this past week has been a mixture of emotions ranging from pure happiness to sadness beyond description. last wednesday we were on cloud nine as we arrived home with luciana. However within minutes of arriving home we discovered that our beloved pediatrician was involved in a horrific car accident about one hour after he discharged luciana. the grief we felt was numbing. then two days later the next crashing moment came as we learned that he had passed away from results of his injuries. i wish i could describe the void that has been left in our hearts for this man that our family trusted and admired so much. he was only 50 years old, and left behind a wife and four sons. please keep their family in your prayers.
Our little angel is doing fabulous. She is 9 days old today and at her appointment this morning she weighed 7 pounds, 5 ounces!! She is in the 25% for weight and height.
here are a few photos from our week. greyson holding his baby sister after we arrived home:

these photos were taken on sunday (my 33rd birthday). we were just about to run a quick errand to the mall so i could pick up more nursing tanks. jim of course stayed in the car with luciana while i went inside. it felt SO strange leaving her for just a few moments!
