The Siblings Project // June 2016

Well here we are…it’s the fifteenth of the month again and that means it’s time for our monthly Siblings Project. I feel like i say this all of the time but i really can’t believe how quickly this year is going, we’re half way through 2016 already which seems crazy to me. This is one of my favourite projects though and this month i’m sharing some photos from our day out at The Dinosaur Park in Tenby.

Spot the kids!

Harry has always been the “boss” of their relationship and Riley has always been happy to take a backseat, but he seems to have had a growth spurt, both physically and mentally and he’s suddenly quite the little “grown up”.  I’m noticing more and more that the roles have reversed and he is taking the lead in most situations with Harry now looking to him for guidance and reassurance. Which is how it should be…a little brother looking up to his big brother and i can’t begin to tell you how happy that makes me.

It’s so strange because in many ways they are so so similar, but when it comes to their personalities…they are polar opposites. Riley is very laidback and chilled with the kindest heart and sweetest temperament. Harry on the other hand is determined and feisty with a stubborn (and at times a divalicious) temperament. Inevitably they clash on occasion (what siblings don’t?), but for the most part they are very loving towards one another.

Harry’s had a language explosion and i think it’s made way for a closer relationship between them because he can communicate with Riley so much better now. They have the cutest conversations with one another and i adore hearing them playing and imagining themselves in different scenarios. Trust me when i say that they go on the coolest adventures – walking with dinosaurs, treasure hunting with pirates, climbing mountains, flying in a rocket to outer space, trekking through the jungle. There’s something quite captivating about children at this stage – Everything is so magical and wonderful to them. Their minds are so pure and untainted. Their imaginations run wild and free.

I’m a little envious. They have no idea about the hurt going on in the world right now and i wish i could keep that from them forever.

I can’t wait to see how their relationship grows and changes over the next month!

    Can I just say how awesome this park looks! My little girl is dinosaur obsessed!!
    We had that with my eldest and the twins that the relationship was cemented when they started talking more and could play games together. It’s a lovely time when they can isn’t it? xx

    It’s lovely to hear how their relationship is developing and growing as they grow. And yes it’s been an awful week in the news hasn’t it, thank goodness for our children! x

    Aaah bless them!!! I LOVE being a mum of boys — yours sound just the same as my two! Like little polar opposites of each other — but the best of friends nevertheless 🙂 x

    Hope you had a fab time in West Wales. One of my favourite parts of the world.
    I love seeing the sibling bond develop between my three, my youngest is two and a quarter and starting to play more with the older two (4 and 6). Like you say though, it’s amazing how different siblings can be, even though you bring them up the same. Mine fight like cat and dog but are also the best of friends. x
