Eeek! I've wanted to join in with this project ( set up by the lovely Lucy incase you didn't know ) for so long. Ever since I started yearning for another child about two years ago I started imagining seeing my children together.
So far Wilf has taken to his role as big brother very well, every morning and evening he kisses & cuddles his sister good night and good morning and I often wake to him leaning over us stroking her hair. He whispers ' you are so lovely' to her and when she cries he says 'it's because she misses me' ha!
He even wants to get involved with changing her nappy, ceremonially passing me cotton wool and clean vests and he especially loves finding her a dummy to settle her. Obviously I only have experience of a four year age gap but I find myself wondering how I would have coped with a smaller gap. I'm grateful that Wilf is able to play by himself, use the toilet and lets be honest have the attention span for watching a film in the afternoons (essential at the moment!). I also appreciate that I have Tom home too which is definitely a great help!
I can't wait to see how their relationship develops & look forward to photographing them each month. Don't forget to check out the linky & join in if you fancy it!
