The Siblings Project // November 2016

Once again I am late with my “Siblings Project” post, but November has been crazy busy and between Riley’s birthday/party prep, Christmas planning and freelance work I’ve had little time for anything else this month. Nevertheless, amidst the chaos, the relationship between Riley and Harry has continued to blossom.

These photos were taken casually and candidly on my phone one evening during bathtime, purely for my own benefit because i wanted to document the moment. I had absolutely no intention of using them for anything, but then I looked through them and realised that actually, they captured the essence of “siblings” brilliantly so would be perfect for this month’s post.

These were the kinds of “magic moments” between Riley and a younger sibling, that I had pictured when I was pregnant the second time around. I knew from very early on that Harry was a boy and I hoped that as “brothers” they would have the same close bond that I did – and still do – with my sister. siblings projectsiblings project

I think as a parent, the only thing you want for your children is for them to be happy in life and feel loved. Judging by the faces on these two, I’d like to think that I’m doing a pretty good job of that so far.

      We had Riley’s last weekend….i’d forgotten just how stressful they can be to organise but he had a fantastic day and that’s all that matters really! He doesn’t need to know about the sleepless nights and hair pulling before hand lol! Hope Max enjoys his party 😉 xx

    We have a tiny bathroom and don’t have a bath, so when my twins go to someone elses house, or on holiday they get so excited that they can have a bath!! For this very reason

      Gosh….how do you manage without one? We tried the boys in the shower once and it was a complete disaster so they’ve not been back in there since lol xx

      It’s ridiculous really how much a birthday can throw a spanner into the works of normal routine! I’ll be glad when the chaos of Christmas is over and calm can be restored! xx

    It’s so nice that they have such a lovely sibling bond. They look like they’re having so much fun! I have so many bath pictures of my sister and I! It’s so lovely for the memory book. x
