So here we are, the last siblings project post of 2018.
I’m so pleased that I’ve managed to stick with it again this year; I really love having this little record of my two each month.
What I always find so funny is that I don’t seem to notice day to day, and month to month even, how much they’re changing and growing. And then I look back at photos of them and realise quite how much they have actually grown and how their little faces have changed.
My photo of them for this month’s siblings project was taken at Bluestone last week after we were lucky enough to be offered a stay there.
We had a holiday there last May and the children hadn’t stopped talking about it since, so we were all extremely excited to get to go back, and experience the resort at a different time of year.
I took a photo of Rhys and Nerys by the dragon on the way into the village, and then found a very similar photo that we took on our first trip.
I can’t quite believe how much younger they look in the photo from last year!
I think because Nerys can remember so much about that first holiday, it feels like it wasn’t all that long ago. But when I actually think about it, she hadn’t long turned 3 when we went, which just feels a bit crazy.
A lot has happened in the last 18 months, and both the children had some big changes with moving up a year at school and adjusting to new routines and new expectations.
I’m so proud of the pair of them.
Now we’re winding down for Christmas and the end of the year, I’m quite excited to see what 2019 has in store for them.
