Babies. Lots and lots of babies. Last weekend I had the huge privilege of being an aunt again - twice. My sister-in-law and my sister were both pregnant and due soon... and they both had their babies last weekend! Although I'm not able to see my beautiful new niece in North Carolina (congratulations, Monica and Chris!), I was able to see my sister Becky's new son - Silas Klodt Bailey. And as I happened (thanks Jesus!) to be in MN last weekend for some photo shoots, I was able to document their family's first time all together. Having done the exact same thing (in the exact same hospital room, mind you... how crazy is that?) about two years ago with little Levi's entrance into this world, I was excited to catch the wonder and excitement of the whole family.

These little girls are pros at the whole "big sister" thing by now...

And everyone was excited to see daddy.

Levi had no idea what was going on...

But insisted on holding the baby right away!

I think he already knows that they'll be best friends someday.

Now, I've told Becky this before, but its worth repeating - I want to have babies just like her. (Having a baby in 20 minutes? Makeup? Decent hair?? Yes please!)
