Little Man is now 22 months old. He is old enough to be a play mate to Boo, and be blamed for any mischievous acts by Boo! He loves playing with his sister, copying everything that she does, and chasing around after her in the garden or when we’re out and about. Boo wakes up every single day and rushes in to our bedroom to see if Little Man’s up and awake, as she tells me she ‘can’t wait to see him every morning.’ If he’s up first, snuggling in our bed, his eyes light up as soon as he hears her bedroom door open and a huge smile spreads across his face.
They interact and understand each other more now, too. My favourite sibling moment over the past month (aside from many happy memories made while on our break to Bluestone) has to be when Boo scraped her knee out in the garden, was moaning as it had grazed and hurt, so Little Man toddled over to her and bent down to her knee and ‘kissed it better’. It was adorable, and she immediately smiled and went off playing again. They are there for each other, they instinctively know what the other needs and their happiness is seemingly interdependent.
They remain the best of friends, giggling and playing all day long, and I do hope it lasts…

That last shot of them together is just lovely! It’s so precious when your little ones get on, isn’t it? Always warms my heart!
Warms mine, too 🙂
You’ve taken some lovely photos there, I love the last one 🙂 I love to hear the kids giggling together, there’s no better sound xx
Yes, even if they are conspiring against me!

Love these photos! They remind me of my two when they were younger, it’s so lovely when they are old enough to play together more isn’t it? x
Oh yes, it makes such a difference. They laugh all day long!
How adorable, it reminds me of my little brother when we were young. He was the first person I wanted to see in the morning too!
I was always close to my little brother, too. Love seeing my two like it.
The last photo is so precious! 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Such a lovely collection of sibling moments from your two this month. They sound so much like mine, the best of friends. And what you said about their happiness being interdependent, so so familiar. I feel so lucky to have children who adore each other so much, it’s such a blessing isn’t it?
Absolutely. So lovely to have them get on so well and be the very best of friends.
Such a gorgeous post, so lovely to read about, and to see their fantastic relationship. Just lovely 🙂 xx
Thanks, Caroline x
I love the last one, they look so happy! x
Full of happiness and usually mischief!
Aww they’re all such gorgeous moments of togetherness! It’s the lovely thing about this age when they just start to play together and you start to see what it was you were hoping for truly come together!
Yes, they get closer as they get older. Lovely to see
Such sweet photos. It’s great when they can play and share together.
Love all these photos Jocelyn, you have captured such fun between them, especially the one of Boo running. It must be great now they are getting old enough to interact and get into mischief together xx
It is fab, and they’re always on the go, up to something!
Beautiful photos – they look so happy playing together and really enjoying each others company. Love that Little Man kissed Boo’s knee better too – what a very precious moment. 🙂
It was adorable x
They are so cute and look like they have so much fun together. Love these photos. Growing up so fast too! #siblingsjuly

What a gorgeous collection of photos. It sounds like they have an adorable relationship too; how great that already they are looking out for each other 🙂
It’s very sweet to see. Thanks 🙂
Awww such lovely photos! He sounds like a very caring little brother! Bless they are so lovely at that age 😉 x
He is, thank you 🙂
Gorgeous photos 🙂 it’s the best thing ever when you see them becoming best friends and playing together isn’t it 🙂
It really is. It can’t be beaten 🙂
Wonderful relationship! JJ said to me the other day “Mummy, when EJ’s a bit older, can we be twins?” Just too cute! X
Ah, so cute! Boo’s adamant she’ll marry Little Man when they grow up 🙂
Your two look about the same ages as mine. It can be hard sometimes can’t it but it is so lovely watching their relationship grow as they learn how to play together. Gorgeous photos.
Yes, it can be challenging, but it’s made a lot easier by the fact that they do get on so well together – phew!
Oh these two look like a proper little double act, dont they! Lovely post hun! x
They definitely are! Thanks x
Your photos are gorgeous and I cannot wait for this stage – I think once my Little Man starts walking they’ll be able to play together more. Your two look like they have a great bond already and as you say, they’re the best of friends. Long may it continue! x
Thank you. They are so close, just hope they remain so when Boo starts school in a few weeks x
