Probably the only person whom I can't imagine my life without was born today 12 years ago. My life changed that Tuesday night. No longer was I the youngest. I was now a middle child and an older sister. 

Now I wasn't happy about being replaced, at least at 9 that's what it felt like. Like I'm being replaced by this cuter, younger person who would take mom and dad away from me. The idea gradually grew on me but it wasn't until he was actually here that I accepted that I no longer was their baby. They had a new one. And damn was the chubbster cute as hell. 

It didn't take long before the chubby, happy, silly baby wiggled his way into my heart and took root. Being 9 years older than this little human made it more fun then I would have imagined possible. Suddenly he was my own life size doll who fit into my play stroller. He was all giggles and everything I hadn't realized I needed. 

Back then I never thought we'd be so close. A 9 year age gap is pretty huge. Luckily for us it doesn't even seem to matter. In our case I think it works out perfectly. We both got exactly what we needed in each other without even knowing it. 

Now 12 years later he's become an even bigger part of my life then I ever thought. He's not just my little brother but he's my friend. My best friend. Not only do I love him but I like him. We don't get to choose our siblings but this one I'd choose a thousand times and then some. 

I don't know if you'll see this Chacho, but I'd like to thank you for being you. Now your the most annoying little person I've ever met. You push and push then push even more. You get me. I love how no matter what I say or how much I try to push you, you come back and cling on even more. Your face is probably one of my favorite faces along with those hairy knees of yours. 

If I haven't said it to you already your pretty amazing. You always have been and you always been. You were a great baby, a pretty cool kid and now your a preteen. There so many stages ahead of you that I can't wait to watch you go through. I know you'll be able to handle it but if it ever gets too much know I have your back. I always have and I always will. That'll never change.

God you've grown up so much. Your so big. Your this little human with such a personality, a sense of humor and the greatest head on your shoulders. I like to joke around with you and tell you how lucky you are to have me but the truth is I'm the lucky one. I'm lucky enough to be a part of your life. To be able to watch you grow and become this awesome person. I'm proud of you Chacho. Thanks for choosing me as your big sister. 

Love you always,
