My girls…February

My girls…February

For the last week Alice has been really poorly and just when I think she is getting better, we are back to the beginning again.This has meant that getting a picture of the two of them has been a challenge, not only because Alice is poorly, but also it’s getting difficult to keep Holly still for longer than two minutes.

Even though Alice has been poorly, Holly hasn’t wanted to be without her. She would climb up in her bed and say ‘row row’, and Alice would sing row row the boat for her little sister. They never want to be apart and Alice would do anything for her little sister, even ill in bed.


As I write this, Alice and I are snuggled in bed, while Holly is napping. Alice is really tired, but doesn’t want to have a sleep, so I’m hoping she might doze off while snuggled up…


But, this morning Alice was feeling a bit perkier and we decided that we could all do with some fresh air. For a long time Alice has asked me if she can take her dolls pram with us on the walk and I have always been a cruel mummy and said ‘no’. The reason being that I would struggle to manage her walking safely, while also pushing Holly in the pushchair. So, today with daddy with us and Alice needing to be cheered up a bit, I suggested she took her dolls pram. She was very excited…look at that smile.

Of course I had to take one for Holly too, as at the moment she wants to be just like her big sister. When we arrived at the park, Holly had a go with her pushchair too. They were very cute together pushing them along with their dolls, Alice making sure that Holly was keeping up with her.


When we got back I did attempt to get them to sit nicely together, as I just don’t have as many photos of them together at this age, as I did when Holly couldn’t move…

Not the best photo, but then it does sum up our life right now…Holly being a monkey and not sitting still, with Alice trying to give her a hug.



The love they have for each other grows each month and they love to be with each other, I hope this continues and they will always love having each other…

    Alice’s little face with that pushchair is just gorgeous! Happiness personified.
    Sorry you’re having such a tough time of it with illness and a troublesome toddler (I have the same here so feel your pain!) but I’m sure things will be on the up soon.
    Helps now the sun is out (maybe only for today but it’s made me feel better seeing blue skies that’s for sure!) x

      Thank you 🙂 She was so happy, such a simple thing, that bought her so much joy. Luckily she is feeling much better and we are hoping to get out and about for the rest of this week. x

    Oh the two of them pushing the toy prams together is so cute, you will be able to keep it to show them when they are mums themselves. Its lovely that they are so close, I am hoping my two little boys will form a similar bond once number two makes his arrival in May xx
