Being an aunt is a role I’ve been honored with since the age of nine. Yep, nine. I’ve been blessed to watch six beautiful children grow (and continue to grow) into amazing adults. I’ve seen countless recitals, ball games and Disney movies over the years. I’ve changed diapers and bathed, baby-sat, fed and rocked them. I’ve been a taxi, an ear, a shoulder, a voice of reason, a counselor, a personal paparazzi, an employer, a cheerleader and a prayer warrior for each of them. I’m so thankful for the opportunities I’ve had and will continue to have as their Auntie H and will continue to be there for them no matter what.
All of that to say, it’s exciting to watch my oldest niece be a loving, amazing mother. And it’s exciting to now be a Great Aunt! Sweet, serious Mason has brought so much joy to our family and here are a few of my faves from his 2-year session.
Love these sweet mother/son moments:
