Just call me Auntie Em

March 19th, 2010

My dear friends Steve and Eva are 1st-year university sweethearts. We all lived on the same floor in residence… I can’t believe it’s been 15 years since we all met, and how adult-like we all are now (pffft!).

Three years ago, when they were expecting their first baby, Steve told me they were going to name her Emily if she was a girl. I gave a nonchalant “Oh, that’s nice!”, not wanting to presume anything. He said something like “Uh, after you, ya dummy!” I think I emitted something like “Wheeeeee!!!!!” while kicking my feet wildly. Their firstborn turned out to be a beautiful boy, whom they named Nate.

Fast forward two and a bit years to this past Tuesday, and along comes Steve and Eva’s lovely baby #2: Emily. I went over yesterday to take some photos, and the one above is one of my favourites.

Here’s one of Nate, giving his little sis a bisou:

I couldn’t be more elated, proud or honoured right about now.

StEva, I love you guys, man… and you sure do make cute babies!

good peeps, in the memory bank , , , ,

    What FANTASTIC news – whoohooo! Congrats Steve and Eva … she is exquisite! And I love that photo of big bro Nate giving her a kiss – so adorable :) Hope to meet her soon.

    Oh my goodness, that first photo just makes your heart melt! Congrats to everyone in this new baby’s life. :)

    Do they EVER! She’s a honey. Wee Emily is a carbon copy of Nate a couple years ago. Love that little mouth. I’ll bet since that photo she’s begun to wink out Eva’s feminine charms and her namesake’s joie de vivre.
