A week or so ago I got something that most aunts only dream of. I got to spend an entire weekend with my precious little niece, Emily! I'd like to think I'm not biased when I say this but she is the cutest little 2 1/2 year old I know. I have found that this age is so great. Kids at this age are so entertaining, (mostly) potty-trained, entertain themselves, and they are such fun company! I would put Emily down for a nap a little after lunch time, and let me tell you, baby girl knows how to nap. She would sleep for like 2 hours and I halfway found myself wanting to go wake her up due to my boredom of being home alone and because I knew that some quality 'i'm halfway still asleep' cuddle time on the couch would be just around the corner. I swept my selfish desires aside and turned on just one more episode of Property Brothers and House Hunters to preoccupy my time. I just knew when she woke up, we were going to have fabulous time together watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, carving a pumpkin, and making a trip to the store to find a few things to spoil little miss Emily (because... that's what aunts are for... right?!). Well, here are a few pictures from our lovely weekend together. I even managed to capture a few of my handsome nephew, AJ, before I had to escape back to Lexington Sunday evening.
I always enjoy some good quality family time. It may help a little that these little ones are just so darn cute!
