I'm a "Tia" again...

My very good friend Lucia gave birth to her second son in Spain yesterday. Apparently labour was quite long and ended in a c-section. I've chatted with her brother and husband online briefly in the past couple hours. Both mama and baby are doing really well. He's totally adorable. They named him Javier - after his dad.

This is so bitter sweet. I'm over the moon excited for her because she is an amazing mother. She got pregnant with her first on our wedding night. Funny story - she wanted to start trying for her first on their trip to Canada for our wedding. We put a "loot bag" in their hotel room including Materna vitamins (they don't have them in Spain). She got pregnant the next night.

When we went to Spain earlier this year she said she was ready to try for her second so we took along another 3 bottles of Materna with us. She took one and well...here's Javier!

The reason it is so bitter sweet is we got pregnant at the very same time. Our little guy would have been born some time in the next 10 days or so...we were thrilled to be pregnant together and had so many hopes for our little ones to grow up and be good friends.

Little Javier has an angel buddy watching over him...


Here are a few pictures I stole from her Facebook page...








I just can't wait to meet him...maybe we need to plan another trip to Spain! Ole!!!

Oh what delightful photos! Congratulations. And (((hugs))) too, because it must really hurt to think about the dreams you had not long ago.

I'm so sorry you were sick over the holidays... and I hope you're feeling better soon. Take care, okay?
