The Siblings Project - March

 I can't believe it's taken me this long to join in with The Siblings Project. It's a great way of documenting the relationship between my girls every month including all the ups and downs.

Eva was 3 in January and Ophelia turned 4 months old last week. When Ophelia was first born, Eva really wasn't keen. She was completely disinterested and didn't want to interact with her at all. 4 months on and their relationship couldn't be any more different.

Eva is still very much Miss Independent but every now and again she tries to interact with her sister. She's very caring towards her now. If she is ever crying she is the first one to comfort her, telling her that everything is going to be ok. She will then come and tell me that Ophelia needs my milk. She loves to change her nappies and likes to pick out outfits for her to wear. She does shout at her a lot too though. If she is pulling her hair, she gets very annoyed and if she cries or makes noises in the car when one of her favourite songs is on such as 'let it go', she goes nuts. 


Ophelia is besotted with her sister. She watches her every move and giggles at everything she does. You can see that she idolises her. 



In this last month i've really seen their relationship change. They are both finally interested in each other and always looking for attention from each other. It's such a lovely thing to see.

They've had a pretty exciting month together. The first half of the month we were still in Australia. They had plenty of trips to the beach, a trip to Sydney and a mini holiday to Surfer's Paradise. The supergirl picture was taken at Movie World theme park. I love it. It's one of my favourite pictures of them.



It was Mother's Day this month and I honestly had the most amazing day as my first as a mum of 2. The girls laughed and smiled all day which made me feel so grateful. I am loving watching their bond develop. I look forward to updating you on their relationship next month.

  9. Turning into another guardian is one of the best endowments life brings to the table. While there are a million distinctive child rearing styles and there is regularly no set in stone, the exhortation in this article will help you get the most satisfaction out of your infant.

  12. It;s so lovely to hear that they are starting to get interact with each other and get on so well. 13 months on and we are still struggling to get a good balance - my eldest has found it hard going from being the only child to being an older brother and we would of loved to have had the gap a little closer as it was 4.5yrs but we will get there in the end

  13. This sounds very much like my two boys - Toby really wasn't interested in his brother at first but now Gabe is 8 months they are interacting a lot more. You can see your two obvious adore each other. And how cute is that rabbit hat?? #siblingsproject
