I have a niece. Brand new. The first woman in my life since my mom. I have 2 brothers. 2 nephews. 2 sons. And now. I have her. I'm buying every pink dress I see. I look at girls stuff when shopping for my boys. I want to learn how to make tutus and flowery headbands.

I'll comb her hair, play princees with her and buy her strawberry ice cream cones. I'll take her out and pretend she's my daughter. Maybe I'll love her too much. Maybe I'll buy her just too many pink dresses. 

But she's my niece. And I'm her aunt. And I'm just so happy she finally arrived into my life.
