New Addition

In my reflection time I recalled one of my biggest blessings of 2007. I officially became an aunt. My husband is an only child, and I have one sister so imagine my glee when shortly after I had my son, my sister called me and informed me she was pregnant. On July 10th Natalia Jordyn arrived with a head full of auburn hair. She was a true answer to prayer because my sister has some health complications, but both she and Natalia were very healthy- a miracle.

The one downside of all of this is that my sister, brother-in-law and adorable niece live very far away (as in overseas and in a remote location). I haven't even been able to hold her yet. HOWEVER, this year they are coming back for an extended stay. I cannot wait. I've already begun to send her books and hold onto my girls' "good" outfits. From the pictures and video clips they send me, she's full of bubbly personality and has the most adorable chuckle. Of course, I'm not biased in any way.

We get their newsletters. I agree she is a cutie!

Joel has twin nephew and a neice the same ages as our youngest 2 and my brother's wife is due with their first in March. Another girl for Ellie to play with. Yeah!

Living away from family has it's sacrifices. Our family is in AR and Texas. Maybe someday we'll live closer.

She is so cute, I can't wait to meet her myself! There's talk of coming through this way on their way back, so I hope it works out!!!
