3520 Schroeder Dr. Manitowoc, WI 9/19/2013 Dear Isaiah, I just wanted to thank you for being such a great brother! The truth is, I don’t know what I would do without you. You wrestle with me, you climb trees with me, you really do everything with me. I love that about you! I am so glad we are close in age, because if we weren’t, I don’t know what I would do. I guess it does help that I am a tomboy though. But I don’t really care, because you are the best brother EVER!!!!!! It really makes me happy when you do one specific thing. You help me. And when I say help me, I am talking about when you urge me to do things that I don’t really want or care to do at the moment because of my stomach problems. I love how you urge me to do things because you like to do things and know that I will have fun doing them. With or without you. I know you care about me. And I love that. It shows me that I can trust you. Please don’t EVER change! I love you so much! You are the best brother in the whole entire Universe that I could have!!! I love you so much! ( Again! LOL! ) Again, thanks for being the best, caring, happy, playful brother EVER! No one could take your place! Not in my house! Anyway, I love you so much, so please don’t ever change! Love Ya Like a Brotha! Sincerely, Alexa
After my brother and I were born, my little sister Charlee was born. When she was born, my brother was 6 and I was 8. Now I am 13, my brother is 11, and my sister is 5. What I want to tell you about now, is how my life changed when my little sister was born. First of all, it started when my little brother(Isaiah) and I first found out about the baby. We were so excited about getting a new baby brother or sister. When we found out that the new baby was a girl, I was really happy. Isaiah was a little disappointed because he wanted another brother to play with. But he was perfectly fine with a little sister. Anyway, so after a couple months went by, my mom had to go to the hospital really early in the morning. Isaiah and I were really excited and wanted to come too. But of course it was too early and we had to go to school that day. We were really bummed by that. But we were still excited. Then, after about an hour or two after school started, the baby was born! My dad came and picked Isaiah and I up from school. Isaiah and I could not wait to see our new little baby sister! When we got to the hospital( we were at Holy Family Memorial Hospital), our grandma and grandpa were there waiting for us. When we got inside, I could smell food because the cafeteria was nearby. We had to take an elevator to the floor my mom was on. When we got to the floor, you could hear babies crying. Isaiah and I were feeling so excited. When we walked into the room, we got to see our little baby sister for the first time. It was amazing. My mom was lying in the bed and holding our little sister. We ran over to see our mom and our sister. She was so tiny and cute. There were so many thoughts going threw my head, like what would happen we my mom and sister got home and what my friends were going to say. But then one thought came to me that made me think. Was my mom going to have time for me and my brother? I kind of got a little scared. What if my mom could not play with us anymore? I did not really know what to expect because I was only 2 years old when Isaiah was born. But I let it go for now because right now, I wanted to see my little sister! Isaiah and I got to hold her. She was so small and light! My mom told us that our new sister’s name was Charlee! Isaiah and I looked at each other because that name sounded like a boy’s name. Then my mom explained how she picked it. What really surprised me was that my cousin’s girlfriend helped give birth to my little sister! It was so weird! She helped because her mom was my mom’s doctor and so her daughter, my cousin’s girlfriend(they were almost in college at the time) got to help to. It was really strange but it was so cool to see her there! She even gave Isaiah and I pins that said Big Brother and Big Sister! Anyways, the last thing that happened was that when my dad took Isaiah and I back to school, I walked into my classroom in the middle of a class. My teacher stopped teaching and was asking me questions, like, what was her name and how many pounds was she. All of my classmates wanted to see her. Today, my sister is awesome and fun to play with. My life has changed a lot because now Isaiah and I have to play with her too. Not that that is a bad thing, but since she is still somewhat little she always wants it her way and is kind of stubborn. But she is so funny and weird! My mom says she gets that from Isaiah and I. I am so glad that my mom had Charlee. Life would not be the same without Charlee! My family means the world to me and to me, my life is perfect… other than health problems, but that’s another story!
