Default Marina - where's that baby?

Every morning I turn on my confuser and go straight to Notes From Spain, hoping to see the big announcement. The anticipation is getting TOO much - I don't know how much longer I can wait!

I think Ben and Marina shouldn't have told us. They should've waited until little Rafa Curtis Diez arrived and then posted a photo of him on the NFS blog with a banner headline that read "Under New Management: Meet the new boss"

I came under new management when I met Marina, you mean there's going to be another boss in the house too?

Oh Boy.

And Jon, still a few weeks to go, don't panic. I'm not (much!)

The newborn's name could be "Rafa Díez Curtis" just as well. It's up to the parents to decide whose surname goes first with their offspring.

What a wonderful opportunity to show that some laws and customs in Spain are not always quite as sexist or male chauvinist as most like to think !!!

I found this post while searching for an announcement of the baby's arrival.

Did I miss it or is he still cooking?

Default How is the baby?

Based on Jon's post, the baby has arrived!?!

I have been waiting and watching to see any signs of the arrival...

Monday's child is fair of face.
Tuesday's child is full of grace.
Wednesday's child is full of woe.
Thursday's child has far to go.
Friday's child is loving and giving.
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay.
