Siblings {September 2016}

This month has been such a lovely month for LP and Little Man. It was still pretty full of summer holiday-ness, days out and family time. We squeezed so much into the holidays this year and really made the most of every minute.

LP and Little Man have been living in each other’s pockets, doing the same things, playing the same games and singing the same songs. They are like two peas in a pod and as each month goes by I am amazed at just how close they are. They couldn’t get any closer if they tried.

But, this month LP has gone back to school and Little Man has been by himself again. I would say he’s been pining for her – but he hasn’t. He’s loved having our undivided attention, playing exactly what he wants and doing his own thing although he does love it when she comes home again in the afternoon.

On Monday Little Man starts nursery and LP will know no different – he’ll be dropped off after she starts school and picked up before she comes home but I know that, going forward, they will both have so much more to talk about. They’ll be able to not only go on their adventures together but also tell each other about the adventures they have gone on by themselves too.

This month so much is changing for LP and Little Man, but so much is the same too. They are both going into the education system, both now have swimming lessons and both will have time away from Dave and I regularly. It’s a big month for LP and Little Man but one I know they will take in their stride.

For me, it’s nice to see them growing, to watch them taking these next steps and progressing and even though they now have their own school days and their own swimming lessons it’s nice to see them together again afterwards, talking about their day, having a cuddle and only realising at that point that they missed the other one when they weren’t there.

  1. Oh that’s really nice to read, I take heart from the fact that your little one isn’t missing his big sister now he’s used to her being in school. Lia is heartbroken that Libby’s not there every day, hopefully she’ll get over it as she gets used to it.

  2. They are so cute together, 2 peas in a pod. A big month for Little Man, I think he will love his new adventure. I hope that Holly gets used to Alice being at school, like Little Man has. At the moment all I get is ‘when is Alice back’! x

  3. Ahhh they are like the best team ever … lovely captures Donna. They look like twins here their height is hardly recognizable. The same is happening to my two slowly MM is catching up with her brother. I think they all do at this age. They are always so happy and full of adventure. Lovely captures this month. MM is still a little sad her brother is at school but soon she will join him come September next year. EEK I am not ready for an empty house. #siblingsproject
