My oldest niece, Brittany Marie, is 16 today.
I was so excited about becoming an aunt for the first time. I waited at the hospital for hours the night before you were born, not realizing that labor and delivery can take awhile.
The next day when I saw you in the nursery, I remember thinking, that can't be MY niece, she's all wrinkly and icky looking. You were beautiful, but I was an egostical 18 year old with very limited exposure to babies.
You are a genuinely wonderful person and I am SO proud to call you my niece and Cameron's Godmother.
Happy 16th Birthday Brittany! I love you.
