My cousin G who lives in France visited us a few weeks ago. We made her one of Emilia's godmother and were so pleased that she made the trek to be here in person when we baptized our baby girl 2 weeks ago. You might remember her from when we attended her wedding in Paris 3 years ago. She also came to hang out with us at the airport in February when we were coming back from Cameroon. We don't get to see each other often because of the distance but we definitely try to make the most of every visit.
The one thing she really wanted to do while she was here for a week was visit New York City, you know you haven't been to America unless you visit NYC of course ;). I convinced her to make a day trip out of it and I packed baby girl and to NYC we went. Another cousin joined us on the trip to spend some quality time with G. It was an all girl's trip and it was so much fun.

As soon as we arrived in NYC, we decided to have a late breakfast before we started our sightseeing adventure. It was also a great opportunity for me to pump. I figured it would be easier and more efficient to pump rather than to try to breastfeed every hour or two.
