Siblings – January 2017

And so begins our third year of Siblings posts.  I love the way this project encourages (or even forces me) to take regular photos of my children together.  As time goes by it does get easier to get them all in the same place at the same time to take a photo.  They’ve learned to just let me get the photos I want quite quickly so they can disappear off and do their own thing again.  We tend to take it in turns to do nice photos and silly photos – and often the silly photos turn out to be my favourites!  The challenge remains, of course, to get them all looking at the camera the same time . . .

This month’s photos were taken at the very end of December on a walk up in Heaton Park, easily one of our favourite places for a good dose of fresh air in our lungs!  Father Christmas brought them matching #SquadGoals tops after being inspired by a Mummy Daddy Me video and I couldn’t resist taking some “team” photographs for this months’ Siblings post.

    I love the #squadgoal tops they are so cool! I’m the same I love that this project makes me get photos of my girls, ones that without it I wouldn’t have. Your children always look like they have so much fun with them each month. x

    I loved your #squadgoals photos when I first saw them on Instagram, they certainly look like a cool little squad in these photos. And I love what you said about how they just know to let you get your photos, I think my big two have learnt that now, and it does make the whole thing easier. Thanks for linking up with us. x

    Love those matching tops – what a fabulous ‘squad’ and an exclusive one at that! Some great images (as always) of three very happy children x #SiblingsProject

    I think there’s definitely a point at which they realise that Mummy is going to be taking these photos and it’s more fun if we do what she asks! And I love the matching tops – they look like an awesome little squad and I strongly suspect one of their goals to be world domination!

    These are the best photographs, I love your kids, they’re so cool! I love little Amy’s face, she’s like ‘yeah, they’re my BIG brother and sister so there’, she’s in awe of them xx

      Ha of course they do, I just don’t tend to share those photos. Perhaps I should do a post of comedy photo outtakes ?

    Love the tops! They always look like they’re having such good fun together. Chloe and Amy look so alike in that last picture too 🙂
