Today my niece turns one year old, I cannot believe that one year ago today I was at the hospital with limited time waiting for Miss Olivia to come to this world. I sadly missed the arrival, and she ended up having to come via c-section but I did eventually get to meet her while she was at the hospital with her Mommy.

From that first day I fell in love. I held this little baby and felt a love I never thought one could feel except with their own child. Now I know what my sister felt that first time I made her an Auntie. It’s such a loving emotion.

Baby Olivia

Spending time around Olivia was and still is important, while they live about 40 minutes away from me, I want nothing more than to have a niece who loves & knows who her Auntie is. I had an amazing Auntie growing up and know how important that relationship can be, secondary to the child’s parents of course. I visited and continue to visit Olivia frequently, along with my children and fiance.

Miss Ki was so happy to finally have a cousin on her Mom’s side and it was a girl so that was even better. After all, Ki only has two younger brothers – no sisters so when Olivia came into this world she was so excited!

My sister and Olivia are shown above, I have enjoyed watching my sister go from just a sister to a sister who is a mother. The changes I have seen in my sister over the past year amaze me. There are no words to describe the love I have for both Olivia and my sister, it goes deep within my heart and soul.
