Dear Nephew...

Dear Nephew,

I can't wait to meet you.

What is it like in there?  Is my sister's uterus as spotless as her house?  No doubt it is.  She's a neat freak.  I will warn you now...even though you may not be able to lift you head on your own for a few months, you will still be expected to clean up after yourself.  I hope you know how to load a dishwasher too.  Did you know there is a proper way and a not proper way to load a dishwasher?  Your mommy will show you how, just like she showed your Dad how too. 

I hope you don't plan on liking Sesame Street or monster trucks or anything in the "camo" color family.  Your mommy has other plans for you and your wardrobe.  Do you like J.Crew and Baby Gap?  Are you a fan of Pottery Barn?  I sure hope so.  My sister is very picky...she may return you for a different model should you be more inclined towards the "monster truck" persuasion.  Also, I hope you don't plan on wanting a go-cart one day...your mommy says "Over my dead body"...and I know you don't know what that means, but it means "No." 

Coco (grandma) can't wait to meet you.  She calls your aunt Taryn and your mommy every day while they're at work to talk about what your name will be and what your room will look like.  Here's what your aunt Taryn likes:

What will you look like?  Will you have blonde hair like your mommy or blue eyes like your dad and Coco?  Will you like dogs?  I hope so because Grizz will be your best friend...and he's a good cuddler I suspect.

Don't you know how much your Auntie T already loves you?  I am making lists of all the things I wants to buy you and all the things I want to teach you...

Do you know that you have the best big brother waiting for you too?  I bet he will be your best friend and your protector, and someone you look up to.  Just wait...you'll see.

Did you know that your mommy has given up wine for you?  That's kind of a big deal...but...I have a sneaky suspicion that she doesn't mind all that much.  I have a sneakier suspicion that she loves you more than anyone, even though you've never met, except maybe in a dream somewhere...

Please come soon, nephew. 


Aunt Taryn
