I agree you should talk to your mom, but if it doesn’t go how you would prefer, it may also help to think of the some of the pieces going to your brother’s family and possibly someday his daughters, not to an outsider.

I do feel for you, my younger brother’s girlfriend has been in our family for about the same time as yours, and my mom does consider her a daughter at this point and spends considerable more time with her than I get to because of distance. There have been times when I feel a bit on the outside because she has taken on some of our family traditions that I don’t get to always be a part of anymore, like an annual berry picking and jam making session. It’s not easy but I’ve had to remind myself that she is family now, and I should be thankful she appreciates and participates in such things.
