We are going through a phase where getting photos of these two girls together is hard work. Firstly they constantly seem to be on a quest for mischief, and generally not at the same time or place. The days of sitting quietly, with Mads holding LL delicately are most certainly are a thing of the past. Mads tolerates the camera in small doses, but if you ask her to look at it she pulls an inane cheshire cat sort of grin. Posed but natural is definitely not her forte!
LL on the other hand needs to be contained in something in order to take a photo of her, otherwise she escapes before you can press the shutter. Whereas before she would sit and stare at the camera perfectly with her big beautiful blue eyes, now her mission seems to be to look everywhere other than at me and the big device in my hand.
As LL isn’t walking, I am struggling to know what how to get photos of them together, as they are just so busy doing their own thing. They love to play together but usually it is has a limited life span before LL is off trying to do something else she shouldn’t be. She is well in the throws of that exhuastingly lovely age where it’s fun to be anywhere she shouldn’t be. If you ask Mads to hold LL still you usually get results like this…
We experienced the first mild day this year on Saturday, so we thought that it would be perfect to get out and get to the park. Obviously all children enjoy a chance to let off steam and play, and Mads and LL are no exception. I still experience the biggest joy when they play on the swings together, they giggle in delight and set each other off giggling even more.
I love this photo where they are playing on the seesaw together, they look so happy and full of love and innocence.
They get on so well like they always have done, but funnily enough I love watching them beginning to squabble the most. It’s so amusing to watch Mads get stroppy with LL for something, as at the moment it looks like LL is going to be the one who holds her own, she lets out a loud shriek if Mads ever tries to take anything off her.
They are growing up so quick these sisters of mine and I am relishing every minute of watching them grow and interact together. I’ve said it a million times before but the best thing about being a Mum to two children is watching their relationship change, grow and develop month by month. I feel very honoured to be able to watch them become best friends.
