I Love Luci!

Luciana "Luci" was born on April 23, 2009 at 9:02 am.

7 pounds, 4 ounces

20 1/2 inches

She is named after my father, Luciano (who both John and I adore). It's the name that I always wanted to use for a daughter since I was younger, and when I mentioned it to John, he never suggested another name. My Dad's reaction when we told everyone her name was absolutely priceless - I wish we had it on video. Totally worth keep it a secret for the entire pregnancy!

We are home now, and Luci is doing great!
