And so begins another year. This time last year our Sibling relationships were very different, Amy was just taking her first steps, and it was hard to get all three of them in the same place never mind looking at the camera. I wondered at the time if I would manage to keep up with the monthly Sibling photos, if indeed it would ever be easy to photograph them all together! A year later and it’s still not exactly “easy” to photograph them – but they will at least all stand / sit together and look vaguely in the direction of the camera (though perhaps not at the same time!).
This month’s photos are (quite clearly) from Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve – what better time to get snaps of all three of them together? The three of them loved the Christmas holidays, revelled in each other’s company and kept each other fully entertained. Their relationships blossomed as they played imaginatively – acting out their own versions of the Nativity (this was a particularly random one) or being kings, queens, mums, dads and anything else you can possibly think of.
I love being able to listen to them playing together, they don’t need our help or interference (except for perhaps sorting out the odd disagreement), they are a team and the love each other dearly.
(You may notice a “thumbs up” theme running through these pictures – this was instigated by Ben tough I hadn’t realised how often they were doing it till I put this set of photos together. I particularly love Amy’s attempts each time!)
