Me and my nieces, my nieces and me

I hadn't seen my nieces for a month when I took these photos. A MONTH. Do you know how long that is in baby years??

AVA - Four Months Old


Good morning.


Ava loves this toy.






And she loves chewing on her hand. Or any hand that is...wait for it...handy.


And, oh my, does she love her mama.




She totally did this to herself.












I was so happy to see and love on my nieces.


I think my five chins scared Ava.


Look at those cheeks!


And those lips. This child is definitely one of us.


I adore this photo. I wish you could see that lower lip tremble in real life.

LATER, ON HER NEW MAT




We think she might be rabid.




She just saw her mama.






Hi, Auntie Nicole!







NOLA - Exactly One Month Old


This was Nola's preferred state. Sleeping. On my knees.


Out cold.


I can totally see Barbara in her here.


Do you know how much I kissed those cheeks?


I seriously tried waking her up.


No position seemed to work.


She started to wake up when Barbara changed her.


Can you see the absolute preciousness that is her face here?




I look ridiculous, but this is the most awake photo I have of her and me together.


Aw. This is comfortable.


So, why are you pulling me away and laying me out on your arms, Aunt Nicole?


You shall now feel my wrath.


Oh. This is better.


In fact, I think I'll go back to sleep.

And it was really great to finally see my family again, too! Funny how we don't get any photos of us together anymore. Who needs photos of adults when you have babies!
