My sister is special to me. When she was born, we all were ecstatic. She was cute and chubby and looked like an apple. She has the most beautiful pair of eyes I’ve seen.

Now, she is six months old and has become quite naughty. She would lick me and sometimes beat me as well. When I lie down on the bed, she would kick me.

When she is hungry, she cries. When I make funny faces, she laughs. She tends to suck her fingers every time she gets the chance. And when I take her fingers out of her mouth, she gets angry and starts crying.

She is just adorable. I love her very much.
