Siblings {January}


I’ve decided instead of doing the 365 project on my blog this year (I am doing it over on Instagram though so follow me there)  I will be taking part in the new Siblings project. I love capturing my kids together so each month on the tenth I will be sharing photos which I have snapped of them together. They are usually just phone photos because I’m too lazy to get the big camera out when I’m at home! I keep promising myself to get better at this and I will I will!!

From L to R – Bugs, Lero & Boo

Those of you that know me will know that I have three siblings but my oldest lives with his Dad so he isn’t around too much to join in with this new project, although when he is he will be featured in it 😉 The photo above was taken on Christmas Eve so please forgive me for cheating a little, but I haven’t seen Lero yet in 2014 and I didn’t want to exclude him! Lero is a wonderful boy who makes me so proud. He is currently doing his a levels and wants to go on to do Criminal Psychology. You can read the post linked above to find out all about why he doesn’t live with us anymore… turns out he didn’t actually need to move away at all but that’s life! I miss him terribly; so do Boo and Bugs. Bugs can often be heard saying “I’ve lost Lero” when Lero has gone back home and this breaks my heart.

Anyway *wipes away tears* Here are a few snaps of the ‘babies’ that I have taken this month…

The above photo was taken at bedtime on the 4th January and they were having a little ‘bonkers’ time before bed… I have no idea what got into them that night but WOW! lol

Sharing a bath on the 8th of Jan; They don’t have a bath together that often any more because I find it easier to do it separately but when they do they love it; that is when they are not arguing about who sits where, who has more bubbles, who gets to play with this toy or that toy (you see why I do it separately?)

This one was taken last night on the way home from school, it took me about 30 attempts to get this because they didn’t want to be photographed together… please don’t be fooled by their angelic exterior 😉

dear beautiful

    Sounds like your little ones really miss their big brother. The photo of all three is definitely one to treasure. And the shot in the bath is just the cutest.

    You’ve made me realise that my two ‘siblings’ will one day be bigger, and we will be taking photos on the way home from school too!!

    Lovely photos – it must be so hard when your eldest has to go home but I bet it makes it even more special when he does come to stay.

  • Reply Claire January 10, 2014 at 11:26 pm

    Such lovely pics! Everyday moments are the special ones. You’d never know you had to fight them for that last photo either!

    I love seeing all your photos, including your 365 ones. The last one of the both is so adorable, as of course is the one of all of your babies together. X
