March. Finally I think we can say that spring is here! Hurrah! I feel like we have been waiting for it forever. The nights are starting to get ever so lighter and we are finally eating our tea whilst it’s still light rather than it being dark outside and all the lights in the house on. There’s something about spring that makes me feel fresh and ready to start a new beginning. Finally, I feel motivated to start that diet that was supposed to have commenced in January and I feel more inclined to have a walk to the park with K and D after tea instead of slumping out in front of the TV. The mornings are lighter so it doesn’t seem as horrific when D wakes me up at 6am ready to get up for the day! K really benefits from the nights being lighter and the weather being better. She is such an outdoors girl so she is thriving now we can actually fit a park run in our day or take a day out to the farm. It also means she sleeps better at nap time and bedtime as the fresh air has tired her out. Surely there’s a win-win in that!? ha!. Our life is a super jam packed one this March so having time to photograph my two together has been a bit tricky but we managed to do it – just.
My siblings in March
I mentioned last month that the bond between K and D was so fierce and so strong and I can only comment that this month has seen it go from strength to strength! They absolutely adore one another. The look of love that D gives to K is so amazing, it makes my heart melt.
K is an amazing big sister and I am finding this month that she is desperate to help out with him a little bit more even if it’s something as simple as fetching me a clean nappy or a clean dummy. The help is always appreciated and it makes her feel like she has a purpose. D is the first thing on K’s mind from the minute she wakes up and is desperate to see where he is and what he is doing. She is particularly fond of sitting next to him whilst he is in his bouncing chair and watching baby TV with him. It’s the one thing they can do “together” at the moment.
D is getting to the age now (nearly 6 months old) where he is paying attention to a lot more stuff and reaching out to grab items such as toys and teethers so K “plays” with them with D. He is also trying to sit up and lift his head up more and every time he does it K shouts “Good boy D” or “Well done little fella” (she copies her Mummy and Daddy a lot haha) It’s so great that she is there to encourage him and cheer him on. I hope she continues to be his cheerleader when they are older and I hope he does the same for her.
It’s so lovely as a mummy to hear your children giggling together. I mentioned last month that K is the one person that can make D laugh and this is very much the same this month. She’s currently at a stage where she’s learning to share a little bit more and is enjoying sharing her toys with D (whether he can play with them or not – he is having them).
I feel excited about the future and look forward to seeing over the coming months how my sibling’s relationship grows.
