The siblings project – February 2017

Last month I joined in with the Siblings project for the first time.

And, even though it’s still early days, I have a feeling I might manage this project every month this year.  Even if the photos aren’t exactly what I’d like them to be.

See, I saw some really gorgeous photos from other bloggers as part of the project last month.  And it made me really want to make an effort with my two this month.  To take the time to actually do a sort of mini photo shoot with them.  It was in my calendar to do it and everything.

But still, it just didn’t happen.  When I looked through our photos from the last month though, I found I did have a couple of pictures of the two of them together.

Not quite the set of photos I had imagined, but I’m happy nonetheless.

Despite all the coughs and colds we have managed to get out to the beach a few times in the last few weeks.  Rhys and Nerys both love it down there, even when it’s so cold you need your hoody hood up and your coat on over the top.

They both love digging in the sand, looking for treasure and building sandcastles.  For the most part they do this nicely together, but they do have their moments when they’d rather just do something by themselves for a bit.

They are good friends at the moment though.

Nerys was at nursery today and was so excited to tell me that she had seen Rhys when they went out to play in the yard.  I love that they have that reaction to seeing each other, they were both so happy about it.

And on one occasion recently I left Nerys at home with Daddy while I went to pick Rhys up from school.  The first thing he said to me when he came out of his classroom was “where’s my sister?”.

Nerys still wants to be like her big brother, and wants to do the things that he does.  And at the moment, she really wants to play Minecraft with him.

She’ll sit really close to him on the sofa, and watch him as he plays.  Sometimes it gets a bit too much for Rhys, and he asks her to move away.  Other times though, he will tell her all about what he’s doing.  And then he’ll let her help, telling her what blocks to use and where to put them.

It’s really lovely to see, even if it doesn’t always last!

    It’s a lovely project to take part in and I have some wonderful photos of my girls that I probably wouldn’t have had. Its nice to look back at the end of the year and see how much they’ve changed. I love that last photo, such a sweet sibling moment and reminds me of my own childhood, watching my big brother x

    Lovely to see them together, getting on well. Wish we were closer but at least we can see them here!

    That last photo of them together on the sofa is so lovely. It’s funny because I’ve found I end up with quite a lot of pictures of my son using the ipad because it’s one of the rare moments when he is still, but then when I share them it looks like he spends a disproportionate amount of time using it!

      Haha, I know what you mean, my son doesn’t sit still for long unless he’s on the ipad or the pc! x

    Ah these are such happy photos. I try and get out and have a certain time to do them each month too but sometimes life just gets in the way! x
