The wait is over – my baby brother is here!

My baby brother was born this morning.  We’ve named him Rafael Felipe (Rafa for short).  He aced all his tests.  Weighed in at 3.661kg (8lb 1 oz in US speak).  He’s eaten breakfast and now he’s just waiting to meet me!  Papi is coming to pick me up now so I better go and get ready.


He aced all his tests.  This is the weigh in.  That's 8lbs 1oz in US talk.

    Ana, you are going to be a very very busy girl taking care of everybody.

    Bless you all, Nathalie
