A while back I had told my sister that if she ever wanted to write something for our blog she could…she didn’t say much about that but yesterday Annie and I get an email from Heather and below is what she had attached. After reading it, and openly weeping, I asked her if we could post it on here and she agreed to it.
A letter to my nephew…
July 12, 2012
Hello, sweet boy!
I am your Aunt Heather (your daddy’s sister) and I can’t wait to meet you! I’ve known your dad from the day he was born and I can honestly say I have never been prouder of him than in the last several years of his life. He has grown into such a remarkable person…special enough to get your mom’s attention and convince her to spend her life with him. Your mom is pretty special, too. The sister I never had. You are such a lucky little boy to be brought into this world by two people who have made such an amazing connection together and have nurtured an amazing “family” network where they live and online.
You are such a blessing – after a miscarriage in their first pregnancy, you came right along to fill the void that was left. Your mom and dad decided to tell me and your cousin, Carissa, and Nana when we were all together in Indian Wells in March 2012. On March 15, your mom and dad drove down from Paso Robles to spend a few days while Carissa and I were in town visiting Nana. As they were unpacking their laptops for an online wine tasting (mom was sipping and spitting), your dad pulled out ultrasound pictures of YOU! We were so excited to see some of your first pictures and to know that we would have you here sometime in October 2012. There was some excited screaming, tears and bug hugs all around!
Since March, I have been enjoying all the opportunities to watch you grow – from ultrasound pictures to livestream 3D ultrasound video to pictures of your mom. And I can’t wait to finally hold you in person, hopefully in November!
I get teary eyed and emotional every time I think about you and what a joy you will be to your parents and their extended family. I hate that I live so far away from you, but since your mom and dad are so into social media and online stuff, I know I will be able to keep up with all your doings! I look forward to the times when I can come visit you or you and your parents can come to Texas to explore the wide open spaces here.
You are so loved, Little Browne!
Aunt Heather (or Auntie Hezzy, not sure what’s going to stick when you learn to talk)
P.S. I wish you the moon and the stars and anything else your little heart desires, but remember that nothing in this world is free…work hard, take time to enjoy life and live your dreams, sweet boy! I love you!

Love the letter Aunt Heather! How lucky is Little Browne to have family like yours! The love is so evident. I know Little Browne will be surrounded by love, laughter, tenderness and lullabies !!! and that is all we could ever wish for a child!
@Jeannette Baer That is truth Jeannette! I’m not sure what happens with some parents…maybe life stresses them out, but if you can show up everyday and give a child love (and of course teach them, discipline, etc) the possibilities are endless. Cheers Jeannette!
@Jeannette Baer Thanks, Jeannette! He will be so loved by family (in all it’s definitions)!! As his Aunt, it will be amazing to watch him grow and thrive in the community built by Hoot-n-Annie!
@dabarlow Thank you Denise, I appreciate that. Lucky to have my sis! #LittleBrowne #Family #Love #Life
@hmdearborn Cheers sister!!! Hope you’re having a great day!! #LittleBrowne #Family #Love #Life
@MatthewLiberty My work day is done so it’s much better!
@hmdearborn I can imagine!!
I found the little browne site after a social media influencer called Matt told me about it. Amazing I have not heard of this site before. : – ) So little man. I am here to say your Auntie knows how to rock a letter. You dad knows how to rock a tweet and your mum I have not had the privilege of getting to know but she has to be special to be have you as son. I hope you read this one day. It is not easy being a dad or a mum. So help them out arrive on time, healthy and bright eyed. I will be waiting to greet your mum and dad on the big day and celebrate with them. It is a honor to be a father and mother and I know you will bless them and your Aunty with your love.
@KRLRose Kenny, my friend, you are a rock star man!! You are and always have been awesomely straight forward and eloquent! Cheers and thank YOU very much!!
