As with Diego, I’ve incorporated this birth announcement into the weblog so that people can leave messages to Kim and Sabino, and to each other. The information below is, to the best of my knowledge, accurate. Please send me corrections or additions.
Congratulations to Kim and Sabino Arredondo on the birth of their third child (and first daughter), Isabel Pilar, born at 5:30 this morning via Cesarean section. She weighed 7 lbs., 11 oz. If you would like to congratulate the Arredondo family, they are in room six at the Willamette Falls Hospital ‘Birthplace’, after which they will be at home.
Aside from the C-section, it sounds as if Isabel was another easy birth for Kim. From what I understand, she went into labor at about 3:00, arrived at the hospital at around 3:30, and gave birth two hours later.
Isabel’s brothers, Antonio and Diego, seem pleased with their little sister. Diego is fascinated by Isabel’s tiny hands. Antonio wants “Kimberly” to come home, of course, but he has his trains to keep him occupied.
We joined Jeremy and Jennifer for a hospital last night. Emma wanted to hold Isabel. Here, she and Antonio take turns giving her gentle kisses:
It was great to see how proud Sabino was of his new daughter. He positively glowed.
Congratulations, Kim and Sabino! We’re all happy for you.
