siblings {january}


These two simply adored all the time they got to play together over Christmas. Preschool has been good for us as a family, giving the beautiful boy some independence, giving the beautiful girl some more mummy time; and while my worries about it ruining their close friendship proved to be unfounded, it sure is nice to get a break from the routine and go back to them enjoying all their time together again.



And as we get back into the January grind of life, they continue to want to do everything together and it just warms my heart. He will wait to play with specific toys when she wakes up from her nap so they can play together. She wants him to have everything that she has, so always makes a point of asking for two biscuits and two lunches to make sure he has one too.


Their age gap seems to get smaller by the day, with her exploding language and understanding and they really do play as equals now. I expected to feel a little left out as they began to play more independently of me, but I love it. They really do have something which despite my giving it to them, is theirs and theirs alone. Giving my kids a sibling was the most amazing gift, and I am so proud that they treasure it so much. 



So here we are, Siblings is back for another year. And I'm already so excited to add more sibling moments to my photo collection. Looking back on this time last year, it already seems like a lifetime ago... and it just makes me even more determined to keep photographing these two, so that they can see the time line of their relationship.

Of course, I'd love to see you linking up your sibling photos too. It's such a feel-good thing looking through all the photos each month. And the Siblings format remains the same, link up with me, or one of my lovely cohosts; and each of us will send you to visit another cohost so that you can travel around in a little circle and see them all. 

This month I'll be sending you to visit a new cohost for this year, Amber at Goblin Child. I feel like maybe my suggestion should come with a warning to anyone who may be broody though... she will be sharing her beautiful baby twins with us. Don't say I didn't warn you!

Now link up your photos below, and come and join the Siblings community we are building on Facebook too. Share your favourite photo from this month to our wall and we'll share some of our favourites. We're hoping it can be a place where we can inspire one another, ask questions, share beautiful photos and also prompt you to take your snaps each month so that you don't miss a month. 

dear beautiful

  17. Beautiful photos, with the light streaming down. I worried about my pair's relationship when Boo started school in September, but they are fine. As you say, it is nice to get a break and give them more time together, though x

  19. Oh I am glad to see that preschool hasn't had any affect on their amazing bond as siblings and best friends. Lovely winter beach photos. I am dying to get us and my camera outside again. The wind up north has been absolutely horrendous. These are such sweet captures. They really do look like little twinsies. I love it. They are growing up so beautifully together. Sibling bonds are amazing I am so grateful I have my own siblings so I know how special they are to have and grow up with. Thanks for hosting. Look forward to a whole year of sibling captures from everyone!!! #siblings

  32. This is such a beautiful Linky and one that captures the emotions of being a mummy so beautifully in pictures. They say pictures paints a 1000 words & its so true here. Beautiful photos of two very happy siblings, and the backdrop is stunning against a weakened January sky.
