Meeting Baby Emily, My New York Niece

See part 1 of my trip to upstate New York to visit my best friend and her new baby here.

I can’t believe I’ve already been back from New York for a week! I seriously miss it more and more each day… once you see these photos you’ll know why… we spent the week relaxing and cuddling on the couch with the new babe… going on walks downtown… taking baths of course… and then taking lots of photos to document little Emily in all her 3 weeks adorableness!

I love this little family of 3 and just couldn’t wait to go through the photos from the trip. Shockingly, there aren’t that many… Considering I was there for almost a whole week that is! But it was so nice to put the camera away and just enjoy life! Hope you enjoy this small glimpse into small town life from upstate New York where the fields are green and a little rain never hurt anybody!

I’ll forever cherish these little moments when Joyce was napping and Emily and I got to snuggle up… she was a big fan of all my picture taking… 🙂

We spent an evening just sitting on the porch, Emily loved looking around at the trees and birds flying by. And of course I just loved how she was so gently holding on to her mama’s arms. Ugh, so sweet.

The “maiden voyage” of the stroller… walking around town with the pups.

And of course, after bath time, I just had to take some last photos before my plane ride home.

I was so fascinated by those gorgeous eyelashes of hers. She’s just beautiful!

And then on our way out to the airport, we just had to take a photo of us girls and one of mama and baby!

Miss Emily, oh how I miss you! I’ll start sobbing if I write too much to you here… but I will sure miss seeing you growing up in person. But I am so excited to come out and see you, and of course living vicariously through photos! With parents like yours, I can only imagine the selfless, carefree, and funny Godly woman you will grow up to be.

Forever and always yours, Aunt Sam
