I'm your Aunt Gina!!! Your mommy and I met when we were freshmen in high school. Oh, the fun times we had! One day, when you're bigger, you're going to have so many laughs as I tell you of all the trouble we'd get into as teens.
But we've got plenty of time for that, don't we? You're just a wee little thing nestled up in your mommy's tummy. Oh, but Little Reese... how much you are already loved!!!
Little Reese, you're probably wondering... why am I calling you such a strange name? Well, way back when, your mommy's nickname was Reese, pronounced "REE-SEE" (just like the candy). Nowadays, the only one to really call her that is Vince, my little boy. So since she's "Aunt Reesa" to Vince, I figure you can be Little Reese to me - at least until mommy and daddy settle on a name for you.
So, Little Reese, I'm excited to finally be getting the chance to write to you! I've been besides myself with anticipation and joy ever since hearing the news that you were coming! In fact, as soon as mommy told me, we were both so filled with happiness that the joy came spilling out of us in big, fat tears! I immediately stooped down to kiss you through her belly. I've been doing it ever since! So if you think I'm affectionate now, just wait until you get the avalanche of kisses I have planned when I hold you in my arms for the first time.
Oh, I can hardly wait to meet you! Already the family is aflutter with excitement - you are bringing so much happiness! You're the little princess your grandmom was hoping for! And your mommy... she's going to be deliriously happy decking you out in all the pinkest, frilliest, princess-iest looking things she can find, no doubt. And if you're anything like your momma, you'll enjoy ever second of it.
And ya know what, Little Reese? I've got a surprise... you and me? We're going to be doing something very, very special together. You see, your mommy asked me to be your godmother. That means I get to be there when you become one of God's little princesses. It also means I get to share all the wonderful, beautiful and blessed parts of our faith with you. I'm going to take you to see incredible art, I'm going to tell you fascinating stories, and above all, I'm going to always be there to remind you how special you really are... how much you're loved by God and how important you are to His plans for the world.
You and me, Little Reese... we're going to have so much fun together. I cannot wait to meet you!!! Already you are loved beyond measure.
