Siblings in December (and throughout the year)


An entire year of siblings project completed! Say what??

December's been my favourite month for these two and their relationship by far.
If they weren't thick as thieves before they certainly are now! A combination of Christmas spirit and Lily being solidly off school for a fortnight has seen to that.

 I'm so glad it's been this way instead of a disaster because I distinctly remember the last holidays, October half term, they were working each others last nerves as well as mine ha ha.

I've done a collage of some of my favourite photos of the two of them throughout the past 12 months and my god has it made me emotional. It's so strange looking back at the early updates from the year and reading my frustrations about Archer not walking and how desperate Lily was for him to walk. It feels like a different lifetime. A different child even. I can barely remember him that little now, and that makes my heart hurt more than I care to admit. 

December


Looking through photos old and new, I keep seeing a familiar scene. Lily supporting Archer, holding him up, taking his hand, encouraging him and giving him cuddles (whether they're wanted or not...) She's amazing. And she was so made to be a big sister. 

These photos make me happy. And thankful, both for what I've got and for the memories I have to look back on. That's two years I've been taking part in the Siblings Project now and long may it last. It pushes me to capture my kids in a way in which I don't think I'd manage so regularly otherwise. It allows me to watch them grow both individually and together and for that I'm ever so grateful.
