I often wonder how their relationship will change as they get older, how Amy will fit into their little world as she becomes her own little person. Much as having three children under five has it’s challenges right now it feels like the perfect age gap and I hope that this closeness remains as the grow up.
How cute are these two! They just adore each other and I love to listen to them playing together. Of course they have their moments where they wind each other up – often at bedtime when Ben is trying to sleep and Chloe will climb up on his bed, or when she wants to play with something and he takes it off her – but mostly the play beautifully.
More and more I’m noticing them playing “with” each other rather than alongside each other – playing little imaginary games of Mums and Dads or dogs (yes I know – exciting right). Ben tends to take control of these games with the “Pretend that you’re the Mummy and I’m the big brother” but she will go along with it chatting away in role about going to the shops or feeding her baby.
