Siblings {July 2015}

This month has been a lovely month for LP and Little Man. They have spent so much time together, mainly in the garden, and have loved playing together, laughing together and just being together.

All of this month’s photos were taken on our visit to the Historic Dockyard in Portsmouth which was a lovely day out. Dave and I spent the day watching the children together. It couldn’t have been better.

As each month goes by the children can play together more, they understand each other better and they learn to communicate better – sharing, taking things in turns and helping each other. Each month our lives get just a little easier as their bond grows and as they both get older.

I still remember back to this time two years ago, when Little Man was a couple of months old and we spent the summer in a blur of sleepless nights, constant feeds and exhaustion. Last year Little Man was just starting to walk and he played as much as he could but couldn’t do as much as he wanted to.

This summer Little Man is his sister’s equal. He can do most things, even talking enough to get his point across and this makes him a ready playmate, her companion and her friend.

Writing this post each month makes me realise what a special thing LP and Little Man have, especially being so close in age. I am living the future I dreamed of when I first found out I was pregnant with Little Man and it is something I will never tire of. It was worth every moment of those difficult early days just to get to this point now – siblings, equals, friends.

  1. It is so wonderful when they become friends and genuinely enjoy each others company. And, it does get easier! This summer the wee girl can really keep up with her brothers, it’s making such a difference x #siblings

  3. I loved reading this, as it makes me so excited for the future with my two. I can’t wait until they are equals, like yours are now. Though, I don’t want to wish the time away! It just must be so special and make you feel so proud seeing them play together like this! xx

  4. Great photos of your siblings together. As much as I don’t want to rush Little E, I’m really looking forward to being in this place with my children. I don’t know what happened to last summer, we survived it. This year we have a new walker so it could be fun!
