Sorry to all of you who only have brothers and can't relate, but there is quite literally nothing like growing up with a sister. She's seen you at every turn—from your unfortunate middle school phases (I see you, ex-vsco Girls), to your biggest, most awe-inducing moments (Prom! Graduations! Weddings!). And most importantly, she's definitely talked sh*t with you about your parents, your ex, and that one friend she never liked anyway.

Sure, you've had your fair share of fights (that have somehow become inside family jokes, ofc), but that never stopped y'all from stealing sharing each other's clothes, makeup, accessories and...personalities. All that to say, she's irritating, yes, but you can't imagine life without her, and wouldn't want to. So when her born day comes around, you just gotta lavish her in every ounce of your love—starting with a good ol' Instagram caption.

If you're the older sib, you probably can't believe your baby sister is all grown up. And if you're the younger sibling, you're likely making fun of her for being old (even though you'll secretly always think of her as your Cool Big Sister). Either way, it's time to wax poetic about your sis. From funny birthday captions to sweet ones, these birthday wishes for your older or younger sister are perfect. Of course, if you realllly wanna be the best sister ever, you'll also grab her a thoughtful gift that she'll totally love (and you can hold it against her so she'll also get you one when your bday rolls around hehe 😈).
