Siblings – September 2015

After a summer of living in each other’s pockets and loving almost every second of it, September has brought with it big changes.

I noticed over the course of the summer that Chloe and Amy’s relationship in particular had really changed.  They had become so much closer and were often choosing to play together.  As Amy is becoming more able to express herself and to understand what Chloe wants of her, she’s becoming a more entertaining play mate.  Whilst Ben preferred to spend time upstairs with his LEGO, the girls were often playing (somewhat stereotypically) with dolls, prams and our play kitchen – Chloe leading the game with instructions of “pretend this” or “You be the Mummy and I’ll be so and so”. 

I knew that the start of the new term would be a shock to them, to Amy in particular.  On the first day of term I purposely planned a day out, nothing exciting, just a trip to the shops to get us out of the house and keep us both busy so she barely noticed that the other two weren’t there.  On the second day I was back to work too, Amy was to spend her first day at the childminder on her own.  She was so sad when Chloe got out of the car without her, she cried and cried.  I breathed a huge sigh of relief when we arrived at the childminders, all tears were forgotten as she shouted “Anges”.  Over the last week or so she has made it clear that she is missing them both, Chloe in particular and can’t wait to go and pick them up from school in an afternoon.  

Our new routines are definitely taking some getting used to and I know they’re appreciating each other all the more on a weekend. 

Rather than taking a specific shot for my siblings post this month I’m sharing a selection of photos of my babies together over the last few weeks:

      I feel like both girls have really grown up recently – they just change so quickly don't they!

    They are adorable together and looks like a lovely summer of outdoor fun in your house too.

    Really nice photo's and we forget that they will miss their siblings as much as their parents. I see you have a smart trike, we bought one for our grandson Bear. He loves it (we do too!)

    Aww bless your little girl, it seems to be mass change up and down in all families with the start of school. I hope it does get easier for her really quickly. So sweet she loves her childminder 🙂

    Aww, so many lovely siblings moments for your little trio in September. I think it's a been a big month of change for so many children after a summer together, I'm glad your three are dealing with all the changes well. x
