Siblings in September

We are half way through the month of September. The last two weeks I have definitely noticed a climate change and the short sleeved tops are going further and further back in my wardrobe. I have done a bit of shopping lately for the kids for some more long sleeve tops. Two days ago I even had to get out the winter coats. It is getting a bit chilly in the morning.

Siblings in March

Here we are, half of March has gone in a blur. It only feels like yesterday we have ticked off February. March is really flying by I have to say and we have so many fun times ahead of us. ¬†The middle of the month means it’s time for the Siblings project again. A project where I reflect on brother and sister to see how they get on together each month. It is one of my favourite photo projects I like linking up to with many other bloggers out there.

Siblings in February

Another month has passed and it’s time again to see how brother and sister have been getting on the last month.

The month of February started off with a celebration. It was Chloe’s second birthday. We had a small party for her at the weekend and had cousin’s over. The weather was on our side and they were playing outside half the time.

The last month was actually very quiet. We have been very lazy and neglected the outside walks a bit. It’s coming close to spring now which means, well I am hoping, the weather will pick up again and we can go and explore the local area. There are a few things on our list. First is probably to find an outdoor playground. We haven’t been to a playground in months.

Above photo was taken in the living room. Matthew wanted the tunnel out to watch some Transformers. He’s obsessed with super hero’s bit particularly Transformers. This is only the cartoon version of it but I think I might have you watched the actual Transformers movies with him. I’m sure he will love it. Chloe was crawling around him watching him, annoying him, crawling into the tube.

I thought this one was adorable. I can’t remember what they were watching at the time but it might have been Mickey Mouse. They had their snacks in a bowl which was grapes and both sat down on the sofa together with the cushion on their knees.

Chloe is copying everything Matthew is doing lately. Including the crying… we definitely need to work on Matthew’s behaviour. He doesn’t listen a lot of times and that applies to creche too. I want him to be the best boy when he enters big school in September. Chloe must be the tidiest girl in her room. She’s so good cleaning up after herself. As soon as she sees me coming to collect, she goes into tidying up mode and only then she wants to leave.

Siblings in January

It is the first link up of the year to the Siblings Project. I am so excited to be joining this year again and see brother and sister grow over the next year. This month mummy is turning the big 30. I know when hubby reads this he will have his say on my age. I don’t even feel like 30, neither do I feel like 20 or 25 and I certainly don’t look like 30. For my 30th I am heading to London. I absolutely love traveling and I would have traveled somewhere else but because it is the winter time right now, there is not much point going anywhere else in Europe in the freezing cold.

We have Christmas and New year’s behind us and for me it was back to reality the last two weeks. This meant the kids were back to creche. I would have thought that it is going to be an absolute nightmare to integrate them back into it after being off for two weeks but it was actually a walk in the park. They went in the first day after their holidays no problem. Chloe definitely enjoys creche I have to say. She has her little best friend Ava and they are like best buddies. Just by chance, the other day, I found out that she lives in the same estate as us only a few houses down the road. I don’t think her parents know that though. I’d say it’s time to be introduced.

Just before New Year’s we had Matthew and Chloe’s cousins over from Dublin and Germany. Ten kids in one house. Maniac. I wasn’t there at the time because I had to work but I saw all the photos hubby took. It looks like the kids had great fun especially ¬†Matthew. He always goes wild when they come over. Chloe is a bit more attached and doesn’t know what to make of all the people in her house.

Since the new year we have taken it slow and haven’t done anything mad yet. The kids enjoy having a sleep in at the weekend now. As both kids end up in our bed most nights, they started holding hands in their sleep. It is the cutest thing ever. Hubby told me about it a few days ago.

Last weekend we went on a nature trail. Chloe loved seeing all the different trees and animals like ducks, horses and swans. We are trying to do something as a family at least once at the weekend now. There is only so little time because we work during the week and it is nice to do something together as a family in my opinion. We’ve discovered a bowling alley and mini golf center nearby recently that we are going to try out in the next few weekends. I’d say Matthew is definitely going to enjoy that.
