Eleven weeks old today, my boys don’t have much of a siblingly relationship yet. They seem to be aware that the other is there, and occasionally we realise that they are holding hands (although we think that is likely by accident), but the bond is not yet there. That’s okay; they’re only tiny still.
Ever since we learned that the boys were of the male persuasion, I’ve been fascinated by the concept of brothers. I find myself wondering frequently what their relationship will be like, imagining them holding hands as toddlers, sneaking out of the house together as teenagers, ‘best man’ at each other’s weddings.
Whilst none of this will be happening this year, I’m nonetheless wildly excited to be cohosting The Siblings Project, the brainchild of the lovely Lucy over at Dear Beautiful. Every month I – and the other members of the Siblings Project team – will be capturing some images of our children’s siblingly relationships and writing about them on our blogs.
We took the boys out for yet another wintry walk through the woods. As you can probably tell from the blog, we spend rather a lot of time out of doors even in the colder months. It’s certainly easier to take our photographs outside rather than battling to find enough natural light indoors, even if we do have to dress the boys in a bazillion layers in order to prevent them from crying. In these pictures, they’re each wearing their nappies, socks, two bodysuits, leggings, trousers, a t-shirt and their jumpers! They looked like little weebles.
Could you identify these two as brothers? I’m not sure that I could…
Their furry ‘sister’ insisted on sharing the attention.
Some mummy-babies love. Aaw.
This month I’m sending you over to Annie at Mammasaurus, who blogs from my favourite place in the world. Her photography is just gorgeous, and she has a knack for capturing her children as people, rather than the blog accessories that I sometimes feel mine to be! I could spend all day on the Mammasaurus blog, losing myself in her words and images.
Have you taken any pictures of your children this month? Link them up below, and post them over at our brand new Facebook page.
