Introducing: Seth Miguel Galindo

Baby Seth Sleeping

Seth was born on Friday, 27 February 2009 at 9:55 am. He came one week early, for which Cathy was grateful. He was born  51 cm long, and weighed  3.3 kg (7 pounds 5 ounces).

He is a very happy little baby and loves being a part of the action, and he loves his food, so he’ll fit in well with the rest of the family.

Cathy is recovering quickly and definitely knows she’s alive now with two little babies.

Isaiah loves his little brother and fake cries when Seth cries, just to show some sympathy. He also loves sharing his toys with the bub.

I will be taking a month off work to be with the family, and to catch up on a few things around the house.

The Saga Continues: Bump the Second

We have been blessed with another miracle of life, a baby boy due March 6.

Although, we had a stressful start, everything seems to be alright now. Bump II is growing healthy and strong, and kicking away.

We have some pictures and even a video to show you for those who would like a closer look.

There will be a 19 month gap between the boys, so it should be lots of fun.

We still haven’t decided on a name for him, and suggestions are welcome. One possibility could be Jeremiah, it fits quite appropriately since we think this should be our last child, and if another one comes along it will be quite fitting to call him/her Lamentations, but that’s another story 😉 As you can see we are bit desperate for names.

Cathy is not feeling sick anymore (thank goodness for that), but she’s running a bit low on energy.

Isaiah is growing and is full of energy, and it’s quite funny to see him get hipcupps after getting the giggles. He’s trying walking now, so there’s never a dull moment.

A baby’s first words are often “mama” and “dada,” much to the delight of parents. Now scientists think they know why.

Isaiah’s Dedication

On Sabbath Afternoon at 4.30 pm we had Isaiah Dedicated. It was a lovely time.

We were blessed to have Pr Joe Webb perform the dedication for us before he moved to QLD. We had a lot of our family and friends come and support us with this decision. Some travelling up from Sydney and down from Port Macquarie.

The University Students that Ben is working with contributed to the service with songs and a beautiful poem.

It was a very special time for us and we are very thankful to everyone that came and helped make it a memorable event. Afterwards we had a late afternoon tea.

We had the dedication in Jesmond Park as we thought it would be great to do it outside especially since the weather has been just beautiful!!
