sisters | February 2015Since I wrote the last Sisters post in October, there have been a couple of interesting twists to their relationship:

1) Imogen is on the move now and Seren has found it hard to adjust to Imogen grabbing at her toys and wanting to sit or stand next to her (“she is in MY place!”).

2) When we’ve got baby toys out for Imogen to play with they’ve been commandeered by big sis who suddenly shows an interest in a baby walker. So Imogen is getting early ‘lessons’ in turn taking and sharing. I do feel sorry for her when she is happily playing with something and gets it snatched off of her and foresee years of refereeing ahead.

3) A friend commented that the sisters’ relationship has been enhanced now that Imogen can sit up, and when they are in the right mood they can sit and play together very well. This is especially true at bath time as Imogen can sit unaided now and they love to splash about together.

4) Seren LOVES to push Imogen in the swing. Imogen is not sure about this however.

5) ‘She did it!’. So, when Seren undid her seatbelt on the motorway this week and I had to come off the motorway to find somewhere safe to pull over and get out to strap her back in,  Seren was adamant that Imogen had undone the seatbelt. Which, if you aren’t au fait with the constraints of a baby carseat and the strength and agility of a 9 month old, is physically impossible! I’m not sure what I was more cross about, the seatbelt undoing or the fib…

On the whole, they do still adore each other and we have had lots of cute moments. The smiles they give to each other are still heart melting.

    You have beautiful girls 🙂 I have a 22 month age gap between my two girls and I am frequently playing referee. Though I am glad the youngest doesn’t take any messing from her big sister and will stick up for herself even at 18 months old xx #siblings

      Thank you! I am looking forward to Imogen being able to stick up for herself!

    Such lovely photos. It’s so hit and miss the sibling relationship at this age. It took my eldest awhile to adjust to our twins being on the move, I dread to think what will happen when they are all walking! She still looks so proud of her little sister 🙂

      Gosh and when they walk (run) in different directions – that will be interesting! Thank you – she adores her most of the time 🙂
