#Siblings August 2015



I’ve loved observing the dynamic between Becky and Alex this month. They are both becoming increasingly confident around each other, with Becky frequently tickling, kissing and trying to pick up Alex (which she fails at, as he’s such a whopper!), and Alex following Becky around, trying to pull her hair (affectionately, I like to think!), and generally seeking her company, even when she’s busy with stuff, like drawing or watching the iPad and doesn’t want to know.

Every morning Alex and Becky wake around the same time, and Becky is now insisting that I bring Alex into her room first thing so she can say hello to her “Smally” and give him a kiss (while I have to hold his hands, so he doesn’t pull her hair, which is his usual reaction).

She really encourages Alex in his development, whenever he’s done something new, she’ll be saying “Good boy, Alex”, but she also tells him off when he is crawling somewhere or picking up something he is not supposed to. It’s lovely that she is developing a good sense and awareness of what he is and isn’t allowed to, and she actually helps me keep an eye on him and keep him safe.

Alex adores Becky and always wants to be where she is. He’s so happy when she gives him the time of day and plays with him, especially passing his little soft ball backwards and forwards, or when they both play away with the Duplo blocks.

And they look more and more alike, my blond and blue eyed babies. Love them so much!

    1. Thanks Alice! It is a nice stage they're at, and Becky is a lovely protective and supportive sister, which is great to see.

  2. Have you found that your youngest is developing much quicker having an older sibling?

    1. Not physically, he's still a bit lazy on his mobility etc, but I do think that he is developing mentally quite rapidly, he is so aware of everything Becky does and the things she has or plays with, so I think there is an element of him copying his sister maybe a bit sooner than he would have otherwise done.

  3. Such a pair of cuties. And it's so lovely that their bond is growing all the time; I remember this with my little pair as they began to get really interested in one another. It's such an exciting time. x

    1. It is! I couldn't be happier, I just love seeing their bond grow and Becky being a proper big sister, and Alex adoring her. x

  4. Ah, beautiful photos and they do look very alike. Sounds similar to my kids relationship with one another, as my daughter is always praising my son when he does new things or does something well, and then tells him off when he's up to mischief!

    1. That's really lovely, isn't it? I'm so glad she takes such an interest in Alex now (it wasn't like that initially, so I'm not taking it for granted). I'm so fascinated by a sibling relationship - I'm an only child and never had this, so I love seeing my kids together.

    1. Aw, thank you so much! That's so kind, I'm very flattered. I suppose I'm still quite new, and I definitely still have a lot to learn when it comes to promoting my blog properly. Will look forward to "meeting" you more often in the blogosphere. :-)

    1. Thank you Colette! They do now; it wasn't like that in the begining, it took Becky about six months to become interested in her baby brother. Thankfully, she is now close to obsessed with him, so I'm very happy about that. x

  8. What beautiful photos and love how Becky has to give her "Smally" a kiss first thing in the morning. So lovely to see such a close bond between them :-)
