Siblings January

Siblings January

Another month has passed and time for my siblings post with Dear Beautiful.

It’s hard to believe we were on the countdown to Christmas with the girls, this time last month and now it is all done and dusted.

The gremlin has been a big sister for almost 4 months now and she really has settled into her role. Her love for her baby sister is really obvious and she greets her most days like you would a long lost relative. I find her quite useful; she tells me when her sister is awake or asleep in the back of the car. She keeps her occupied when I need her little Piglet loves to watch her and she passes me wipes and towels when her little sister barfs all over my kitchen floor (she has just got over bronchiolitis).

The gremlin is almost as affectionate as last month but this has slightly waned I have to say (big fat phew!) She has started to enjoy drowning holding her sister in the bath and Piglet tends to let her older sister squeeze her and cuddle her, whilst I have a heart attack!

There has been some moments on jealousy. I dared to pick up little Piglet for a dance during a wet afternoon’s dancing session. The gremlin’s meltdown lasted about 10 minutes! We also have the immediate love for any of Piglet’s little toys; including her teething toy and little Taggy toy. Obviously ridiculous but the gremlin can’t seem to see why she can’t have it and why we get narked when she takes them off Piglet.

I tried to get a few photos of them together on my phone earlier on. Not the best I know. Need to use hubster’s camera but they are quite funny!

Short and sweet and see you the day after Valentine’s!

    Ah gorgeous girls 🙂 lovely to see their relationship growing. Bless Gremlin for the jealousy, can be hard for them to understand but on the whole it sounds like she has adapted amazingly well so far xxx

    Oh what gorgeous fun snaps of your girls. It’s a lovely project to look back on too when they are grown up and relive them growing together and that bond of siblings forming. I look forward to the year of #siblingsproject ahead.

    Adorable photos! I do remember my girl being helpful with her brother for things like telling me what he was up to all the time – so handy when they start to move, too! x

    Awww Gremlin looks so cute in that last one where she’s looking at the camera.
    It gets easier by the way, she won’t always be as jealous xx

    Aw little Piglet is growing up so quickly! The sharing thing is still an issue in our house and our youngest is nearly 2 1/2! It’s fun! Gorgeous pics xx
