Athena & Arlo in December

Since my last Siblings post things have been trundling along pretty much the same, apart from a few attempts by Athena to inflict pain on her brother. She’s still at the honest toddler stage, so when I ask if she was trying to hurt him she says yes, although I think it’s more an attention thing. Yesterday for example I…

Athena & Arlo in November

This past month has seen some lovely developments in the relationship between Athena & Arlo.   She is a lot more tolerant of him and I think this is because he’s a lot more active now so that she can play games with him (whether he’s aware he’s playing or not!) She spends a lot of time beckoning him to…

Athena & Arlo in October

This month has been a nice one for these Siblings. Arlo is getting a lot more involved in toys (well grabbing for them, anyway) and Athena has started to allow him to sit near her and watch what she’s doing without shouting at him when he grabs something to chew on it. Lots of shared baths have been had now…

Athena & Arlo – August 2015

This past four weeks have flown by, so it’s time for another Siblings post. Arlo is bigger and is starting to be a bit more interactive although still not quite to Athenas ideal! She can’t wait for him to be able to sit and play properly. At the moment he tends to just roll and roll across the width of…

Athena and Arlo – July 2015

This month Arlo has been getting more interactive, which Athena loves. He also smiles when he sees her, or if she deems it suitable to play with him for more than 30 seconds (that kid is always on the go) he’ll happily sit and beam at her from his swinging chair! She’s started to offer him her food too, which…

Athena and Arlo – June 2015

So this month the novelty of having a little brother has worn off ever so slightly, there have been a few ‘shushes’ when Arlo has been crying, but she still definitely loves having him around as he’s the first person she asks for when she wakes up in the morning! She still has to be reminded to be gentle around…

Athena & Arlo: May 2015

  This month Athena has continued to be loving and caring (if a little rough at times!) with her brother. She makes sure we know when he’s crying, and pats him on the chest or back when he coughs or sneezes! He also is starting to be aware of her, and his biggest grin to date has come when she…
