Hurrah!! She's here!!

Little Lirah Noelle is finally here!
My mom left me a message a little while ago that my sister, Lillia, aka God's-most-patient-expectant-mother, had her water broken last night and got in the birthing tub about 9:30 p.m. Lirah emerged on her due date today at 12:55 a.m. She is 8 lbs and 19 inches long and apparently has dark hair and eyes and blond eyelashes and eyebrows. She was attended by her wonderful daddy, Jake, too. Big sister, Cleya, is probably bursting at the seams at Grandma's house.
I'm having a hard time NOT jumping in the car and driving south this minute, but only grandparents and siblings are allowed to visit the baby at the hospital, so it would be a long drive and I'd have to take binoculars and have Lil hold Lirah up at the window to be able to see anything. And that could just get awkward if a policeman happened to drive by and wondered what I was doing...
But if Sir Littler is remaining safely encased within me on Friday (and my doc says it's ok to go when I see her on Thursday) ... look out, Lirah, here comes Aunt Apey!
Anyway -- SHE'S HERE!! Hurrah!!

Hooray, hooorah!! Now, how fun will this be for Lirah and Sir Littler?!! We have cousins that are 6 wks apart in our family - ZHEESH. What one didn't think of, the other did. Talk about a duo in crime! BUT they sure have had fun! :D

Grandma MUST be giddy, two babies at once. :D

Oh, I cannot tell you how proud I am that she is here. Thank you Lord.
And I am glad you are okay too.
Oh boy isn't big sister beside herself as well as mommie, daddie and the rest of the caboodle.

You got to forgive me April, I am short on details. Congrats to your sister and you the new Aunt. Lord help me. Hope all is going well with you.
