My Sisters In March.

on Monday, 10 March 2014.

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.

This month I am sending you over to Lauren's blog.  Her blog is one of the first blogs I started reading and is still one of my favourites today.  Be sure to go and have a little look at her gorgeous boys and what they have been up to this month.

    I always resonate so much with what you're saying when you're talking about your girls... Maybe because mine are similar ages! Our pictures this month were also at the playground! Got to get out in this lovely weather after all that rain! Glad you had a happy birthday!x

      I definitely think you can resonate if you have children of a similar age. And it's lovely to get some outside shots this month isn't it? Thanks Claire. x

    They look adorable playing side by side in that seesaw toy. And I'm actually rather fond of the first photo where LL is crying and Mads looks cheeky. We have a lot of photos like that from my childhood, where one of us annoyed the other right as the shutter was pressed. It's kind of classic childhood in a way!

    These photos are gorgeous! Your girls really remind me of my two when they were little - it was always the youngest who was the feisty one in our house too!

    I love all these photos, even the one where LL wasn't playing ball. The one of the two of them on the see saw is adorable.

    It doesn't get any easier when they start walking and running. I'm lucky to get a good shot of K on his own, let alone with his sister as he's flying around the place!

    Ah, lovely photos. I do think the little squabbles can be as entertaining as them contentedly playing, though I love the cuddles the most!

    Oh I just love that picture of LL on the seesaw - it's the little stuck out tongue that just makes it perfect! I know what you mean about the days of easy photos being over, if I asked Kitty to hold Elma she ends up doing a bit of a heimlich manoeuvre on her, and I too have a rogues gallery of Kitty looking gorgeous and Elma's feet as she crawls out of shot!

    Ahh they look like they are having a brilliant time at the park. Meg is exactly the same as Mads, she just can't relax when she smiles and it comes across really awkward bless her!
