The joys of being a first-time Uncle

For months and months, my whole family was waiting in anticipation for my sister Haley’s first baby. I was excited, but I didn’t really know what to expect. It was hard for me to imagine what a new baby in the family would be like, as we haven’t had one in our immediate family since my brother was born in 1990. Uncle Adam had a nice ring to it, but what kind of uncle would I be to Kacey? While many of these questions are still unanswered, I must say that the first 10 days of me being an uncle have been both proud and exciting for me. My sister and her husband have invited me over to see Kacey and I’ve jumped at every chance to hold her. At first I was pretty nervous to go anywhere near her as she is so tiny and delicate, but I think I’m much better now.

I want Kacey to think of me as a cool, fun, caring uncle to her. Although she probably won’t remember these last 10 days with me, I know that I will never forget them.

    You are one heck of a great uncle in the first 10 days and I know that you will continue to be always. I can see the glow in both of your eyes when you are together.
