Even though my husband's siblings have multiple children (read 5 total) and I have been an aunt, through marriage, for years and years now; my sister just had a baby. Born at 32 weeks 5 days, weighing 4lbs 13oz, baby Emma Joy joined us at 8:02am TODAY! BIG Congratulations to my sister and her hubby!
To become the best auntie that I can, I thought it would be good to check out The Aunt's Book. This is a book, as it states right on the front, for the Aunt who is best at everything. Well, if that doesn't describe me to a T, then I don't know what does :)
