Sisters {June 2018}

I’ve made more effort this month and actually planned a day to take some photos of the girls together. I love these photos of my girls as they show the real personalities of the two sisters, and how different they are. But they’re far from perfect as I just can’t get either of them to understand about looking at and/or smiling at the camera yet.

We’ve had a fairly quiet month here. I mentioned in another post that Lottie was shattered at the end of the half term. So we planned to have a chilled week. We’ve been enjoying the lovely weather and getting out in the park and the garden again. I think parenting is a whole different ball game in the summer. The girls run around and burn off so much energy. All that fresh air and exercise means they sleep brilliantly. Everyone’s happy.

Two photos at least looking in the right direction. Then Frankie gives into the urge to climb. And Lottie shows her disgust at being a blogger’s daughter.

And then they’re off to play together…

These two sisters seem to be spending more and more time together recently. They don’t necessarily play together yet, and they quite often fight like cat and dog over toys, books, etc. But they’re never far apart and I often find them sitting together, playing side by side. My heart literally swells every time I see them like this.

I picked Lottie up from preschool on her own earlier this week. And when she got in, she saw Frankie and ran to her to give her a cuddle. My heart nearly burst.

We’ve also had a few parties this month, and my two sisters will not leave each other’s side in this sort of situation. There’s definitely a strength and solace in siblings, and you always know your sister’s going to have your back, especially if you’re a bit unsure.

But it certainly isn’t always rosy. We could do with two of every toy we own. Of course, as soon as one starts playing with something, the other wants a go. At least they’re learning to share and take turns. Or hopefully they will soon.

    Beautiful photos! Your girls are so gorgeous, it must be so special seeing them spending more time together. Elijah is at the stage where he gets jealous when his cousins try to play with the same toys as him. He tells them “No no, don’t touch that!” haha. He has always been fairly good at sharing but I definitely think it takes a while for them to properly understand the concept! You are doing a wonderful job with your girlies xxx

      haha, bless him. It must be so hard for them to understand sharing at that age! Thank you so much lovely xxx

    That’s such a good idea to plan some sibling shootings. I bet you get a different quality of childhood capturing. I’ve only just started with the Siblings project but I’ll have to nick your idea as at the moment I sort of pull it together retrospectively from whatever photos I’ve taken!

      This is the first time I’ve actually planned photos, rather than just pulling out snaps and I am pleased with them. Not easy with toddlers though! 😉 xx

    I usually plan the siblings photos too or know at least what we are doing to take them but this month I didn’t and I was grateful I pick my camera up often! These are so lovely and I actually like the fact they are not looking always, shows alot of personality like you say, and it doesn’t really get easier either!!
