Small Wonder

This past weekend was a long weekend for us here in Canada, and it was the best three days off I have had in a long time because it was the perfect combination of work and play.  We managed to accomplish a great deal at home, inside and out, enjoyed some relaxation time, and also went to see Godzilla at the theatre (awesome movie by the way) and spent Sunday night at the casino.

However, best of all was going to see Mike’s new baby niece.  She is so adorable that I wanted to steal her and bring her home, but for some reason they wouldn’t let me, so I had to be satisfied with snapping around 100 photos of little Emily. I’m not sure her parents would be comfortable with me splashing photos of her on the internet, so instead I’m going to share with you some closeups that I am really quite pleased with considering I don’t have a macro lens. For years my photos were composed by standing back to get the “whole picture”, but now I really enjoy zooming in to get the little details.

    Owhh! The little leg with the cutie giraffe pjs and the little hands and nawwwwwwwwww, so cute. 😀 Great close ups, Cindy, and I’m glad the film was good too!

    • Thanks Becky. She is just so adorable that I can’t stop taking pictures of her :). And yes, the movie was great – good old fashioned monster movie but with way better special effects than they used to have.

    Those 2nd and last photos are particularly cute. It’s not until we see a newborn’s hands (or toes) against an adult that we really appreciate how tiny and precious they are.

    There’s nothing so poignant as hand-in-hand with a little one. You’ve done a beautiful job here, Cindy!

    • Very true, and thank you Gary :). I’m so glad you liked them. What evoked really bizarre feelings was watching both my sons hold her. They are both big men, and it made me shake my head in wonder thinking that it wasn’t all that long ago that they were that small. At least it doesn’t seem that long ago LOL!
