FINALLY, the Little Piggie We Were Missing!

Lila Maria Batista was born (TODAY!) on December 2nd, 2008 around 2:45pm (Canary Islands time). She weighed 3.3 kilos (over 7 pounds). She has dark hair (that will change eventually) and big lips (as you can see in the pics). Melany and I are sooooo happy to welcome her into our family. We were waiting for the last little piggie that went wee wee all the way home, and she is finally here!

Yeah! I am glad for a lot of things... 1. Your baby came early (always a good thing) 2. You survived a delivery in Spain (I know people do it all the time, but the thought is crazy) 3. The girls outnumber the boys in your family (always a good thing) 4. Now you have a good suvenier to bring home from Spain :) Congrats!

She is so beautiful! Congratulations! We can't wait to meet her. (Jonathan asked about you yesterday and when I told him you'd be back in about a month, his direct quote was, "Wahoo!")

One more girl, so you have 3 girls and 2 boys, we have just the opposite. I love the name Lila. Very beautiful and sophisticated. When you are up and around and bored (yeah right), I hope you will post some more pictures and tell us how things are coming along with the brood. Hugs from me and mine.
