My Sisters in February.

on Monday, 10 February 2014.





These sisters of mine are growing up quickly and their relationship and bond is growing and changing all the time.  Mads has always been an incredible big sister from the second she first met her 'baby' and LL has always been in awe of Mads constantly smiling and giggling at her in the early days.  But now their relationship has become a lot more interactive.  

It's funny to watch them now.  They snuggle all the time and Mads constantly plays with her sister's ear as she has always done, but LL is starting to become mischevious.  She will crawl and try and eat the toys Mads is playing with, or knock down the towers she is building and Mads will get cross.  Or the latest is that when Mads tries to cuddle LL, LL will push her away and get grumpy.  This usually results in Mads doing a dramatic comedy fall which will make them both dissolve into giggles.  It is very sweet to watch but I know that LL is going to keep Mads on her toes.  Mads is incredibly affectionate and cuddly towards everyone, and I am not sure whether LL is going to be quite as leniant.  She adores cuddles from Mummy but has to be in the right mood to receive them off anyone else.

Mads will always ask for her sister, and include her in the things she does.  She will call for her and LL will crawl towards her as fast as lightening.  I think Mads is desperate for her to play and interact more, often asking her to do things to which obviously she can't understand.    They play in their own little way, usually involving dancing and being silly, and our house is just full of their giggles.  

It's wonderful watching them together.  When I took the above photos, they had just woken up and Mads got into LL's cot.  She was jumping up and down and making LL laugh, which in turn fuelled her to do it even more- she loves making her little sister chuckle.  Sometimes their age gap seems large, but then other times, like then, it feels like there isn't much between them at all.  That gap will probably feel even smaller as they get older.

 I often find myself wondering what they will be like as teenagers and all I can hope is that they will be the best of friends.  Mr E often jokes that he needs to get a shed so he can hide in the garden from all the women and hormones in this house.  Looking at this mischevious pair and the way they are fast becoming a little double act, I would say he might be right.



This month I am sending you to have a look at Keri-Anne's blog.  It is a beautiful, dreamy blog full of gorgeous photography of life with her two little fairies, who are a similar age gap to my girls but older, so I love to look at what they get up too.

    I think I'm going to need a shed to get away from all the boys in my house! Love the matching PJs. Looks like they were having a lot of fun whilst you were taking these photos.

    HOW cute are these photos? And HOW cute are your girls? Their relationship sounds so lovely. It reminds me of what my boys were like when they were the same age. Such a lovely time xx

      It really is a lovely stage in their relationship- so full of promise but different now because they are really learning to interact with each other. x

    Ahh they are so lovely together and they sound like they will only get closer as they get older. There is a year and half between my brother and I and even now, whenever we are together, we regress to being children!

    Oh they look so happy and they're matching sleepsuits are adorable! I've never thought to put Athena and Troy in the cot together, I'm sure they'd love it - Going to give it a go and see what happens! x

    I LOVE THESE PHOTOS - they are some of my faves of your girls, the mischief in their eyes as they jump around the cot, the unruly hair, the matching PJ's, perfection.
    Mads has always been such a good sister and in turn LL with allowing ear touches etc has matched her perfectly, I feel for Mr E when he has 2 teenagers and their Mummy xxx

    Lovely photos, Katie. LL looks so much like Mr E in these. And poor Mr E, does he have a piggy bank to squirrel away his shed money? ;-)

    I love Mads' face in the first one! I've never left my two in the cot together, they might be getting on better but I still don't think they're at that stage yet! xx
