Now here’s a big sister who really, really wishes her brother would stay a baby forever.
In a heartwarming and adorable YouTube video that has millions of views since it was posted, 5-year-old Sadie sobs uncontrollably as she explains to her parents and the camera why she does not want her 3-month-old baby bro, Carson, to grow up.
“Oh you’re so cute,” Sadie says through her tears as she hugs Carson gently. “I love your little smiles. Oh my gosh, I want him to stay little!”
Also, Sadie really, really doesn’t want to grow up herself! She wails that she does not want to “die when she is a hundred.”
The video was posted by Alex Miller, Sadie’s uncle. He told reporters that Sadie has “a flair for anything dramatic.” The Arizonian family also has a 3-year-old daughter named Brooklyn, but it’s still unknown how she feels about Carter growing up or how Sadie feels about her little sister getting older.
“Sadie has had kind of a naive understanding of growing up and getting old (we’re still not sure where she got the concept of dying at the age of 100) from an early age,” Sadie’s dad, Ryan, said via an e-mail sent from the uncle. “She’s cried about not wanting to get older herself in the past, but this was the first time she was upset about her brother. The funny thing is that this was totally out of the blue—we have no idea what prompted it.”
