Close Siblings

22/02/2015 21:25

Having 2 small children that are so close in age can be really difficult at times. They both demand so much of your attention and fight for it at the same time as the other. They both still need so much and it's impossible to give it to them both at the same time - all of the time. It's exhausting even trying to. We knew it would be difficult, but the challenge of having them so close together has definitely been more of an up hill battle than we perhaps anticipated. We had them close together for a reason though... we wanted them to grow together and hopefully have a close relationship. 

I get the feeling that we're not far away from something really special. I get the feeling that we're not far away from the dynamics changing quite dramatically. They're growing so fast. Take a look at these photos...

I get the feeling that they might just be fighting for eachothers attention a little bit more, and our attention a little bit less in the not so distant future. And that? Well that's what we were hoping for when we planned to have Alice so soon after Clayton had graced us with his presence. I'm hoping that photos like these are just a small window into what the future is going to hold for our little duo.

age gaps are an interesting one aren't they. I think you just make whatever gab you have work, they look so close

My girls are 2 years apart. They're 7 and 9 now and they argue and fight most of the time.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that as they grow older they'll also grow closer to each other!

Mine are close together too and all get on so well. It's a lovely relationship - not always of course, but fundamentally they are really close. Lovely photos.

I am sure the children will grow up to be close.Judging from the pictures they really are enjoying each others company.

My sister and I have less than two years age difference and we were always each other's best friends and worse enemies. I would have wanted to have two children close like that of my own but sadly it wasn't possible. The best sibling relationship ever for your two wonderful little ones :)

It looks like they're very close and I'm sure that as they grow they'll have a great relationship.

I'm sure they will grow to be close, I sometimes wish I hadn't left 4 years between my two
