Can you love even family before meeting them?

Yes!! I believe you can. What do you think?

I am an only child, and in my early childhood years I was the only grandchild and niece as well. I was loved and spoiled.

When I was 8, my Aunt had her first baby and then at 10, she had her second. I was all of a sudden, not the only kid around. I had to share my stuff with the babies and of course the babies got more attention than I did too. It was a huge adjustment for me as a kid.

Ohhhh, but I sure did LOVE those babies. In the summer I would go to my Aunt’s during the day. I would watch Disney movies and read books and play with Mikki (she was 3 and 4) and I would get to play with and feed and change my baby cousin. She was perfect. I loved it. My 2 baby cousins and I had some great summer days.

A little side story – I did tell my cousin this story a few years back but I have never really told anyone else…. so to my family,…if you are reading this, it was 20 years ago and I was a child. Please do not get upset! 

Anyway, when it was nap time on some of those days I would lay in bed with Mikki and read books while my other cousin was asleep in her crib. My Aunt would go out and cut the grass and I just couldn’t stand it, I wanted that baby to wake up and play so bad. So what I would do was sneak in her room and start trying to wake her up. I would move her all around, a little nudge and maybe a little hair tug. (Sorry Cuz) Then when she started to stir I would run away and wait for her to cry to be taken out of the crib. I loved going in there and getting her out of that crib when she woke up from her nap! I loved it!

So here we are 20 years later and that beautiful baby I loved so much has grown up and she has now had her own beautiful baby. And I love her already! I haven’t met her yet, but I sure do love her!

Yes, she’s wearing a robe! I just about died when I saw this picture. I have never seen a robe for infants. I am pretty sure I have never seen anything more cute. I like the robe better than a frilly little dress. I really do!

Are you as close with your family as I am? Do you have 2nd cousins? Do you think you can love someone before meeting them? What if it’s family?
