Siblings December

I’m actually a little early for my siblings post this month! It’s due on the 15th but I decided I would get organised. It’s hard to believe the gremlin has been a big sister for 3 months almost and my little Piglet will be moving out of the newborn phase. Scary but exciting as she is coming along so well.

So another month has passed? Is the gremlin any less all over her sister. No. Absolutely not. She is STILL smothering her sister with love and kisses at every opportunity. We know this is mainly genuine as Piglet can be sat alone minding her own business and she is pounced on. At other times, me or hubby or my Mum can have Piglet and the gremlin has to intervene too. We think this is more of a jealousy thing as the attention is not on her. I’m getting used to it now and so is Piglet but for anyone not around much, I hear audible gasps and the gremlin “loves” her sister. I think poor Piglet just looks squashed. Piglet does get pretty fed up sometimes and yells at the gremlin and this still helps us removing Piglet from the clutches of her big sister.

Regardless of this, Piglet obviously loves her sister as her eyes are always on the gremlin when she is around. She is responding much more with smiles and coos to the gremlin and this really has helped with bonding and love. There has been no obvious aggression and meanness from the gremlin to Piglet and this is the most important thing in my eyes.

The gremlin is definitely just herself now. Any playing up and giddiness is just her being a 3 year old and is manageable. I’ve had a couple of occasions when both are crying; Piglet was tired and the gremlin hurt herself. I had to tag team between the two and this is fun when you are trying to get out of the house!

Overall my girls are definitely bonding and I’m hoping their relationship really continues to grow.

See you in January!

    Such beautiful pictures! I imagine that like my boys they will be both good friends and sworn enemies several times a day!

    So many lovely photos of them together for you to look back on! I think there’s always going to be a bit of jealousy when a new sibling comes along but its lovely to see they clearly love each other! #Bestandworst

    Ah she looks like she loves her little sister and that’s definitely better than being jealous. Be glad she’s small enough not to lug her aboit everywhere like we have in our house. “Put your sister down!!”. Thanks for hosting as ever #bestandworst

    Your girls look adorable! The bond is there, it will always be there and it will only go stronger.Still, some rivals and jelousy are the feelings that come along with siblings. And that’s normal and how it should be, but they will always stand up for one another and just wait till they plot together against you!¨;) That is so adorable, thinking they can win;))))

    Ah this takes me back to the early days of life with two girls. As I look at them in front of me snuggled up in Elsa dresses I’m realising how fast it’s gone. Enjoy xx

    I can’t believe no one has mentioned Piglet giving poor little Gremlin the finger, haha. I’m sure its in a… “why are you so happy when I don’t know why I’m crying for our picture” kind of finger. Haha. Gorgeous pictures of the girls x

    Hi Sarah

    Lovely pictures, perfect for using to embarrass them later on in life if they ever have an argument and need reminding that they used to play nicely together.

    Such gorgeous photos and it’s plain to see how they have bonded. I love their little Christmas outfits! Still can’t believe that Piglet is three months old!! HOW??? #bestandworst

    My word, so you have had the little one! This is shocking, shows how long I’ve been away from your blog for which I do apologise, just been manic (though not as manic as you!!). Very interesting reading your post. Reminds me of when our youngest came along. Helen adjusted to it well but for the next year I was constantly badgered to spend time with her. Think she was worried she wouldn’t be the centre of attention any longer. Great pics by the way, that is one impressive baby gro!

    Gorgeous pictures. My youngest is 2 now and her big brother is still hugging her all the time. They have such a great bond and she’s a feisty little thing and quick to give him a shove if he’s getting in her face too much!

    A wonderful thing! Your girls are just too cute! Girls as young as your little gremlin cannot fake emotion. Just not possible! (Unless it’s faking being pissed off, which comes easily for humans of any age.)

    My big sister was 3 years older than me. It was and still is a heavenly relationship! My sister taught me to read, hula-hoop, ride a bike…nearly everything! She loved being given jobs by my mom and dad and reveled in that for many years.

    You are a very lucky woman! #bestandworst
