A Letter To My Lily-Bear

A Letter To My Lily-Bear:

Happy birthday to you, Lily bear! I am typing this and I am in awe that you are already 2 years old today. Didn’t I just meet your little face for the first time? I always knew that you would mean a lot to me, but when you arrived, I couldn’t believe just how much I loved you. From the moment I saw your tiny little hands and looked in to your little eyes, you had me.

The overprotective love that I felt for you surprised even me. I know without a doubt that I love you the same that I will love my own children. I will always love and care for you as if you were my own child, no matter the day, the time, or the phase of life.

Being your aunt has shown me what real unconditional love is. I can’t imagine how my life was without you–I didn’t know what I was missing. Watching you grow and learn and explore has been such a joy. You continue to amaze me and melt my heart even more. Just when I think I couldn’t love you any more, I look up at your little face and I feel my love grow and expand.

No matter what paths our lives take, I will always be there for you. I hope this birthday is filled with excitement and fun. Thank you for letting me be your Aunt; it’s been my favorite role so far <3 I can’t wait to see what new things you learn this upcoming year and what fun things we will do together.
