I was lying in bed this morning casually flicking through twitter as the rest of my house were still asleep, (I seem to have an annoying habit of waking up ridiculously early at the moment) when I noticed a few people tweeting about their 'Siblings' posts for this month. I thought they may have just been super keen, until I realised that the post was meant to go up today.
Cue me panicking as I completely thought that it was tomorrow. I had no photos ready (I was going to attempt to take some today) and no post written. I jumped out of bed like a crazy lady and went downstairs and fired up the laptop. While it totally doesn't matter if I don't post this month, it's not like it's an official deadline or a matter of life or death, I didn't want to let the other ladies in our little group down so I have salvaged some blurry photos from my iPhone. Total blogger fail.
I took these photos of the girls yesterday before we went out for the morning with my Mum. They are both wearing their matching navy dresses which is actually totally OTT for a Monday morning trip to town and the garden centre, but I find I have so many gorgeous outfits for them both that don't get worn very often. And if one can't dress up a little to peruse the shrubs and eat a jacket potato in a cafe full of old age pensioners, when on earth can you?
These daughter's of mine have been so lovely this month. With LL so nearly walking Mads has been in her element helping her by holding her hand non stop. The look that my biggest girl gets on her face when her little sister walks to her is one that makes my heart swell a little bit- she has a look of complete pride written all over her delicate little features and she laughs and claps along with her.
Mads is definitely a 'little Mum' that's for sure. She is so kind and caring towards LL, always thinking of her. She makes sure she has toys to play with, will always share her food with her (even when she has cake which even I am not too keen on sharing) and constantly cuddles and kisses her. If she cries she goes to her instantly, and with each month that goes by we get to see them interact more- their relationship and bond is growing stronger by the day, with the odd bit of feistiness thrown in too.
So there we have it. My lovely sisters in June. A bit of a rush job in terms of the photos and this post but as always the sentiment is there, and it's a little snippet of our everyday life I don't want to forget. Now I can go and actually get my children up and ready for nursery- all this before 7.30am in the morning. Unless you are a blogger you will think I am totally mad for rushing to post this but these blogs do strange things to us I swear.
This month I am sending you over to my lovely friend Lucy to check out the snaps of her two little people. It was her birthday on Friday so be sure to say Happy belated Birthday while you are over there too!
