Athena & Arlo – December 2017

It’s been a huge fail on the ‘get a nice set of siblings photos’ this month, so this is a collection of photos from our weekend away last week and two are phone photos so awful quality! Anyway, these two are still close as ever, welcoming each other after school with hugs and sometimes if Arlo is in the buggy…

Athena & Arlo – November 2017

The dynamic between these two hasn’t changed a lot in the past month if I’m honest, they’re still thick as thieves. From first thing in the morning when they arrive in our bedroom clutching their blankets and a variety of cuddly toys to last thing at night when Athena signs a lullaby to Arlo. It goes like this: Arlo Barlow,…

Athena & Arlo in October 

Isn’t it odd that only a few days away from your kids can highlight just how fast they grow and change? After just under a week away Athena seemed taller and more confident (though hard to believe she could get any more confident) and Arlo was chatting more and called me Lauren instead of Mummy! They’re still as thick as…

Athena & Arlo – September 2017

This months picture had to be a starting school one really! Plus with the whole starting school thing we’ve not really been anywhere too exciting to take more thrilling photos! This was Athena’s ‘first day’ photo, with Arlo alongside her. In all honesty not a lot has changed between these two over the past month, they’re still thick as thieves…

Athena & Arlo – August 2017

Arlo loves Athena. She is more or less the only person he will listen to, often I have to get her to ask him to do something to get it to happen. They’re mostly the best of friends with a few little tiffs here and there, which are easily forgotten. He really looks up to her, idolises her even! But…

Athena & Arlo- July 17

Fighting like cats and dogs pretty much describes these two at the moment. Not all the time, but a lot of it. There has even been a bit of blood drawn, though I think that was an accident. The latest thing seems to be arguments over who is sat on me, or closest to me. Neither of them will show…

Athena & Arlo – June 2017

Joined at the hip is more or less the only way to describe these two this month. There are tears from Arlo if Athena heads into the bathroom and closes the door, which she only does because we’re trying to teach her about privacy, not necessarily within her family but as a general rule – She’d quite happily have him…

Athena & Arlo – May 2017

A couple of weeks before we went away for a week Sam slaved over building a bunk bed for these two, and they spent two nights in their room together before we went away. I was expecting tears and to be sitting in the dark waiting for Arlo to drop off to sleep as I had done when he was…
