My Sisters In December.
It’s December. December. I can not quite believe that we are on the final month of the year, but the tree is up, the Christmas songs are on the radio non stop, and we are getting really excited about the big day. December has already proved to be really hectic and as we get towards the latter part of it, it only seems to be getting more so with the inevitable Christmas parties, festive play dates and getting organised for the holiday season.
My girls have been so full of character this month. With each passing day they become more interactive with each other, and it makes us laugh so much. They have a really unbreakable bond, they look out for each other and they love each other deeply. Mads will constantly ask LL if she wants to come for a ‘sleepover’ in her bed- they lie together under the covers and read books or play with the iPad. They also have a really caring side where they will get their special toy for the other one if they are crying or sad- both of them do it and it is so sweet to see. The other day at one of Mads friends birthday parties, they sat in a circle playing Pass the Parcel and I looked over at LL had her little teeny arm round Mads and was stroking her back. It made me get tears in my eyes, and one of the other Mum’s commented to me on how cute it was. Indeed whenever we are out, they often get little old ladies stop and smile at them as they run about together hand in hand.
But for all the sweet moments and sisterly love, they really do argue nowadays. LL can let out the most high pitched shriek when she doesn’t get her own way and Mads will try and wind her up and not let her have things. They are like a pair of old hens, they literally squawk and shout at each other, and LL very occasionally tries to push Mads which obviously doesn’t work as she is a lot bigger than her. At the moment these little outbursts don’t happen too frequently and so it makes us laugh as we get a glimpse into the future of what they will be like as they grow.
Our photos for this month were another last minute job. At the weekend Mr E was away and the girls and I went to a birthday party. We arrived home in the afternoon and they were clutching their little party bags so I ran inside and grabbed my camera and took these photos in front of my house. Not exactly the most glamorous or exciting location, but I really like them because it’s my favourite kind of light.
I take photos of my girls together most days, even if it is just with my iPhone. But as it is December and it’s been a whole twelve months of ‘Siblings’ here is a little recap of a year of photos of my two little ladies- just click on the month to see the whole post and the rest of the photos…
This month I am sending you on to have a look at lovely Jess and her even lovelier twosome, while you are there be sure to link up- my linky tools subscription still isn’t working properly!
