{ baby riley }

this weekend was a very special one, to say the least.
first of all, i got to meet my beautiful niece riley (my brother-in-law's daughter).


isn't she sweet? she's wearing the onesie and headband her aunt got her :)
i also made her a headband with a bow i crocheted.
now i just need to find a shirt that says "my auntie loves me" 
or something ridiculous like that.

unfortunately i never thought about snapping photos until
just before she left, when she was fast asleep in her car seat. silly me.
next time i see her, 
i will most likely go snap happy to make up for it. 

i still can't believe i'm an aunt.
the circumstances are certainly not ideal,
but she's a precious, beautiful baby all the same,
and i'm excited to be a part of her life :)

Oh, she's adorable! Being an aunt is the BEST! I am an auntie to almost eleven and it's SO hard being away from them!

She is a honey pie! Being an aunt is one of my most favorite things. Isn't it great?! I'd be creating headbands like crazy if I had a little girl in the family. Two little boys (my newphews) don't allow for that kind of thing, but I adore them all the same. xo
