I was told once by my cousin that I would have to tell her all about being an aunt.
But how is one supposed to describe the feeling?
you just love 'em.
even before they're born you love them. I would feel Kate kick against my hand while she was still growing inside, and I loved her. Without even knowing who she was. I had no idea if she was a boy or a girl, but I loved her so much. And now that she's here and she's Kate, it just makes sense. I look back and think, of course. She was always Kate. Even before we knew it.
I hold her close and hug her. And I look at her beautiful face, and my heart is full. How can one little take up so much room in my heart? Yesterday I was over at Felicity's and I was holding a sleeping Kate, her little head was tucked under my chin and it just felt. right. I want to be an aunt that Kate is proud of. but I also want to be that crazy aunt people warn you about *laughs*
Being an aunt is even better than being cousin. And I've always loved being a cousin.
I can't wait to spoil you, Katie-Girl.
