I had high hopes for my siblings photos this month. I was going to take beautifully posed shots on the pirate bed of the Legoland hotel. The reality was very different and it turns out both children are quicker than us! This was the result.
So we resorted to the good old sofa shots which Ethan really wasn’t in the mood for. So here are our siblings photos for May.
Even though we couldn’t get Ethan to look at the camera and they are both clearly interested in the iPad I quite like these photos as they really capture their relationship at the moment.
Little E clearly adores her brother and is always trying to head in his direction, mostly to steal the iPad, but sometimes she will just want to touch his head.
Ethan tolerates her closeness, his cuddles for us are always given on his terms and although he needs to have us close by he doesn’t like us to be too close. All contact is really on his terms. So Little E is pushing him out of his comfort zone and he is taking it quite well.
They have started to get into mischief together, they both now know how to work the buttons on the Sky + box. Ethan likes to rewind it and Little E will turn it off or change the channels!
This month Ethan started school and he also turned five which meant we had a family weekend at Legoland. It was hard work for us, I don’t know who thought taking a nine month old to a theme park was a good idea, but they both enjoyed it.
Little E has really been enjoying her time with us, we are really seeing her personality now and she is turning into quite a cheeky monkey.
We have started lots of activities both now have swimming lessons, and Little E has Sing and Sign and Baby Ballet. So we have all started to get very busy.
It’s lovely to watch their developing bond and as much as I know she will keep us on our toes, I can’t wait for them to be running around together.
