My New Niece

My New Niece

I am at the hospital at the moment.

But don't worry, I am fine. I am here because my sister is pregnant.

She is here to give birth to her daughter, who is also my niece.

I am very happy. My sister is happy too, of course, my whole family is happy, but I think I am the happiest because I cannot stop smiling.

Suddenly, I hear them say my name. My family say to me that my niece is here.

I go to my sister’s room.

“We have named her Lucy,” my sister tells me.

“Hi Lucy,” I say, “Wow, you are the most beautiful baby in the world”.

“I have lots of plans for the things I want to do with you, Lucy,” I say to her.

“We can take lots of walks in the countryside, I can teach you to run very fast, and buy you ice cream as much as possible”, I tell her.

“That sounds great”, my sister tells me, “but do not teach her to ride a bike, that is my job,” she says with a smile.

“Of course not,” I reply, “You can have that job, and I can do everything else.
