Siblings 2017 – December – Looking Back On A Year

The third year done and dusted of the Siblings project. I can’t believe it! I’ve had my completed set of sisters for three years now. This photography project has been the only one I have stuck at. I love documenting our journey and how they grow. I think the previous two years have been the ones where you can see …

Siblings 2017 – November

I am very late uploading this. In fact I think it’s the latest I’ve published my Siblings post ever! It’s been a hectic month for us as a family with lots of adventures and settling in to our new home. Generally life seems the busiest it has ever been and I’m struggling to juggle everything. P1 has been leading a …

Siblings 2017 – October

It has been all about change this past month. The girls have been a teeny bit neglected and we’ve barely had any fun moments due to being consumed by decorating our new house in time for our move. But we some how made it to the other side alive. P1 doesn’t deal with change very well and this past month …

Siblings 2017 – April

We’ve made it to the end of the Easter holidays. Two full weeks of having my girls at home and with another one more with two of them. It’s been nice not having early mornings and routines, I used to hate the school holidays but I really relish the more relaxed vibe. The weather has even been relatively kind to …

Siblings 2017 – February

I’ve felt like the month has flown by and it’s absurd that we are already in February. February is a big month for us. P2 turned four years old, my stepdad is giving my mum one of his kidneys and the girls are starting new groups, activities and having play dates again. I’m writing our Siblings post with only a …

Siblings 2017 – January

This is the start of our third year taking part in the Siblings Project. I am pretty grateful that Lucy at Dear Beautiful came up with this linky project. It means that I can watch my girls grow in their relationships all in one place each month. This year I wanted to do things a little differently. I took more …

Siblings 2016 – January

For me the Siblings Project starts another year, our second year and once again I’m a little bit late in getting photos and posting. Our weekends are the only time that my girls get to spend quality time as a threesome. The rest of the week is dotted with P3 spending time on her own, or just P2 and P3 …

Sibling Differences

It was inevitable that my daughters would be very different. Right from the beginning of my parenting journey when P1 was born prematurely, she set the motions for the future, for the right now. She’s so different to her younger sister and as P2 grows the differences stand out like a sore thumb. A bit like the lack of hair …

To My Princess 2 – 11 Months

To Princess 2, I cannot believe that you are 11 months old today. The time is just flying by so fast now. This past month you’ve really started to show a pretty cheeky personality. You know exactly what you want and you get it. Still no walking, but you crawl super quick and even follow us when we call your …

“We have a crawler”

We have a crawler. This is the first real indication that our baby is becoming independent and grown up. With this independence has come increased dangers. It happened overnight, one minute we had a bum shuffling, arms-dragging-body-in-a-circle little 9 month old then we woke up one morning and she got up onto her hands and knees and started to move …

“she turned towards me and instantly fell asleep”

I’ve been trying, loosely, to wean from co-sleeping. I say loosely because I usually get more and better sleep when we co-sleep so I’m fine with her in bed. My OH misses our cuddles and waking up to me in the morning. He now wakes up, more often than not, to P2 smacking him in the face. Not quite so …

Feeling Calmer

I cannot believe how grown up P1 is. She’s always been very mature for her age but recently she’s been outstanding especially with her little sister! In the past few days she’s been so helpful. Actually asking to change P2s bottom, get her dressed and give her a bottle. This evening she wanted to feed her sister her dinner, and …

To My Princesses – Letter 7

To my Princesses, So today, now P2 is beyond three months I’m going to write monthly letters to each of you separately. I thought this way it will be more personal for the both of you – P1 on the 24th of each month and P2 on the 6th. So this letter is my last joint letter to you both. …

Guilt Ridden

I keep looking at P2 and realising how lucky I truly am. She’s perfect in every way, she’s healthy, she’s growing, she’s developing and she’s feeding. I frequently feel guilty about the luck that has been showered over us. So many women struggle, they struggle to conceive, they struggle to grow a baby, they struggle to feed, they struggle to …
