My family fills my heart to overflowing...
my "little" brother (who is 6'2" and over 30yrs old) and his beautiful, sweet wife
just had their first baby this last weekend.
Her name is Elisabeth...isn't that so beautiful?!
She looks exactly like a mix of her daddy and her mommy.
I just have fallen in love with her already. My kids were in awe of how tiny she was, and especially Emma was taken with her.
I got to cuddle her up and kiss her little head.
I was just looking up the word "family" and realized that it is related to the word "familiar" - so I looked up "familiar" in the thesaurus, and here is what I read:
familiar, intimate, knowing, versed, well-known;
accessible, affable, amicable, approacable,
casual, close, comfortable, courteous, easy,
friendly, informal, sociable, unconstrained, unreserved;
common, customary, usual.
and I couldn't help but feel these things about my brother's family and my family...we are familiar, in all these ways...it is beyond comforting to know that this little family is so familiar...especially with this new little baby!! Auntie Katie never sounded so good!
Congratulations to the new mommy and daddy!!
