Family & Days Out

Siblings January 2015

I joined in with the Siblings project throughout 2014, and I really love being able to look back and see their cheeky faces and read about how Little Man and Boo’s relationship has grown and developed, so I’ll be doing the same each month again this year.

These are two of my favourite shots of them together over the last couple of weeks…

Not the best of photos, you can’t see their faces, and the first is blurry. I know, but I’ve chosen them because of what they say about my children this month.

The first makes me laugh when I look at it. They love it when I get a roll of lining paper out for them to scrawl all over, and it’s sweet to see them contentedly sitting side by side and quietly working. It’s one of the rare activities that will keep both of their attention for quite some time. Though Boo’s skills are clearly stronger, they’re on an equal footing here, as they can both do what they like. In this shot, I’d just laid out a fresh piece, and told them that they each had the half they were sitting in front of. Boo set to work practising letters, in that small little space there, whereas Little Man immediately wanted to claim his entire workspace by drawing huge circles and long lines all over it! Made me smile to see how differently they operate.

In theΒ second, they’re peering out of our bedroom window, as they often do when they’re up together in the morning. I find it cute to look at, but it also puts me in mind of their morning play sessions, full of imagination, make believe and chatter. It’s lovely to listen to, even when I don’t want to be awake!

And here they are, at least one moment where I have them looking at the camera! I love that they’re holding hands, too.

The last few weeks have of course included the Christmas break, which has meant two weeks of these two playing with each other all day every day and they have absolutely loved it. Back to normality now, and Boo’s been happy to go back to school and Little Man’s been content having Mummy back to himself again. They create their havoc from 3.30, so they still have that!
