My sweet little niece, Miss EmmaRose,was born May 6, 2009 to my wonderful sister and her husband. Miss Emma was 6 lbs 5 oz and 19 inches long ~ one fine, tall and skinny thing! She is beautiful (I may be biased, but I think you just might agree). Emma has two sweet older brothers that are 2-years old. They absolutely adore her. Joseph,one of her two brothers, is so kind and gentle with her, it's as if he intuitively knows how to take care of his little sister!
I was fortunate enough to be able to go to St. Louis the week Miss Emma was born. It was wonderful to be able to spend so much time with my sister and her family. Her boys are so sweet and good!
My sister is a rock-star as far as birthing babies. She had Emma completely natural ... and when I mean natural, I mean n-a-t-u-r-a-l. No pain meds, no IV. To add the the natural birth, the lights in just my sisters hospital room when out the last 45 minutes before Emma was born. Amazing girl, my sister!
More photos of Emma and her family will come soon. I'm will be going to St. Louis in a month or so to take some family portraits! I am a very, very proud aunt!
