Siblings {July}

I’m still not quite sure how it can possibly be July already. I’m so not ready for the winter.

As usual I left my wall photos until yesterday and annoyingly just before I got my camera out I witnessed some of the sweetest sibling behaviour to date. Tiger has started giving Cherry proper cuddles, he goes up to her and puts his arms around her and it makes me a little bit emotional every time I see him do it. On this occasion he was also stroking her hair and putting her hand up to his cheek, which is where he puts things for comfort.

I’m quite glad I didn’t get my camera out though because it would have spoilt the moment for them, and for me.

Of courseΒ when it did come to getting them to pose for the camera Tiger wasn’t falling for any of my ‘give Cherry a cuddle’ requests!

They did enjoy eating a biscuit together though, not that I let them have a biscuit in the hope they would sit still for two minutes or anything πŸ˜‰

Bite for a bite?!

And I had to add in the photos below as I think the top one isΒ my favourite photo of them together of all time. Annoyingly they were taken on my iPhone though so the quality isn’t great but they make me smile every time I look at them.

Tiger was making monkey noises and Cherry thought it was hilarious.

It’s been so special to witness the bond between them lately, they really are great friends which makes me so happy.

This month I’m sending you over to Chloe from Sorry About The Mess, her blog was one of the first I started reading and is one of my favourites. She takes gorgeous photos of her family and writes really honestly about all kinds of parenting related topics.

  1. They’ve really bonded so strongly over the last few months and you can see they’re really good friends. Gorgeous pics. Biccies are the best form of bribery πŸ˜‰

  2. Ah, the biscuit trick – genius! That’s pretty much the only way I can get my two to stay put, too! Sounds like they’re really getting along, and how sweet of Tiger to go up to his big sister for cuddles. Gorgeous photos, love the laughing ones x

    Bribery and corruption for photos all the way! I’m definitely a fan of the power of a well applied biscuit! Biscuit or no biscuit they look so happy together; especially in the monkey noises shots!
