Those of you who regularly read my blog will know that Cherry and J didn’t get off to a very good start but I’m so pleased to say that I’ve finally watched the relationship between blossom.
Don’t get me wrong, she still has moments of taking her anger out on him but they have been outnumbered by moments where she is nice to him.
I love the 1st photo, she was giving him a cuddle and it looks like she’s thinking ‘ahh this is so nice’ while he is thinking ‘get her off me!’.
The 2nd photo was taken at soft-play. They have a seat in the window that my two always sit in and I love the way she is staring intently at him like he is telling her the most interesting story ever.
The 3rd photo was taken while I was eating pancakes. They wouldn’t try them but kept stealing the lemon and Cherry would give some to J then have some herself before he grabbed it back off her. They are crazy!
And the 4th one was taken on the evening J started giving cuddles on demand. Cherry followed him round the room asking for one after the other and he was happy to oblige, for a while at least!
I feel like I’m finally see signs of what I thought it would be like to have two children. J’s eyes light up when Cherry does things to make him laugh and I came into their bedroom the other day to find they had both climbed up on the sofa, they were giggling like mad together and it was so lovely to see.
It’s taken nearly a year but it looks like seeing them being nice to each other has finally become an ordinary moment.
