The Siblings Project - August

It's been a little while since I updated you on the siblings relationship between my two girls. The last update I did was in June and you may remember that I said their bond has taken a while to form. You can read the post here if you missed it, The Siblings Project June

Ophelia has always been amazed by her big sister but the feeling wasn't quite reciprocated. Fortunately, in the last couple of months we have seen a huge improvement.



Eva now seems to include her sister in playing. She quite regularly talks to her and is now concerned if she is crying or upset. I'm probably making it sound like Eva hated Ophelia. That's not the case at all, she just genuinely wasn't that bothered interacting with her.



At the end of last month we went on holiday to Turkey. It was a lovely holiday. The girls swam together in the pool and sea. They played on the beach together and they really enjoyed each other's company. The evenings were sometimes difficult as Ophelia was desperate to play with her sister and seeing as she's not on the move yet, she couldn't chase her around the restaurants. 




Ophelia recently went on a swing for the very first time, which she did with her big sister next to her. She was loving life. It was so adorable to see. You could tell she thought she was chocolate being able to do the same things Eva was doing. Eva also enjoyed it too, especially being able to push her.


We've had lots of nice weather recently which means the girls have spent a lot of time in the garden. One area they love is in their teepee. Well, that was until I broke it. It's a plastic one so it's easily done!! They've sat in it and read lots of books together. 



They've also eaten outside quite a few times for bbq's, picnics and I recently prepared them an afternoon tea. I made sandwiches, cakes and some savoury muffins. The savoury muffins were a big hit so i'll have to share the recipe on here.



They love singing together. One of their favourite songs is 'Girls Like' by Tinie Tempah. Both of them dance and sing. It's so funny to watch.

Next month will be a huge change for both the girls. It will see Eva starting preschool for 2.5 hours a day and Ophelia will also be going to a nursery one day a week. Big sob fest coming up for me.

  12. The bond is there and it will grow stronger as soon as your youngest daughter will start to walk and be more playful. Usually vacations are great for bonding between siblings, as you noticed in Turkey.

  15. I'm so pleased your girls are developing a bond, it's such a worry intoducing a new baby into the family. We've found the same with Santi to an extent, he loves trying to play with Ezra but if he's busy doing something he doesn't seem to care that Ezra needs to be fed or is upset. I guess they're just too young to develop empathy yet.
