Introducing.....

Elizabeth (Ella) Joy King
Ella was born on Sunday, January 17, 2010. She weighed six pounds, nine ounces and was eighteen and three quarter inches long. Never in all my life have I seen a more sweet natured baby than our dear Ella. From the very beginning she has been so different from all of her sisters. She very strongly resembles the King side of the family. This little one came out an expert at all things pertaining to eating, sleeping, burping and snuggling. I feel like I am in a dream. I could never have imagined having such an easy, precious little one!

Ella is named after her great-great-grandmother. Ever since marrying into the King family I have heard bout "Grammy Ella" and the wonderful legacy that she passed down. After having polio she was confined to her bed for forty years, but was a most faithful prayer warrior all of her days. Elizabeth is also the name of two very dear friends of ours!
Our prayer for Ella is that she will make God smile every day of her life, that she will be mighty for Him and that she will end her life knowing that she has pleased her Maker.
