A Letter to My Niece
A while back my sister sent me a blog post from Her View From Home titled "You're an Amazing Aunt". And while reading it, I honestly teared up a little. So even though my sweet Ella Anne did not actually write that post to me I wanted to write her one back.
My sweet niece,
I never knew how much love my heart could hold until I met you for the first time. You are the most beautiful precious little thing imaginable. From the moment you were born I just knew that my life was forever changed by your presence.
You're beautiful like your mama and smart like your daddy. But trust me, you got plenty of traits from me too (*insert winky face*).
I cannot wait to help you learn to style your hair and let you play in my makeup even though mama and daddy say no - what they don't know won't hurt them!
I promise to keep you safe. To adore you with everything I have. To pray for you. To make you feel special when you feel anything but. You're my favorite kid in the world.
You are so special to me and I cannot wait to be a constant cheerleader in your life. You're gonna move mountains baby girl and I will be right there to support you no matter what. I will always be there for you when mama and daddy just don't cut it.
I will teach you all about designer handbags and shoes and how any ole bag just won't do. I'll take you to get your nails done and teach you how to pamper yourself like the queen you are.
I will be there for every school dance, graduation, and any and all events in between. You are so so loved baby girl by not just me, but everyone around you.
I cannot wait to see what you become.
