How can I be a good aunt to my future nephew and support to my sister?

My older sister has a baby due this summer. I find it amazing and am a tiny bit anxious and happy about all the changes due soon. It's a brand new role for me, and though small, I'd like to have a good relationship with my new relative!!!!
I am 24 right now. What roles can I take/ how can I possibly be involved in the little one's life? My sister is doing fine. I'd like to help/ make things a little easier for her if I can. Right now I cannot really buy things, and supplies are taken care of for most part.
What are any things I shouldn't say or do? I know the time right after birth will be hectic. What happens in the first few years? If you've even been an aunt/uncle, what did you do in the early years of the kid's life?
