We haven’t met yet, but I can tell you right now, I will always have your back. Being an aunt is an honor, and your older sisters have taught me much about love, joy and the value of fun. You are my first nephew and I can’t wait to explore the world with you! I still have much to learn, and I’ve found that children model more lessons and values than any college professor.
I promise to always listen to you, whether it’s noises and gurgles or a chat about your adventures in school. I will sit on the floor and play, even when I’m busy or tired. I will take you on special trips to stores and restaurants. I will run outside with you and take you with me on walks in the neighborhood. I will teach you all you need to know about dogs. I will catch bugs with you. I will learn the names of trees and flowers with you. I will hug you and hold you in my lap. I will love you. Always.
Love you more than the whole wide world,
“Only an aunt can give hugs like a mother, keep secrets like a sister, and share love like a friend.”
