Baby Savannah

I have much on my mind as a result of our camp in the village last week- and I will make some space here to process that soon....but in the mean time I need to brag on my baby niece who decided to make her appearance into the world 3 weeks early (of course while I was away from all forms of communication in a village and had no idea-- I came home to the exciting news!)

This is the first baby girl in our family so it was very exciting to anticipate her arrival.  While I was home  I got to attend 3 baby showers for my sis-in-law-- one of which my mom and I threw together. And since this baby has to know where her Auntie spends most of her time-- I decided that the theme should be no other than Matryoshka dolls! Yep-- it was a down right matryoshka doll fest--complete with a take a way doll for everyone! It was a lovely afternoon of celebrating my beautiful sis-in-love, Heather :)

 I was also able to take some maternity shots for them to capture their last few weeks as a family of three and their anticipation of meeting baby girl.  I'm trying to work on my photography skills lately- so they were willing to be my subjects!

And here is how she looks on the outside....when she made her appearance on August 24th! Welcome to the world Savannah are already so loved!  It's moments like these that make it hard being so far away from home...

Savannah and Nana 

the proud Auntie,
