Girl Power!

When I met Billy, he already had 3 nephews and 2 nieces.

Circa Christmas 2005

Fast forward a couple of years to Timothy's arrival, and the girls were outnumbered 2-1.

Summer 2008

So, when we found out that we were having a girl this time around, the girls had one thing to say: Girl Power!!

Thanksgiving 2010

And while the age difference is 6.5 and 7.5 years or so, I have high hopes for them being close.  Lyla was very happy to sit with them at Thanksgiving, even though she had refused everyone else except for me that entire day. 

Also, I have a cousin, Martha, who is about 10 years older than I am, and I've adored her from day one.  Growing up, I thought she was the most beautiful, intelligent, amazing person I'd ever met (still do!), and even though I was probably more than a little annoying at times, she always made time for me and let me tag along and hang out with her. She, her hubby & 2 boys even came up from Mexico for our wedding!

So, yes, I'm excited that the girls aren't so greatly outnumbered anymore, but mostly I'm excited that Lyla has such awesome cousins to show her the ropes of girlhood!
