I did think about cutting down the amount of photos for my sibling post this month, because I know there are a lot and I only normally tend to post three of four. But then I figured I wouldn't. Let's be honest, I have tons more than have made it as far as this post as it is, because my trio have been together more and there have been so many fun time to grab a photo of. And because this is a true picture of our August. There has been lots of glorious sibling time and lots of lovely memories to show for it. So you'll have to settle for my eight favourites, and know that it took quite a lot of work to cut it down to that many...!
I'll confess I was a little apprehensive about the summer holidays. I should point out that mostly I was super excited to have my little trio together all day every day for six weeks, but also... all day, every day, three little people who all know their own minds... it could just as easily be a recipe for disaster. But it hasn't been, at least not so far at the half way mark. So far the summer holidays have been amazing.
Dylan has loved having quieter more chilled out days and getting to spend more time with his sisters. He is such an amazing big brother and I know I say it all the time, but they are so lucky to have him, because he already looks out for them so much.
Everly has loved having her partner in crime at home day-in-day-out, and her and Dylan have rarely been apart. She's also completely blossomed into even more of a miniature mummy than she already was. I'm not sure if it's the age she's at at the moment, or the fact that Ashlyn is so much more interesting these days; but she's just so enchanted by her baby sister.
And Quinny is definitely loving having two entertainers around the whole time. She looks at both of them with such adoration. She'll follow them from room to room, feeding off their excitement at times or relaxing into some quiet play alongside them at other times.
There has quite simply been so much hysterical laughter from them all this past few weeks, which just melts me. Its just been full of those kinds of moments I always pictured... wanted... dreamed about. A house full of laughter and noise, and my children just loving life and loving each other. Yes there are times when the noise has threatened to send me over the edge, when the laughter has bubbled over into hysteria, and the mess of toys has made me want to weep; but this is what I always wanted, a big family of close children and it takes my breath away sometimes to see it happening before my eyes.
Do pop by my cohosts and see the sibling photos and moments that they are sharing this month too. Katie has some gorgeous photos of her threesome on their holidays to share, Carie is sharing photos from her European adventure, Keri-Anne has some dreamy captures to share, and Amber, well Amber just doubled her sibling line up from two to four with the addition of her baby girls, so she is bound to have something pretty special to share.
