How Exciting ! Toni’s New Baby.


At last ! We have all been waiting months for this ! Well, 9 months !


  Toni’s baby boy was delivered this morning. He weighed 3.3kg (7 1/2 lbs)


Both mum and baby are fine.


Pedro, the dad, has named the boy Liam. Remember I asked you to suggest a name for the baby, well none of you picked Liam, but Toni thanks you all for your suggestions.


Toni & Pedro emailed me the day after I published this post. They picked Liam from Amy’s comment …..



…… where Toni & Pedro corrected me by what Amy said

Dale las gracias a tus amigos del blog por sus felicitaciones. Tengo que decirle que el nombre Liam si lo suguirio una amiga. Aquí le dejo su enlace…

Oh, it’s difficult to pick unusual names these days! All the unusual ones are becoming more common. Caden, Liam….I like those. What about Romeo? Roman, I like. Best of luck to her and her new family addition. I look forward to seeing what she decided and seeing her little one! Cheers, Ralph. xoxox 🙂

So we have a winner !


For those new readers of this blog I had better bring you up to speed. Toni’s Spanish family live in the apartment below mine and for the last couple of years Toni has been feeding me, cleaning my apartment and washing my clothes. Pedro, her husband, has been doing the million odd jobs for me which I am unable to do. A wonderful family !

Eidan, Toni, Ralph, Pedro, Ariadne

Congratulations Toni and Pedro 😀 ❤

    • Hello my dear friend Amy 😀 What a lovely comment. I am sure Toni & Pedro thank you for it 😀


      They picked Liam from your comment in naming the baby and I missed it when drafting this post. Silly me ! I have updated and corrected this post.
      Please email me, to , your address and I will send you a little pressie !
      Hugs. Ralph xox ❤


  1. I absolutely agree with what Amy has said. I hope he’ll be a good little baby for his family. What a Christmas present! Please give my best wishes to all 5 of them, with hugs. oxo ❤

    • Hi Yvonne 😀
      I asked Pedro this morning if Toni would like to reply to all the comments and he asked me to do it as Toni needs to rest. So I am replying on their behalf.
      Yes. What a lovely Christmas present ! All 5 of the family will be home tomorrow and the other 2 children break up from school today. So quite a handful for mum Toni over the holiday.
      Ralph xox ❤


    • Hi Philippa 😀 Thank you. And a Happy Christmas to you too 😀 Yes. Christmas is all about celebrating birth. Ralph xox ❤


  2. Wow so cute, please do congrats – not much beats a newborn baby and the mother in beauty… 🙂

    By the way, it always amuses me about the english way of saying have been born – been delivered – when translating it into other languages – so we sit with the question whether it was delivered by the postman, Santa Claus, the stork or United Parcel… 😀

    • Hi Drake 😀 Congrats passed on. Toni is reading all the comments on her phone in hospital and must be thrilled with your kind words.
      I wasn’t there, so Liam was probably delivered by a stork as we have them here in this part of Spain 😉 Ralph 😀


  3. Ralph, it’s your shortest and the most serious post! Are you smitten by the baby? Please
    give my best wishes to Liam’s parents and kiss the baby for me (if you are allowed).
    How are you? Did raw onions help?

    • Hi JF 😀 I KNOW ! I really don’t know what came over me ! Probably the ooooooh factor of the baby, Normal service will be resumed on my next post 😀
      I’ll pass on your best wishes and will kiss the baby on your behalf.
      The raw onions are where they belong, in their skins, as they make me cry !
      Ralph 😀

      • I have a son born on the 29th of December. When he was little, we celebrated his birthday on June 29th to give him a celebration away from Christmas. Now I try to give him something for Christmas with a ‘related’ birthday gift. One year I gave him a printer, then I gave him printer cartridges for his birthday.—-no wonder, I stay broke. LOL.

        Merry Christmas to you, too, Ralph. I hope Santa is good to you this year. Tell Mom congrats on that wee one, and don’t blink. They grow up so fast. ❤ xxo back at ya, dear. 🙂 Olivia blew you a kiss, by the way.

      • So unfair having a December birthday like mine ! I used to get one present as well ! Printer cartridges are not cheap are they ?
        Mom brought the baby up to see me tonight. He’s so small and looked like a guppy fish as he was sucking on fresh air waiting for his supper. Mom has a bad back but glad the baby is born 😀
        Kiss back to Olivia. Don’t tell her ! 😀

  12. Ralph, what a blessing right around the Christmas season! Too cute for words! On another note, I am terrible for checking my emails, but when I did, imagine my surprise when I received e-greetings I think they’re called. You make my heart so happy. xoxo Much love to you my sweet friend. Thank you for thinking of me.

      I didn’t know what to send to you my friend, but a happy ecard makes a smile worth much more than a physical present. Merry Christmas Belinda with hugs. Ralph xox ❤
