Siblings is a monthly portrait project from the lovely DearBeautiful, sharing the captures of our little ones as they bond as siblings, love as siblings, fight as siblings, and everything in between.
Whilst I have been extremely sick lately and trying to keep up with these two rascals I have tried to still capture these two in their finest moments. I have noticed lately they both have become regular comedians. The cheekiness is in both of their eyes and they are constantly not only making Mr P and I laugh but making each other squeal with laughter by doing the most normal things like sitting on the kitchen floor with Missy Moo’s famous ducky creating over an hour of giggles. I never knew a little ducky could make two tots laugh so hard. It’s moments like these that make me so grateful to have two beautiful babies. I have given them each other, a forever best friend. The one that has been there from the beginning and will be there until the end.
The older Missy Moo gets the more I am seeing a change in the dynamic of their relationship. Before, Buba was more of a protector to his babysitter over everything even her falling over when she learned to walk. He used to brush her hair and fetch her dollies for her. The more independent she becomes, she has become his partner in crime, his everyday playmate. They are becoming more equals. He still wants to protect her but on a much bigger level. He lets her be more independent too, cheering her on from the side lines. I am loving this new equal dynamic.
They both sit at the table in big kid chairs now.
They both sip from big kid cups now.
They both feed themselves or each other now.
They both play independently and together not needing mommy so much now.
It’s hard to let go of my last baby being a baby. I can vouch that having two toddlers is a lot harder than it ever was having a baby & toddler and a lot sadder as I know that my baby days are over. That era is closed now. But as I watch them both being more equal and doing more grown up things I get excited for the future. I get excited for the things we will soon be able to do and enjoy as they age.
November has brought on these two tot’s cheekiness to its all time highest. It has shown these two siblings are now equals. May the giggles and laughter long last through the new year!
