's how I interpret this image.  You can also see his identification card attached to his bassinet in the hospital.  The text says in red at the top: おめでとうございます-- congratulations.  男の子-- it's a boy.  Then it has his name written in Japanese:  オリバー清武フィッシャ―様, Oliver Kiyotake Fisher-sama (very polite).  Then it lists his birth date, time, weight in grams and length in centimeters:  平成25年10月22日, 02時29分、2670g、47.5cm.  This year is usually referred to as the 25th year of the Emperor Heisei's reign.  So, that's why it reads, "25" for his birth year and not 2013.
