Siblings {February 2017}

This month has been such a lovely month. Well, it’s been full of house chaos, plastering and a sickness bug but the children have, aside from that, had a lovely month together.

We have had so many little adventures this month. Nothing big just days in the garden, trips to soft play and out to see friends. It has been a month of togetherness and one that LP and Little Man have really enjoyed.

Siblings {January 2017}

I am so happy this month to be not only joining in with Siblings for another year but also co-hosting it. It’s a linky I’ve loved since it started – when Little Man was just a few months old. It’s one of the things that keeps my blog focused on the children, their milestones and their relationship and I’m honoured that Lucy has asked me to be part of the Siblings team this year.

Siblings {December 2016}

I can’t believe it’s our last Siblings post of the year. I’ve loved documenting the children growing together and this year – although they don’t look massively different to last January – they have both grown and learnt so much.

This year has been the best year yet for LP and Little Man. They have been able to play together, they can share toys and they even share clothes at times – they are practically the same size. This year they have been each other’s shadows and it has been a great year to watch.

Siblings {November 2016}

This month has flown by – again. I think once you have children each month just rolls into the next and life seems to be on fast forward. But, this month the children have spent quite a lot of time together and since leaving my day job I’ve been able to spend a lot more time with them too. It’s been a pretty good month.


November really is all about wooly hats, wrapping up warm, having autumn adventures and spending time at home, snuggling, watching movies and drinking hot chocolate. November is always a bit of a gap fill month – with none of the bright colours and things of October and not quite Christmas but it is still one of my favourites.



We have spent November relaxing, doing crafts, breaking out the Christmas movies, seeing friends and having simple fun. It’s been a lovely month, one of warmth, togetherness and enjoying just the basic things in life. It’s been a pretty ordinary month really – having our extension started, buying Christmas presents and singing songs together.

November – you have been nice. A really nice month – and we now have December to look forward to!

Siblings – {October 2016}

This month has gone by in a blur and looking through my photos from the month I can see, easily, how life has changed in just a month. With Little Man now being at preschool, he and LP don’t spend as much time together at all – and after school they are both too exhausted for any big adventures.

Because of that we haven’t taken any photos this month and instead I’ve had to use some review photos that were literally the only photos of the children together that I’ve taken in the whole of the last month.


LP and Little Man now relish their time together and always make a point of kissing and hugging whenever they’ve been apart. They love having their own time but they love to have time back together again too.


We are all looking forward to half term, where we can have proper time together again. This term has felt like a long one – especially with Little Man’s new routine – and we all need a break from it. But it hasn’t been bad, just busy and something we have all had to get used to.

Hopefully the next month will bring lots more opportunity for photos and some outings where LP and Little Man can spend some time together. I will do better next month!
