Parker celebrated his first birthday on the 4th, meaning Jack and I have been parents of two for a whole year. And what an amazing year it's been! The bond between these two has grown and changed so much over the year. We were so lucky and happy to never experience any jealously from Indiana when her brother was born. Of course we do have bad days - especially now Parker is so mobile - but most of the time these two absolutely adore each other.
I took these photos on a little afternoon trip to the park. Having two different sexes means I can't do matching outfits, but love that they're co-ordinating in these. They were running around chasing each other the whole time we were out. Parker following Indie wherever she went. Indie leading the way, holding Parker's hand to guide him on their adventure.
This little trip was our first without a pushchair. Both took their bikes, but the second we arrived they just wanted to run. I cannot wait to enjoy more of these types of adventures now Parker is getting older. I absolutely love watching my two babies walking along hand in hand.
Having a 20 month age gap was tough at times. But watching these two now I couldn't imagine life any other way, and wouldn't change a thing. They're going to be the best of friends (we hope haha), and I'm so glad they have each other.
I didn't take these pictures specifically for this post, but I couldn't not include them. This was actually the first time Parker snuggled up to Indiana, and they both seemed happy about it! They sat for ages snuggled up watching Frozen. Both content with each others company, and even holding hands. It's moments like these are so extra special, and make me so happy that they have each other.
