Willow Elizabeth

Happy Birthday to my brand new niece, Willow Elizabeth, born this morning at her home in Wichita, KS at 3:43 am CST. She is named after her Uncle Willie and her middle name is the same as her mom's. Thanks to the fabulous webcam I got to meet her right after her birth. This is the first birth that we all haven't been together as a family to celebrate. Brendan was born at the hospital in WA. Everyone and then some was there. Wyatt was born at home in WA and EVERYONE was there. Rachel's first, Jayden was born at their home in WA and we ALL were there. It has always been such a special thing, especially for us sisters to be together for. This time we are spread out all over. Me in PA, Jordan in OR, Rachel in KS, Joanna in WA and Willie in Heaven. It's sad and yet we have moved forward to something different. Sad, but still good. I love my little niece just as much as if I would have been there for her birth and I've already talked to everybody and even Rachel called me this morning on the phone to relay the story to me in her words. It's so great to watch our family multiply with new little ones. I hope there are a dozen more. And no, I cannot do that all on my own. Rachel and Jo, you have to help. And Jordan, it would be nice if you joined in, too. :)

I remember Wyatt's and Jayden's births real well, I believe Wyatt's birth was preceded by a fishing trip where Uncle Willie and I both landed nice fish. Got love little ones growing up wetting a line.
