I thought it was time for another sisters post to celebrate a year of the girls being sisters (yep Imogen turns 1 on Friday, how quickly has that time gone!). Interestingly, I was chatting to Seren about when I was pregnant with Imogen the other day and it turns out she doesn’t remember it. I quickly grilled her on what else she did / didn’t remember and she does remember last Christmas and going to Peppa Pig World so that is OK.
So, as far as Seren’s concerned Imogen has always been in her life. Sweet. It’s a huge parental cliche but I get so much joy from watching their relationship develop. Imogen adores her big sis, she bounces up and down and says her name, “yeahyen”, when she sees her. Seren is enjoying Imogen being more of a playmate and came out of her room this morning with some In The Night Garden toys as she knew Imogen would like them.
Of course, it’s not all cuddles and happy playing. Imogen is going through a hair pulling stage and enjoys kicking Seren when they’re in the buggy / on the buggy board (I try not to laugh). Seren gets cross when Imogen grabs at her toys. We now have a rule that if Seren gets something out to play with then Imogen is around then she must be prepared to share the toys. Sometimes that leads to Seren saying that she wants to play on her own in her bedroom for a while, which is fine too.
