LITTLE BOY WITH A BIG NAME
"The children". It still sounds like someone else talking when I say that but, it's true...there are two now. Rafael Gordon Stathis was born on 30 October 2009 and he's just so lovely.
After months of preparing, imagining, dreaming, I am still surprised by his prescence. Where exactly did he come from!? While I know the biological explaination for his being here (!), it's still sometimes difficult to believe that he is actually with us. It still feels like a surprise. A wonderful surprise. A surprise we never imagined we would EVER have. We're all in-love with him and Elsa is a great big sister, just like we knew she would be. Rafa is a relaxed, content baby. He shows his happiness with wide, lop-sided smiles and gentle gurgles.Before meeting our beautiful boy, I went into a frenzy of nesting...and I mean a FRENZY! For months!!! It really did get ridiculous...comical even.
