I Love my Baby Sister :)
« on: October 28, 2012, 04:59:20 AM »
I just felt the urge to dedicate a thread to my baby sister. Her name is Violette, she's the youngest out of us at barely two years old. She's such a bundle of joy :) Always so full of life and energetic, there is NEVER a dull moment with her. She's always getting into something, or saying something or playing something or just doing something so mind-bogglingly cute. Yet at the same time, despite her difficult tantrums, she can just melt your heart a single second later. Like the other night for example, she still sleeps in my parents' bedroom right now, so the other night I was saying goodnight to parents in their bedroom, and my sister--whom we thought was asleep--softly says in a half-asleep, little baby girl voice, "G'night, wub you Mmmes[James]". Or, yesterday I was in the living room drinking coffee, and she was on the floor playing with her toys, and she saw me take a big drink of coffee, and right when I removed the cup away from my mouth, she looks at me smiling and says "Ahhh!", imitating the sound that me and my father make after being refreshed by a drink of coffee or water.

She is also so inquisitive and takes everything into her little mind. She imitates everything she sees.  She taught herself to throw her old juice boxes and garbage into the trash can all by herself after observing the rest of us throw trash away. And after she does it everytime, she claps for herself and says 'Yay!' and gets mad if you do not congratulate her. A couple weeks ago she came along with me and my father to the hardware store, and me and my father were loading something heavy into the car (can't remember what it was) and my father lost his grip and we almost dropped the thing, and he shouted out a swear word. Two seconds later she imitates the exact word (which I won't mention) and starts smiling, clapping as if she did something good. My father felt bad afterward, lol :) And the other day she also spilled a glass of water all over the kitchen floor, and so I had to dry it up. So I got a towel and I was sitting on the floor wiping with the towel to absorb the water, and she did the cutest thing :) She got her favorite little blanket, got down to the floor and started doing the exact same thing just from observing me do it.

These are just some of the amazing things that she does. But out of everything, there is one thing she does that I love the most. Whenever she gets tired, or she has gotten in trouble by someone else in the house, she picks up her little favorite blanket (that she drags everywhere with her) and comes into my bedroom. If the door is closed she knocks on it real loud and seconds later I let her in. She enters into my bedroom, climbs up onto my bed and then has me tuck her in the blankets and turn the TV onto her favorite channel (PBS Sprout). She just stays there for hours, and enjoys being with just me. Sometimes she will even do this while I am lying down on my bed, she will climb her little self onto my bed and snuggle up next to me under the blankets and watch TV. Sometimes she even falls asleep next to me and then I fall asleep with her by me. I am the only person that she will sleep next to and just be relaxed.

Perhaps the cutest thing is when someone else comes into my room while she is there with me. She will get up from the bed and go close the door on them because she does not want them to disturb us. It is our bonding moment :). I think that I love her more than anyone else in my life. She is the only person I can truly go to whenever something is wrong and feel like I am loved. She is accepting of me at all times and is the only person that can make me feel like I am not a total loser when something goes wrong in my life or I am sad. She looks up to me, always loves me and always accepts me no matter what. Is is psychologically unhealthy that I find more security and comfort around my sister who is practically a baby than I do around peers my own age?

Either way, I just really love her. She's my little princess that I always spoil with candy, toys and affection. I don't know what I am going to do when she starts dating one day. It saddens me as I see her grow up.

Orthodox Christian girl dating? Is outrage! She should have arranged marriage with boy from old country :-p

I sure hope she becomes an Orthodox Christian. Not sure if she will or not. I'm the only one in my family, remember? Chances are she'll be raised Protestant by my parents until she's a little older and then maybe she'll want to follow in the footsteps of her brother and be Orthodox :)

I should probably start this soon. I'm thinking that when she's a little older I should start trying to convince my parents to let me take her with me to Church as much as possible so that she'll be around an Orthodox environment.

James,

What a beautiful testament of love for your little sister and what a great description of the joyful moments of innocent childhood and the learning that goes along with it.

May God grant Violette many blessed and healthy years and may she always know and appreciate the love that her big brother has for her.

Many years, my friend,

Neil

Great post James! Sounds like she has a great big brother. Continue to love her, teach her, and be there for her through good times and bad. Thanks for sharing this testament of love. :)

Though I'm reviving this post almost a year later, I just wanted to say how lovely you expressed yourself. You sound like an amazing older brother. Remember this post when you keep telling yourself how you don't want kids - you'll deprive yourself of so much love.

Great post. I read it all and thought it was really sweet. Good to have something simple and sweet in your life I think to deal with all the negatives you've mentioned, like your mother I think if I recall. You should make a YouTube video of her and post it on here.
True patriotism sometimes requires of men to act exactly contrary, at one period, to that which it does at another, and the motive which impels them — the desire to do right — is precisely the same.
