Jessa (Duggar) Seewald‘s newborn met her sister Jill (Duggar) Dillard’s 7-month-old son Israel via video chat Wednesday.

“Izzy got to FaceTime his cousin today!” Jessa’s husband Ben Seewald tweeted along with a screenshot of the babies’ adorable interaction.

Jessa, 23, and Ben, 20, welcomed their first child, a boy, last Thursday.

“I can’t believe he’s really ours,” the TLC reality star tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “It is so amazing. He’s a miracle.”

Jill, husband Derick Dillard and baby Israel live far from her expansive family’s home state of Arkansas while they are on a mission trip in Central America, but they still sent their well wishes to Jessa and Ben.

“Y’all are great parents already! May you raise this little guy in the love and admonition of our Lord,” Derick, 26, wrote on Instagram last week. “May you raise this little guy in the love and admonition of our Lord.”
