The Siblings Project | September


It’s September! Autumn is right around the corner and the kids are back at school. Things are very different here to how they’ve been for the past couple of months but that’s OK, it’s good to have a bit of routine back in our lives.

Back to school means that the kids are spending far less time together which to be honest isn’t such a bad thing. They were fighting more and more towards the end of the holidays so it’s good for them to have some time apart to miss each other a little. I’ve found that they are playing so much better together since they’ve been back at school.

As I’ve mentioned before, one of my favourite things is how excited Evie gets when it’s time to go and pick Max up from school, and she’s been even more excited than usual since he went back, it’s so cute! And on the days that Evie is at preschool Max will go and look for her at play time and give her a hug, bless him.

Evie has been very emotional about going back to preschool, I wrote about it here if you fancy a read. She’s moved up to a new building and I think she thought that meant she was going to school with Max and she’s been pretty much begging me to let her go with him. She really loves her big brother.

I took this months photos one evening before bed, in their matching Little Bird by Jools PJ’s. I’ve wanted to get them matching PJ’s for ages (yes, I am that mum!) and when these went in the sale, I had to snap them up! I think they look super cute in them.

I think these photos show perfectly what their relationship is like at the moment. You can see how much they love each other and that they’ve missed each other. They had both been at school all day when I took these photos and so they were getting on really well and playing so nicely together. It’s not always easy to get them to have their photo taken together but they were more than happy to on this occasion!

    Reading your post brought back memories for me, when Ashleigh used to look for her younger sister at playschool, then go up to her and give her a hug and a kiss…just so cute.
    Shame, I hope Evie settles in nicely soon. Evie and Max look adorable in their matching pj’s. You are a wonderful mom Emma. x

    Those PJs are adorable – I want some! I’m glad back to school has made them love each other even more, it must be lovely to see how much they’ve missed each other. #sharingthebloglove

    Ah gorgeous photos of them in their matching Pj’s. I love this time of year when the long sleeve pjs come out and they look so snuggly! That is so cute that they miss each other so much. Holly is really missing Alice now she is at school. x #TheSiblingsProject

    Aww gorgeous photos and those PJ’s are so cute! I was surprised how well my boys have adjusted to being back at school and their new classes. They definitely seem to get on better when they have some time apart. #PicknMix

    So gorgeous! We love little bird pyjamas here, I love that they can all wear the same with them being unisex. My favourite part of the day is school pick up time where Eva, Meggy and Harry rush towards eachother and snuggle up before holding hands the whole way home ready to do the same when Lewis walks in the door! #picknmix

    I love Little Bird and they are just so cute in their matching PJ’s! I think the summer holiday is such a long time for siblings – I know my sister and I would always be arguing by the end of it and we normally got on so well. How cute that Max looks for Evie in the playground for a hug too, I love that! THanks so much for joining us again at #SharingtheBlogLove

    I love their PJ’s. They are both very cute. It is lovely watching a sibling bond grow.

    aww they are adorable aren’t they. my boy moved rooms at nursery and found the transition tough at first. I can imagine it is even harder when they have a sibling they know is nearby too. #picknmix

    I LOVE the matching Pjs, so cute. My two either loved each other or hated each other during the holidays, it’s a long time to be together I sopose and I remember it being the same with me and my sister growing up. Thanks for linking to #PickNMix

    They are both so cute! My boys go through stages of being best friends or not being able to stand the sight of each other, lucky mostly the first one 😉 Thanks for linking up to #PicknMix

    Oh I really like the matching pjs!! Will have to give that a go with my two. Really like the idea of a sibling project once a month too. Will have to look into joining in! Popping by from #picknmix
