I became an aunt at the age of 18, right after I graduated high school. This was a new adventure to me and one that made my heart full. Before Cadence was born I wasn’t around many young kids, besides my siblings and cousins. Cadence taught me how to love unconditionally, and I believe that her presence in my life is what made me want to be a mother.
Parker came around a few years later. From day one that girl brightened my day with her huge smile. I can still remember her sitting up in her bassinet and when she saw me her eyes lit up and her smile just kept growing. Again, I never knew I had so much space in my heart.
Next came Madyxx, and being the first boy, he made things so exciting. My heart kept growing, and it was easy with this loveable, adorable little boy that brought so much fun into our lives.
Reese made me an aunt for the fourth time. Reese was truly a miracle, and so loved before she was even born. When she was born it was extra special, and my heart was exploding with love.
So tonight, on the 2nd day of November I am thankful for all of my nieces and my nephew. They are ornery, smart, loving, and wonderful. Each and every one of them bring so much fullness into my life, and I am so thankful for them and the future ones to come.
Tell me what you love most about being an aunt or an uncle. Would love to hear!
