Oh August you’re our favourite month. Its’ the month you get to spend all of it together, just two sisters having fun, celebrating their birthdays and making memories.
We’re in full summer holiday mode and the girls have fallen into their little pattern that they tend to do during the holidays. There is always a game of the holiday, that they will then play over and over throughout. This summer, its definitely mummies, babies and making a den to live in.
August is our crazy busy month with both the girls birthdays and Andy’s in the middle too. Through in our family holiday and we don’t stop! But it’s our normal and the girls love having their birthdays close together. We’ve just celebrated Alice’s 7th birthday and she had a great time. It’s not always easy being an August baby and seeing all your friends get a year older before you, but a sign that Alice is growing up this year she didn’t really talk about that. Whereas with Holly, its all she talks about and we still have another week to go until her birthday.
The girls are loving the summer holidays and a chance to be together. They really are the best of friends and I actually get a bit jealous of their relationship, which probably sounds strange. But I would’ve loved a sister, and as I look into the future for my girls. They are so lucky that they are going to have someone they can share clothes with, share their secrets with, go shopping with and know that they’ve always got a best friend right by their side.
It’s not all lovely siblings moments, there are squabbles and fights too. There have been times that I’ve had to separate them, but within 5 minutes they’ve made there way back to each and calm is restored. But that’s siblings for you, they all do it and generally they are short lived.
Every year I take photos of the girls for their birthdays and these photos have been my siblings photos since I started my blog. I love seeing the changes in them over the years.
