My Sisters In October.
Yet another month has gone past, I feel like I could have blinked and missed September. We have been so busy, life has been so hectic, and my little ladies have had lots of adventures, fun times and changes in routine. I thought it would calm down a little now October has arrived, but our diary is already filling up with different things, so we really are relishing the quiet moments as much as the days out, visits to family and little trips.
As another month in 2014 passes us by, Mads and LL’s relationship has changed and grown even more. As LL becomes more interactive and as her little personality develops, you see their bond developing even more. LL follows her big sister around like a little dog, whereever Mads goes you won’t find her far behind. They are so affectionate with one another, cuddling, kissing and holding hands a lot. Now LL is fully walking and running, they cause no end of mischief, causing havoc if they are ever not in the buggy when we are out and about.
Mads still continues to be the best big sister as she has been from day one, looking after and caring for LL, sharing her treats or toys with her, or just generally looking out for her. I often listen to Mads talking to her, telling her about different things or soothing her if she is grumpy or sad. Likewise I see LL looking at Mads with pure love in her eyes, she is so in awe of her big sister.
But for all the love and affection, a definite sibling rivalry is developing between them both, as well as moments of bickering. LL is at an age where she doesn’t understand that things aren’t ‘hers’ so she will often come up and try and grab things off Mads, which obviously doesn’t go down too well. When this happens and she doesn’t get her own way, she will let out a high pierced wail, causing Mads to get cross and tell her off. Likewise Mads will say things like ‘I have the best clothes on’ or ‘LL isn’t allowed this cause she is a baby and I am a big girl.’ It makes me laugh to hear them bickering as I get flashes of what their teenage years will be like.
My photos were this month were taken during our little trip to Brighton with my own sister, where the girls ran around, held hands and giggled the whole time. They loved the pebble beach, for some reason both my children have a bizarre obsession with playing with stones and rocks! I really am so proud of their relationship and the way they are with one another and these photos make me smile.
This month I am sending you over to have a look at Lucy’s beautiful boy and beautiful girl and see what they have been getting up to!
