The Siblings Project | June 2017

Thursday, 15 June 2017


I love writing about my little pair each month, and it's honestly crazy to think I've been a mummy to two for almost two years now. And I know I said the same thing last month, but just look how big they are.. definitely not babies anymore! These photos were taken at the weekend at Chartwell, we took our siblings photos here last May, so it's amazing to see the difference.

We've had such a lovely few weeks since my last Sibling's Project post. When it went live we were actually on holiday, enjoying some quality family time. It was so lovely to watch the two of them play and explore together. Indie loved teaching Parker how to use the water squirters, and they would dance together late into the night most evenings.

When it came to bedtime on holiday, there was absolutely no keeping them apart. They slept side by side, snuggled up together every night - and they slept the best they have in ages. Since being home they've requested sleepovers so often, so they clearly miss each other (despite their beds being right next to each other anyway).



Half term was also a lovely little break, where the two of them got to spend even more quality time together. Usually by the end of the week I'm stressed to the max, and cannot wait to get back to our routine. But this one was definitely different!

They played so well together, and the sun meant we got out and about as much as possible. Parker really is Indie's little shadow, and it was so lovely to watch him follow her around playing. The only downside is that P is still a little bit too little to do some of the things she does (these swings terrified me!).

Although saying that, I think he does sometimes give her the confidence boost she needs - he's got no fear, so I think she feels she has to keep up!




This sunny weather has really made me excited for summer adventures with these two. I know I'll definitely be done after a few weeks (I'm sure many mamas will relate!), but I just love having both of them around. Especially as it means they can entertain each other, so I can get 5 minutes peace every so often!

  11. They are so cute together! I know I say it all the time but I can't believe Parker and Gabe are almost exactly the same age - he always looks so much older than Gabe does. Maybe it's because Toby is so big and it makes Gabe look really little still, whereas Parker and Indie are much more similar (and closer in age too). Anyway, they look like they were having the best time playing together - long may it continue! #SiblingsProject

  15. It's funny we have a similar thing going on. My daughter was cautious but her little brother is definitely making her more adventurous. It is lovely to see.
    I love the photos under the big tree
