Welcome Iona Esperanza

Jordan and I are pleased to let you all know that our second child was born on February 20 here in San Miguel de Allende. Iona Esperanza came into the world even quicker than her older brother, which is saying something. Luckily we made it to the hospital in time, as did the doctors and everything went smoothly, if very fast. She's been here two weeks now and it's hard to remember a time when she wasn't a part of our family.


Magnus is adjusting well to being a big brother, even if he does find her a somewhat mysterious addition to the house.


She spends most of her time sleeping, which you'll be able to see from the photos :)




I've been taking it easy, and catching up on my scrapbooking while the baby sleeps.
