BABY OF THE WEEK
ISABELLA MALAGON AVILA
Born March 17, 2018
After 11 years as an only child, Valentina Avila is delighted to at last be a big sister.
“Valentina had wanted us to have another baby for so long, although we were happy with just the one,” says mum Diana. “Valentina pushed and pushed, and now we have Isabella.”
Diana says Valentina adores her sister, who in turn giggles happily as Valentina dances with her to Latin music. Although generally an easy baby, Isabella is very unsettled between 10pm and 1am, when she settles.
Despite waiting so long for their second child, Diana and her husband Carlos took weeks to choose a name.
“Carlos ...could not agree on anything for ages,” Diana says, “but we were all very happy with Isabella.”
