It’s the fifteenth of the month again and that means it’s time for our monthly Siblings Project update. This is one of my favourite monthly commitments (despite the fact i’m almost always late in posting) as it serves as a reminder to myself to catch a few portraits of the boys together and to document how much their relationship is growing and changing.
These shots were taken during a fun, if a little cold and damp, afternoon in the garden. They’re definitely not the best photos i’ve ever taken of the boys but it’s becoming quite a task to capture these two together and both looking at the same time.
Harry has really grown up over the last month and because of this, the pair seem to have a real respect for each other these days. Thankfully this means we’re having less arguments or tantrums and if there is any fall out, it’s usually because one doesn’t want to play the same game as the other (although they do still want to play together). They have a bit of an issue still when it comes to sharing although generally they tend to reach some sort of compromise and are never intentionally mean to each other. Yes, Harry has a more demanding and stubborn streak, but he loves his big brother and really looks up to him.
I’ve also recently noticed that their sense of humour is becoming very similar. They find the same things funny and are laughing so much more together. If one is laughing at something, the other isn’t usually too far behind. Granted it’s always very childish toilet humour but I still love listening and watching them having so much fun together.
There was a reason i knew i always wanted two children close in age.
They forever have a friend in one another.
