Athena & Arlo – July 2016

siblings july

Athena either shows a lot of care and love for Arlo, or completely blanks him out when he’s having a hissy fit. Generally when we’re in public if he is crying or upset she will try and distract him, offer him her toy/some food or play peekaboo with him. Other times he’s be screaming his head off and she’ll say ‘Arlo is very red’ and get on with what she’s doing. She shows immense patience with him (and me!) though which I am forever grateful for. They’ve sadly not really been playing together all that much recently, which hopefully will change again soon as Arlo becomes less intent on being destructive with whatever Athena is playing with! 



We went to see two shows as part of Starboard Festival this past week and it was lovely to see them sat together engrossed, and then Arlo following Athena around when she got up to join in! Now if He could only follow her lead when it comes to napping and sleeping I’ll be happy!

    Lovely photos, especially the first one! Awww 🙂 That’s great that she has patience with Arlo, Amelia is the same with Harry which is so nice to see. Hopefully they’ll have more of a chance to play together when Arlo is less destructive xx

    I love that photo of them on the tree together. That’s photo-frame worthy! I’m feeling the lack-of-sleep… Q barely naps through the day… still up every 3-4 hours through the night too. x
