On the contrary, I think that sofía already is beautiful, and in a time she will be pretty more!

Oh, thanks so much for your translation. I haven't the time to watch it on TV, so I really appreciate your translated version of the interview.

Does anybody know were I have to send a greeting card for Felipe and Letizia? That information would be very welcomed. I've already searched a lot, but couldn't finde the address.

Thank you for the interview. I think Leonor is very cute and princess Letizia has such a lovely voice. The princess really looks very happy!

All little babies tend to look like each other. I really don't think she'll look like her undurgarin cousins because most of them generally look like their father, and sofia doesn't have his genes.

That is beautiful redferns. It is as if she is thinking- this is just perfect life. She has her baby in her arms an adoring doting husband and a little girl who clearly loves life.

None has a perfect life, pardon my lack of optimism, Im glad to see the princess smiling again and how suportive and caring Felipe seems to be, but lets not forget that she just lost her little sister a few months ago, I think it is very likely this is a bittersweet moment for her

May be you are right to remember the bad moments but as had said the Princess's grand mother :" the life is a puzzlz with joy and sadness, today it's great moment of happynes. The life is always stronger"

If you want to resist in the life you have to take the happynes when it's here and don't think at the dark cloud of your mind in the same Time. If you do that you have great risks to never succeed to forget the pain.

Bittersweet could be a good term to describe it, but I think that, ultimately, happiness has overcome the sadness.

My maternal grandfather died just a few hours before I was born, my mom used to say that it was the most conflicting emotion she'd ever felt, but that in the end she knew that my grandfather would be very pleased if she was happy for my arrival, without a guilty conscience, because he had been expecting me anxiously (as I was the first grandkid in both sides) and had even helped to choose my name.

So I think Letizia had almost three months to 'digest' the death of Erika, therefore I might assume she felt nothing but utterly happiness when seeing her little girl for the first time.

She is shinning with happiness...And I can't avoid myself to get my heart melted watching at little Infanta Leonor trying to touch her sister (there is another photo where she get very near to reach her objective!)

I totally agree with you and you made a good point. even though her sister died recently there is nothing she can do about it and she will be so busy now with Leonor and baby Sofia. They will take up so much of her time and energy but from what I see I think she will love every minute of it.

Dear biboqunhas, I'm an old Lady who had seen a lot of things in her life, it's thee reason why I'm feel allowed to give you a very kind little advertising. Sometimes before to write something, it's better to think how you can give your thaught in the most diplomatic way and the most realistic too by comparaison of an evebtual fuutur that nobody can say to know Sorry if you find that i'm too But it's to avoid that your purposes will go on difficult to understand in their meanings.
