Introducing Stella Lucia Gilbert

Our little girl, Stella Lucia Gilbert was born in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on February 26th, 2013.


Just one day before my birthday. She weighed 6.5 lbs. She’s a dual citizen – Mexican and American (Mexican because of where she was born and American because of her parents).


Both baby and mom are healthy!


We’re going to take a little break — regular scheduled blogging will continue some time next week (ish) and we’ll have more pictures and stories.

  11. Oh my goodness – she is absolutely gorgeous. Congratulations.

    I started following your blog just after you had your son and it ws wonderful to watch him grow and develop. I remember all those stories about people literally dragging him out of your arms because they had never since such a cutey white baby in real life.

    Now you have a second little angel. Well congrats to you all and have a nice rest 🙂

  14. Yay, she’s here! And she’s p-r-e-c-i-o-u-s. Start speaking Spanish immediately! By the time she starts talking–where will you be? Well, we don’t know, but at least she’ll already be babbling in two languages. 🙂 Cole is a big brother! Hope they’ll get along and they’ll love each to bits! Congratulations to you, Drew and Cole!
