It’s so fantastic seeing their relationship blossom, it’ll be an important source of support for them both as they get older and potentially have Jude’s care as a responsibility on their shoulders in adulthood. Emmeline adores her older sister and yesterday sat on her lap on the couch simultaneously watching her favourite programme (Hey Duggee) and giving Elsa kisses on the face. I didn’t want to move to grab my camera as I was afraid I’d ruin the moment but I did manage to get a snap of them still embracing when I did eventually slope off the couch…
We went to the park and they played together, Elsa happily pushing Emmeline on the swing and helping her on the roundabout. They are literally two peas in a pod with their independence and dare devil attitude – Emmeline preferred not to hold on to the roundabout (see first roundabout image) and thought it was hilarious when she nearly fell off twice. This is something Elsa would have done at that age and she finds it fantastic to have a little protege in the making.
Elsa below, moving the roundabout really slowly because of her sisters crazy preference for stepping off whilst still in motion.
Walking home…looks so harmonious but literally two minutes later when we reached the outskirts of the park and I had to put Emmeline back in the buggy, she turned into a screaming lunatic. She was fine once the straps were done up but she hates the getting in process!
So that’s our daughters in the last twenty four hours. Emmeline happy that Elsa is off school for half term and Elsa happy Jude isn’t yet off school. It’s bliss all round!
Siblings – Do your children have a special relationship? I know it won’t be happiness and joy 24/7 but so far our girls really do enjoy each others company. A x
