I knew it from the start so my arms are open wide

I knew the very first time I held you.

That very first day in the hospital.

I knew you were special.

I knew I would love you forever.

You are my first niece.

We are linked by blood.

A piece of my heart will forever be yours.

You make me so excited to have babies of my own.

I knew you'd be sassy and I knew I would love it.

I also knew the first time I met you that you had come straight from Heavenly Father.

I could feel it. An overwhelming sense of love.

You are so loved.

I hope you never forget that because when you get big that is sometimes an easy thing to forget.

Never forget Rylie. You are so loved.


One more thing you should know....

I will always attack you with kisses.

Every time I see you.

No matter how old you are.

Because yes Rylie I am THAT aunt.

Don't you forget it.
