Welcome to the world, baby boy.

The whole pregnancy, I told my brother and sister-in-law they were having a girl. They didn’t want to find out until the baby was born, but, since I found out last October I’ve been hammering in their ears that it’s a girl. I was certain it was going to be a girl.


I must’ve annoyed him a hell of a lot with my ‘it’s a girl’ bantering because one of the first things he did was take a picture of the baby’s penis to send to me to show me it was a boy. hahahaha!

My little brother’s a dad, now. I couldn’t be more happy for him, for them and their beautiful new little family.

Welcome to the world, baby girl.

The day: May 2, 2019

The time: 10:52 pm.

The location: Esberg, Denmark.

To the beautiful, brown haired, blue eyed baby girl who turned my brother from dude to dad, I love you already. I know he is going to spend his whole life chasing, protecting and admiring all that you are. And I know you’re going to be powerful beyond measure. He will raise you to always speak you mind, follow you heart and to live without fear.

Today is day one of a beautiful life. Your strong, fierce, monumentally intelligent mother will provide you everything you need to become whatever and whoever you want to be.

If I can give you one thing in this life, baby girl, I will remind you:

You will put the win in win some… lose some
You will put the star in starting over and over.

And no matter how many landmines erupt in a minute
be sure your mind lands on the beauty of this funny place called life.
And yes, on a scale from one to over-trusting, I am pretty damn naive.

But I want you to know that this world is made out of sugar.
It can crumble so easily.
But don’t be afraid to stick your tongue out and taste it.

Baby girl, I’ll tell you, remember your mama is a worrier
and your papa is a warrior. And you’re the girl with small hands and big eyes who never stops asking for more.

It’s a brand new day and a brave new world and they are both beautiful. Welcome to the world, baby girl.

All my love, Auntie Vee.
