The Aunt
When I got married, I became an aunt to 13 great kids. All of them on my Hubby's side of the family. I am the oldest in my family. I was the first to get married. He is the youngest and all of his brothers and sisters were married and had kids by the time we tied the knot. But I never really felt like an aunt. My youngest brother was the same age as my oldest nephews. So really, it felt like I had 13 more siblings to tease and play with. I didn't feel like a REAL aunt till my sister had a baby a few months after I had Baby Girl. Of course, there are now 18 nieces and nephews on Hubby's side. But just one niece on my side. But, today that will hopefully change! My sister is headed to the hospital to (fingers crossed) have her baby! They've said it is a girl, but we'll wait for the official verdict. Last time there were some complications and it got a tad scary. Hopefully it will be smooth sailing this time. I'm gonna be an aunt again :)

I am the oldest too and none of my siblings are married yet. I also married into a family where nearly all of Tom's siblings were married. He has nephews and nieces older than him actually since he's the 12th of 13 kids!
Good luck to your sister!
