i have officially become one of those crazy aunts...

~ "so nice to meet you, too." ~ 

...who is head over heels over her niece and cannot stop taking pictures of her. she moves a centimeter and i run for the camera. so if you have not been stalking my instagram or my facebook already (where i may or may not have been posting a zillion and one pictures), here is one of my all time favorites from the weekend. it's a picture of the first time i held my niece and we took a good long, freakingly adorable look at each other.

so if you have not met her yet: look out, world. this is my gorgeous niece, Lux Ann who made her appearance into the world at 10:13pm on June 21st, 2013 at 20 3/4 inches long and at 6 lbs and 10 oz. we are all over the moon, head over heels in love with this girl, who is an absolute gift from God - and you can betcha, i have even more thoughts and pictures to share from this momentous weekend. i cannot wait to show her off but for now, i'm off to snuggle with my niece! 

much love.
{happy monday, friend.}

  9. When my nephew was born it was almost 3 months early and I made if from NH to CO within 10 minutes of him being born. It was such an amazing feeling being in the room with my sister. I am totally one of those crazy aunts, skype and package sending are weekly for me!
