Who said a 6 day old baby isn’t good at playing games?

Rafa can play peek-a-boo and hide and go seek already!

Coming home

January 23, 2012

Papi and I wore special shirts to pick Rafa and Mum up from the hospital. Papi's says "Vamos Rafa" and mine says "Big Sis"

It was a long wait so I put Lucy in Rafa's crib to keep him company. Lucy is just on loan, of course.

Rafa proudly wore his Stars and Stripes hat and cardy and was wrapped in an NZ wool blanket all knitted by Abuela.

Meeting Rafa

January 22, 2012

I introduced myself.

And gave him some cuddles. I had to be very gentle.

He liked my kisses! I think we're going to get on very well.

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.

We’re still waiting for my baby brother to be born even thought the doctor thought he was going to be here weeks ago.  But that’s ok.  It means we’re all at home in front of the fire on a Friday night and I got spoilt with an episode of Dora.

I think Papi secretly likes watching Dora too.

Do you think Mum is related to this guy?

Mum has an uncanny resemblance to...

this guy.

Mum went to the doctor today for my baby brother’s routine check up and as you can see he’s getting very big.  Not long to go now before we meet him.

We also discovered that the doctor is a fellow blogger.  Her blog is (mostly) about her time working as an OB in Ethiopia and is fascinating.  I recommend grabbing a moment to check out Philippa Ribbink’s Blog.

A visit to the hospital

November 20, 2011

Don’t worry!  We’re all fine!  We were just checking out the hospital where my baby brother is going to be born.  There were some babies in the nursery that were really little.  Mum said I was little like that once too (which I find very hard to believe).  I wonder if my brother is going to be that little when he’s born?

There is so much space to run about there I'm sure I'm going to have a lot of fun when I'm back visiting Mum and my baby brother in January.

Where babies come from

After dinner I can see my baby.  I was showing it to Mum because it looks just like hers!

It’s going to be a baby…

I hope he likes playing dress ups!
