This morning Dave and I woke up at 3:00 a.m. We had a plane to catch. Eight hours later we were in a hospital room and I watched our brand new niece -- who was just 25 hours old -- be placed in to Dave's arms. Then I got to hold little baby Lillian.
I am smitten by this little girl. She is so beautiful. She is so innocent. She is so loved. Tonight Lillian and I got to hang out just the two of us when Diana and Ed went down to the lobby to see Edwin. She was awake and got to see my face for the first time. I asked her what the highlight of her first 1 1/2 days of life was. I told her about our flight and about her good looks. She started crying and I sang Jesus Loves Me and rocked her until she fell asleep in my arms. Today I met my niece Lillian Grace and it's a day I'll always remember.
