For these photographs, we went to both of the girls favourite places. Mia is a water baby. If you put her near water, she will find a stick and she will get her fishing on! She has the sweetest imagination and pretends she is catching baby fairy fish. It is like she belongs there, at the ponds. Elle loves it too, of course, but Mia just goes into her own world and wants to get in the water so much. I will be glad when the weather is warm enough for me to be able to say yes to her and she is so desperate to paddle in the water with her fishing sticks.
Elle is a flower girl. She calls herself that and she will pick, collect and arrange beautiful bouquets out of any flower she can find. Her new favourite is cow parsley. The woods is full of it on the way home from school and she collects a huge bunch everyday after school. I have started to put them in jars on the table as they look so pretty and then i can refill them with the new bunch she picks the day after.
Together, these little girls are such free spirits. They are the best of friends and when they play together, their worlds are full of fairies and mermaids and that is what they are. Elle is the flower fairy and Mia is the water mermaid. And i am just so proud to be able to call myself their mama!
"Siblings" is a monthly link up where myself and 9 other bloggers all share a photo of their children and then we each send you off to look at another blog. You can then go around in a circle, viewing all of the wonderful photographs and then why not link up yourself if you have two children or more! This month, i am sending you over to Jess's blog "Along came Cherry". Her blog is full of beautiful crafts, beautiful photography and two beautiful children!! If you haven't read Jess's blog before then you are in for such a treat :)
