Well it took long enough coming! We had given up checking emails everyday as we had been waiting so long, so we only received the great news today (Monday)! Amelia May Ives was born on Friday morning, and she is very cute, but we would say that since she is Jon´s niece! Blanca had another round of excitable jumping up and down, unashamedly in the Internet cafe.  She weighed in at 6lb 9oz, and her mother apparently took it all in her stride as if it was a normal day in the baby making world, no drama, but if you met Jon´s sister you would understand!

We both can´t wait to get back and see them both. As you probably have guessed, we have been buying lots of cool things for them from South America for Christmas. Don´t worry parents, we have a few small gifts for you too!!

Below is a photo of Grandma with Amelia, and Mother with Isabelle.

My nieces!

Ha tardado bastante en llegar pero ya esta aqui!!!! Ya habiamos dejado de mirar el email todos los dias, asi que no nos hemos enterado hasta hoy, lunes, que Jon era tio por segunda vez!!! Amelia May Ives nacio el viernes por la mañana, y es guapisima (aunque claro, no somos los mas objetivos!). Blanca de nuevo no pudo evitar saltar y saltar, aunque estabamos en un Internet Cafe! La niña peso solo 3 kg y la mama esta tan tranquila, no hubo nada de drama (si conocierais a la hermana de Jon, no os sorprenderia!).

Estamos muy emocionados por ver a las dos bebes a nuestro regreso! Ya os podeis imaginar que hemos estado comprando un monton de regalos para ellos! Y algunos tambien para los orgullosos papas!!!

Arriba podeis ver una foto de Amalia con su abuela e Isabelle con su mama.

On a lazy Sunday afternoon, having watched 2 films and a bit bored, Jon went to an Internet cafe to discover an email from his dad that started like this: Jo’s waters broke last night and Tim took her into the hospital! Jon went back to the hostel, and as if by passing comment, told Blanca the news, who proceeded to jump excitedly up and down for a good 5 minutes!

Jon thought they had plenty of time to post their congratulations card to arrive just after the birth, but Jo was a couple of weeks early! After 18 hours Jon´s niece, Isabel Evelyn, was born! Weighing a hefty 7lbs 13oz, with a full head of black hair and apparently very beautiful, but that description came from the parents so we´ll have to be the judge of that when we see the photos! 🙂 … but also later confirmed by Isabel´s grandparents!

You don´t need us to tell you that we are all chuffed! … and in a couple of weeks Jon´s sister is going to give birth to his second niece or first nephew, come on Eve hurry up!! Now Jon can break out he Lego, and regress into being a child, it´s going to be fun!!! Blanca is going to speak Spanish to them whether they like it or not, and probably buy lots of cute baby things for them!

Era un domingo tranquilo, habiamos visto dos peliculas, cuando Jon, algo aburrido, decidio ir a un cibercafe y que encontro? Un correo de su padre que empezaba: Jo (su cuñada) rompio aguas anoche y Tim (su hermano) la ha llevado al hospital! Jon se lo comento a Blanca como si nada y su reaccion fue saltar, saltar y saltar!!!

Creiamos que teniamos mucho tiempo para mandar una tarjeta de felicitacion pero Jo se adelanto dos semanas! Despues de 18 horas, la sobrina, Isabel Evelyn, llego! Peso 3.23kgs, tiene el pelo negro y es muy bonita! Aunque eso es lo que dicen los padres… queremos ver fotos!

La familia esta muy, muy feliz! Y en dos semanas, mas o menos, va a llegar otro bebe, el hijo o hija de la hermana de Jon! Venga Eve, no podemos esperar! Ahora Jon podra volver a jugar con los Lego con sus nuevos sobrinos, que divertido!! Blanca les va a hablar español, lo quieran o no, y a comprarles muchas cosas monisimas!!!
