Auntie's squish turns one!

November 12, 2013  •  1 Comment

I can remember the very moment that I was surprised with the news of becoming an auntie.  I was floored.  I was shocked.  I was down right excited.  For 7 months, I watched my sister in law's belly grow.  I saw ultrasounds.  I felt baby move.  It seemed like a never ending countdown to the day I would be able to meet him or her.  

The day came.  We got the phone call that momma was in labor.  I cried.  Oh I cried like a lunatic.  My husband laughed at me.  I guess I just couldn't believe how happy I was.  Being an auntie is an awesome gift.  An honor.  A role that is so different than a mother.  I waited until we heard the news that baby was here.  A baby girl.  Emily Grace.

I took one look at her and fell in love.  Oh she was beautiful.  With big ol chubby cheeks and hairy ears, she was perfect.  I cried some more.  I took pictures of her.  Kissed her face.  Cried some more.

Over this past year, I have become so amazingly attached to such a tiny little human.  My girls love their Emmy and we look forward to play dates and visits.  To say she is an angel baby would be an understatement.  She's always happy and calm and smiley.  Not to mention, squishy.  I could love her up every second of every day and not be tired of it.  Heck, she's made me an auntie!  I couldn't be happier.

On November, 8th, Miss Emily Grace turned one.  When I walked into their house and saw her in her little birthday tutu, I choked back the tears.  Oh she's just so darn cute!  All I can say, is that it has been one beautiful year having her in our lives.  She's got the sweetest soul and cheeks that I could smooch for days.  She's my little squish.  Oh how I love her.

These pictures and your letter are beautiful. Emily is the sweetest little gift to all of us. As lucky as we are to have this precious angel - she is pretty lucky to have you as her Auntie. Emily has amazing parents who love her to pieces. Grandmas and Grampas, aunts and uncles and of course cousins to share happy moments. Happy Birthday sweet angel. We love you!!!
