B, this week you are a mini version of your big Uncle Russ. I always thought you resembled him in the way you stand or talk and a little in your looks but nothing prepared me for when Uncle Russ stood next to you and I could really see just how similar you both are to each other. It blows my mind watching you both together. I love that you instantly bonded with him and put him so high up on a pedal stool already. You are dying for him to let you wear his hat each day and teach you baseball. There is nothing sweeter than watching you bond with him. I love that you have more than just Daddy as a male role model in your life. I hope you grow up to be close to your uncles as I am mine. That’s one of the beauties of having a big family and so many to help support, love, and guide you on your journey of life.
MM, this week you got taller, bigger, and have grown over night into this little girl. I feel like you never were really a baby long. You are a true outdoor kind of girl just like your cousins. It’s funny how much you resemble me when I was little but also how much you are like your cousin too. Uncle Russ keep saying how much you are like his daughter and how much B is like his son. While I look at you both together and think of me and Uncle Russ growing up, he sees you both similar to his own kids who are older now. You have always taken your time to get to know people and let them in but with Uncle Russ you didn’t take a minute. You were in his arms, climbing all over and pulling him around the house in no time at all. Even on the first day I had to pry you from his arms for your nap as you wanted to keep playing. Its something in our family genes that make us immediately feel so close to each other, I swear. I love that our extended family is so close so that you kids can be close to all your extended family like I am to Grandma’s family. You love with all your heart when it comes to family. You are talking more this week and wanting to have full conversations with everyone even if it comes out like straight gibberish. Your voice is changing too. It no longer has that baby squeak. You are catching up with your brother in so many ways. I love as you both get older the age gap seems to be smaller. You keep up with him or even surpass him on great adventures out

Fabulous pics of them on the beach. MM looks really cheeky looking at the camera there. It’s great when they’re close to wider family. Just the same as N with his on both sides too.
Oh thank you darling. We always have so much fun on the beach together. It’s a beautiful spot. The kids love the sand.
Alexandra @dontcallmestepmummy says
I LOVE these pictures. I just adore Missy Moo in these colours (I know I said on your Siblings post) just so beautiful with her blonde locks. Buba is just getting so big. He looks really tall and independent. Stunningly written as always #livingarrows
Thank you Alexandra you are too sweet. I love her in yellow but maybe because it’s my favourite color. Hahaha her new coat is a fave of mine too lately. B is so tall lately won’t be long he will be past me.

The beach looks lovely and gorgeous captures of the children. I love what you write about them each week, so sweet.
Thank you Gemma. I love having something I can put together at the end of the year for them each year and keep in a book for the future so they can read it all together from me.

Such cute pictures, we love the beach too x
It’s so fun to just play in the open fresh air next to the water. Thanks Hun.
Aww such gorgeous pictures of both of them! It looks like a stunning beach and I swear MM grows up and up and up in every photo recently!
Thanks Carie. I know I feel that too when I look at them. She is changing almost everyday on me. WEEP! lol
Oh my gosh they are growing up! And your girl LOOKS SO CUTE IN THOSE WELLIES! Bet it was lovely to have some of your family back together x
Yes it was so truly wonderful and the kids bonded with my brother so much. I can’t stop raving about it. I love that he came to visit me. The beach is lovely where we live unfortunately those wellies don’t come in my size. Boo I love them.

Missy Moo looks gorgeous with her pigtails and her lovely Spring coat- so beautiful and happy! x
Thanks Hun I love her coat. I wish it came in my size. Hahaha matches her wellies perfectly. She looks too old with her pigtails I can’t believe it.
Oh Jenny, I love reading how they are growing up. These posts are so precious and one day you will all read them back and feel such delight. Gorgeous beach photos too lovely xx
Oh Kiran thank you so much. I hope so. I want to put them all in a book at the end of each year.

I bet it was so lovely to spend some time with your brother, it must be hard having everyone so far away. Lovely photos, Missy Moo looks adorable with her florals and pigtails and Buba looks like he’s getting so tall! x
Yes B is very very tall lately and MM is trying to keep up with him too on height. Oh I had a blast with my brother. Thanks.
Such happy happy photo’s. I actually thought to myself how much he looks like your brother. You can see it on your IG pictures. Gorgeous little MM who is really growing up! x #LivingArrows
Yes I think so too so very much. Like twins. His daughter looks like me too. So funny. Thanks hun

Nice that family is important to you, that you enjoy sharing time with family members. Remembering close family bonds, sharing happy memories etc can be so supportive when raising children etc.
Thank you hunny. It’s definitely the fountain of life isn’t it? Makes it fuller and more happier to experience life with family and extended family too.
