January brings with it not only the first Siblings post of the year, but the start of our fourth year of Siblings posts. We’ve missed the odd long along the way but for the most part I now have three years of monthly photos of my little team – and without this regular monthly prompt I can safely say there would be times where that didn’t happen! Particularly when I first started concentrating on trying to take my Siblings photos it was often quite difficult to get them all in the same photo and looking the same way, now they tend to just get on with it knowing that I’ll leave them alone if they do it quickly!
The Christmas holidays were survived and we’re now back into the swing of things at school. I must admit I’d expected a whole world of bickering over the festive period but it actually wasn’t bad. For the most part the three of them got on really well and played nicely together. That said, by the time we got to the last day of the holidays I think they were ready to go back.
Ben and Chloe seem to have settled into a much nicer relationship with each other again, they’ve been happier to play with each other and are often found snuggled up on the sofa together – though if you asked them Chloe would tell you that Ben hates her. Ben and Amy adore each other and when he’s in the mood he’s super caring and the best possible big brother; giving piggy backs, fastening her coat or holding her hand but then there are times where she drives him mad and he shouts at her – which usually ends up with him getting into trouble. I expect this will be a continuing theme over the coming months if I’m honest!
