Siblings – June 2016

Through a combination of sunshine and lots of family adventures, I have loads of siblings photos to share this month!

From trips to our local park, lying on the living room floor together or big adventures like Geronimo Festival or Alton Towers – we’ve spent lots of time in each other’s company over the last month.

The girls in particular seem to be getting increasingly close, they love nothing more than to be wearing matching dresses!

Half term saw the usual ramp up on the bickering scale, they do get fed up with each other – Amy will spoil Ben’s LEGO or not follow the “rules” of Chloe’s game, however they tend to be reasonably tolerant of her and it’s more likely to be Ben and Chloe that are most likely to press each other’s buttons – they’ll argue about what film to watch, about what role they want to play in their imaginary game or what direction the story will take.  It makes me laugh listening to them, “Pretend that I’m the Dad and you’re the Mum”, “Pretend that I died and then you got taken by a witch” – they spend more time arguing about discussing what they’re going to pretend than actually doing it and I remember doing exactly the same with my sister as a kid!

Ben and Chloe have been getting into trouble of an evening – messing about after we’ve put them to bed.  We can hear them banging about and giggling when they’re supposed to be going to sleep – they’re thick as thieves.  We’ve decided that perhaps it’s time to move bedtime on a little bit, that they’re not quite tired enough when we’re taking them upstairs.  A while back we staggered their bedtimes to try to alleviate the situation but then Ben took on some extra commitments of an evening that meant he was getting really tired and needed to be going to bed earlier again.  It’s all trial and error I guess.

Although it’s still just over a month away I’m already starting to make plans for the Summer holidays to keep them all busy!  Fingers crossed we get lots of sunny days so we can get out and about in the fresh air!

      They've come out of nowhere! Literally just this last couple of weeks she has discovered that she can rock a pose – it's hilarious. What's even better is watching Amy trying to copy her <3

      That's my favourite photo too! She's suddenly learned to pose put of nowhere ?

    So many fab photos this month! Amy is looking so like Chloe now – especially when she's copying her poses in photos. I'm actually looking forward to Gabe getting a bit bigger so he can stand up for himself in the sibling bickering – for now it's mostly just Toby taking whatever he wants, even if Gabe is already playing with it!

    Oh what a wonderful month you've had – I love the matching outfits, it's so much fun while they're still little enough to think it the best thing in the world!

    These are such a gorgeous set of photos – adore all the posing. Think the black and white ones pulling faces on the floor are my fave! #TheSiblingsProject x
