Little One

Dear Baby Garcia-

I'm your Aunt Brittany or as your big sister and cousins like to call me "Burney" you will probably call me that too once you get big enough to talk. In a few short months you'll make your grand entrance into the world and considering you are part Bailey, it will inevitably be full of some kind of drama be it good or bad.

We just found out recently you are a girl. There is no doubt in my mind you will equal your big sister in beauty, we're hoping you outweigh her pretty quick though. Unless God has a very big sense of humor and if your cousins are any example, we hope that you are a little more mellow that your big sister. She's a sweetheart and I'm betting eventually she's going to fall in love with you as much as all of the rest of us. But since you are the youngest of the grandkid crew I'm gonna give you a little rundown to hopefully give you a step up so you don't get left behind.

First off: your big sister

This is Sydney. We all call her Ned, Sydly, among a million other names (it's a family tradition to have a million nicknames). She's pretty feisty. I'll be honest with you, she's probably not going to be your biggest fan. She eventually will love you a whole lot. She was the same with your cousins.

Which brings us to these two:

These are your cousins Jack and Luke. They are a fun duo, and they are pretty nuts about your big sister so I'm foreseeing that they are going to love you as much. They like to roughhouse, but they are also so much fun.

Plus there is all of us:

Uncle Ron-He's really funny and really awesome. Be sure to learn his name quick because your big sister learned his name last and he complained about it a lot. Plus he is really fun to tickle attack.

Favorite Aunt Brenda-she's going to be your favorite Aunt, and you will like it young lady! Brenda is amazing, she's a fantastic cook and like to tickle and listen to your little stories. She also has the most patience I've ever seen in a human being.

Uncle Jeff-He is going to LOVE teasing you and he's gonna act like you don't have him wrapped around your finger...but it's gonna happen. He'll show you lots of funny videos on his iphone. Uncle Jeff also lives on the train.

Aunt Lindsie-Or as Luke, Jack, and Sydney calls her Aunt Shoppie or Aunt Choppie. She's in the army right now being a hero (like your dad). She's pretty funny and she like to cuddle so she's going to be crazy about you. It's been a while since we've had a little one to cuddle.

We are a loud crazy group and we will probably overwhelm you when you get here but it will be because we are SO excited to see you and get to know you. We're gonna be NUTS about you.

These are obviously your parents who will love you and take care of you. They are great people! Your mommy is going to play you lots of songs and sing you lullabies and dress you up real cute. Your daddy is going to love reading your stories (sometimes with HILARIOUS commentary) plus he will spoil you rotten.

last and certainly not least is Gracky

She's extra cuddly and she really likes rocking in the rocking chair, you are going to LOVE her!

All in all, baby you are going to love being a part of this family. No matter what you do no, matter who you turn out to be, no matter what you look like, no matter what you sound like know this little one...all of us will ALWAYS love you and always be nuts about you!

As for me, I'm gonna be the Aunt that buys you the cool toys, sneaks you candy, paints your toe nails when you only a few months old. I'll be the Aunt that let's you stay up late when you sleep over. I'll be the one who sings you rock songs instead of lullabies.

Love and Kisses
Aunt Burney.
