A new kind of love

Friday night a very wonderful thing happened. Lydia and I were so excited that we couldn't go to sleep and stayed up until Daddy came home from patrol. Don't we look excited?

I became an aunt and the girls became cousins for the very first time!!!!

Talia Mae King was born October 30, 2009 to Jonathan and Laura King. She weighed 7 pounds and 10 ounces and was 20 inches long. Talia (pronounced "Tuh-lee-ah) means "Dew of Heaven" in Hebrew.

I haven't gotten to see her yet so I don't have any pictures of my own, but here are some that I stole from Jonathan!

The proud daddy!

The beautiful mommy!

The GORGEOUS little girl!

I am absolutely dying to hold her! They are planning on coming up for Thanksgiving so it looks like I will have to wait until then. I try not to think about it too much for fear that depression will overtake me during the wait. I'm very hopeful that time will fly and that I will some how survive that long without her!
Now, together David and I have twelve siblings, so we are pretty sure that in the future there will be no shortage of cousins, nephews and nieces. Somehow I just can't imagine it getting any less exciting with any of them. New life is such an amazing miracle!

How fun! I can't wait till some of my siblings get married and have babies! I told them it isn't fair that they get to be Aunts before I do!! Lol...

Thanks for the comment that you left on my blog, that was so sweet! It would be such fun meeting you, I am sure we would have a lot in common!
