You've likely accomplished a ton in your adult life thus far. Landing your dream job, moving to a city you love with your best friends, and scoring the sweetest person to spend your life with? Check and mate. But when your sibling brings an adorable niece or nephew into the world, you take on the coolest role yet. You become an aunt and someone who, without a doubt, needs captions for becoming an aunt.
After all, documenting and sharing the moment you meet your new little one for the first time is #necessary. The pictures, selfies, and video clips you take will end up in scrapbooks and Facebook albums so you can look back on them whenever you please. Down the road, when your niece or nephew is more grown and adventuring with you to parks, malls, and all kinds of sights around your city, you'll likely show them the pics so they can see what your first memory of them is. That's the beauty of pictures — pausing a moment in time and allowing it to live on forever.
Of course, you don't have to post the pictures you take on Instagram or any social media outlet for that matter. But it can be a fun way to keep track of your memories and most incredible moments as an aunt. Here are 30 captions that'll be perfect for stepping into your new role. (Sleepovers, play dates, and endless babysitting await.)
