Siblings in April









These two sisters have had two whole weeks together. It has been 90% lovely and 10% bickering and arguing. Last week, i took Elle to London for the day and Mia stayed at her Nana's house for a sleepover for the first time on her own. When we took Mia up to the house for her sleepover, Elle cried because she didn't want to leave her sister. She cried in the car all the way home and spent the whole next day asking for her. As soon as we returned from London, there was a running hug movie kind of scene! Elle picked her up and spun her around whilst Mia gave her one of her squeezy cuddles. They hate being apart from each other. It really makes me emotional to see them together. They call each other best friends. 

The time has come where, after bedtime, they go into each others rooms not knowing that i can hear them running around or giggling together. It actually reminds me of being little. Me, my sister and brother would go in each others rooms and we would hear a "get to bed" from downstairs and we were always amazed at how mum knew we were out of bed! I find myself doing the same. Standing at the bottom of the stairs and saying "bed" in a firm voice and i see one of them whizzing across the landing to run back into their room for it to happen again only 5 minutes later. We have thought about letting them share a room because Elle is always asking but Mia isn't a great sleeper. We are hoping that when she starts school in September, that she will start to sleep through the night and then we might consider allowing them to share together. Both girls are so excited for Mia to start school. They will share a playground and Elle is always talking about being excited to play with her at lunchtimes and playtimes and seeing her in assembly. I know that Elle will look out for her sister and they will continue to be the best of friends even at school.

"Siblings" is a monthly link up where myself and 6 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 Katie at Mummy Daddy Me. Her blog is filled with beautiful and enchanting photographs of her two little ladies, LL and Mads. It is definitely one of my favourite blogs!

  12. Oh I love that they scamper at night! My girls do the same but between beds as they're in the same room and they're always amazed that I knew they were up and about! Usually with us it's a foot at the bottom of our creaky stairs and you can hear them running back! I love these photos too - they look like tree sprites that might disappear at a moment's notice!

  32. Beautiful photos Kerri! My girls call each other best friends too, lovely to hear even if they do have moments of bickering like old ladies over a cone of chips! They are so close and love to know where each other are, they are also so fond of their friday mornings at preschool together too. Lovely post, I love how we have bouts of nostalgia through watching our own children xxx
