Mixed emotions...

It has been a LONG day already...Last night we got the news that Pablo´s grandma had passed away. I know a few of you had asked about her and we appreciate your love and thoughts. We are headed back down to Polcura tonight around 11:30 and will probably be back by Sunday.

We also got some good news today too. My younger brother Tim and his wife Abby had their first little guy last night around 1:30 am. I think his name is going to be Dayton (not sure yet...) but he weighed 8 lbs 11 oz. and is 21 inches long! I wish I was there to give him big auntie-like kisses but I am excited for them! Congratulations Tim and Abby!

Look at those cheeks! What a sweetheart!

Isn't it weird how things work? One spirit leaves this earth just as another is coming. How bittersweet! Sorry about Pablo's grandma. I will be thinking about you.

Sorry to hear about Pablo's grandma. That's always hard. But concrats to Tim too! He doesn't seem old enough to me to have a baby!

Becky I have been a slacker on the blogs lately and finally am getting updated on yours... First, I am sorry about Pablo's grandmother. I'll keep you and his family in my prayers. I am so glad that you were able to meet her though. Second, Congratulations on your engagement. The ring is really beautiful. Someday I hope I can meet Pablo! You guys are so cute in all your pictures and it looks like you're having a great time there. I love your list of things you like there- kids playing in the streets and the movies with subtitles :) Your newest nephew is adorable! All these pictures you take are beautiful. I miss and love you lots!

I am sorry about Pablo's grandma though! That's never easy especially when you have to watch the ones you love! I heard you had another little one! I saw your Mom and Dad at the hospital today when I had to takemy little Jack back for a test. They were so excited!

Sorry to hear about his abuela. Let him know our thoughts and prayers are with you guys right now. Also, congrats on the new nephew. It's a very interesting post, because it's both ends of the spectrum. The joy of welcoming a new life into the world, and the sorrow of seeing one pass on!
