Hi all. Abigail is very good at giving you all the details about our wonderful experience with welcoming Rafa to our family so I'll let her do that. I just wanted to give you the basic info and show you some pictures and video of our new baby.
Rafael was born at 7:50am on 18-Feb-2010
Joondalup Hospital in Perth, Western Australia (about 15 min from home)
He was 8lbs 8oz.
Abigail was amazing and brave. I'm not saying birth is easy but it was much easier than it was with Arieli both, birth and recovery as well. I was blessed to have a week off work so I could help in the house. Some families in the Ward were kind enough to cook some meals for us so that was great. I'll go back to work tomorrow so Abi will be alone with the children for the first time... good luck to her!

Hola a todos. Abigail es muy buena en darles todos los detalles sobre la bienvenida de Rafa a nuestra familia asi que voy a dejar que ella lo haga. Solo queria darles alguna informacion y mostrarles fotos y videos de nuestro nuevo bebe.

Abigail estuvo increible y fue muy valiente. No digo que dar a luz es facil pero fue mucho mas facil que con Arieli en dar a luz y tambien en recuperarse. Tuve la bendicion de tomar una semana de vacaciones para asi poder ayudar en la casa. Algunas familias en el Barrio nos trajeron cena asi que eso fue una gran ayuda. Regreso a trabajar manana asi que Abigail va a estar solita con los dos ninos en la casa.... Buena suerte!
We've been a bit slack on our blog but we're finally getting around to it again.
Our most exciting news right now is that we are expecting a new addition to our family in February next year. We just found out that we are having a little boy and are so excited. We can't wait to meet him!
Below are some photos of Arieli taken recently by a friend from our stake who is a photographer (http://www.janegrayphotography.com.au/).
Arieli is thriving and is truly a delightful little girl. She runs all over the place and says a few words now but her favourites are "hi" and "no!" She will be 18 months next month and going to nursery. Not a baby anymore!
My sister Katie and her husband and their two girls are moving over here to Australia at the beginning of December and we can't wait. It will be so nice to have them close and Arieli will have so much fun playing with her cousins. We are all doing well, waiting for summer to come back so we can have some warmer weather.
