New baby in the family, kind of.

My Godbrother had a baby. The Godbrother is a rare family relaionship that most people don't know about. Generally because it doesn't show up on most family trees. In my situation however, my parents had some really good friends and were chosen to be the Godparents of Kyle. We were always invited to famliy functions and they were always invited to our family functions. Kyle is one of four kids, and all four of them are like cousins to me. Kyle is my Godbrother. Yesterday his wife gave birth to Ashlynn. I love the name, it's so close to my own daughter's name of Adylynn. Only one letter different. Here's a quote from the Grandma seen here holding my precious GodNiece.

"Daughter of Kyle and Nikki Hampton (granddaughter of Regina and Jim Hampton) was born today, Monday, November 13th at 10:43 a.m. Ashlynn is 8 lbs. 9 oz., 20 1/2 inches. Everyone is doing just fine! Jim and I saw Ashlynn Janelle when she was 1 1/2 hours old. We think she is beautiful and that we are blessed to have our children and grandchild! Take a look at the picture of me and Ashlynn."

At the same time, that family continues to have good news. Kyle's brother Kory asked his girlfriend Corel to marry him and she said yes. It's a long term engagement. He's in the marines and she's going to school for a doctorate; the wedding is being planned for September 2009. I guess that gives me enough time to make sure I can get there.
