Something has really changed between these two over the last month or so;
they have become a real team, a little unit of their own.
I think its because as they get older, their age gap seems to get smaller,
as they become more equal and enjoy things together more.
And it's just the most amazing thing to watch
as they have these beautiful and spontaneous moments all their own.
In fact we don't even always get to witness these moments,
as the two of them choose to go off and play together away from us.
They love playing in their bedroom together,
and listening to them giggle and play makes me realise
just how separate their friendship is from me.
We may have given them each other,
but what they have isn't something that their daddy and mummy get to be part of.
This month brings a strange kind of change to their relationship in another way too,
while they seem to be closer than ever lately,
looming on the horizon is a big change.
Our beautiful boy will start preschool soon,
and it will leave his little sister at home without him.
Time will tell, but I think our beautiful girl is going to be a bit lost without him,
without her little playmate, partner-in-crime, and permanent entertainer.
I think they are going to miss each other terribly,
especially her, who will be stuck at home with Mummy,
while her big bro goes off to have fun with new friends.
I just really hope that absence makes the heart grow fonder,
and that preschool doesn't get in the way of their beautiful friendship.
she also has a big boy and a little girl (who are a little older than mine)
and I always feel like I'm looking into my future when I see her posts.
She takes such gorgeous photos of her gorgeous pair, you won't be disappointed.
