Brothers | July 2015

This month I'm finally able to join in with a blog link-up that I've been really fond of for a long while now - Siblings. It was created by Lucy from Dear Beautiful, who also created the Me and Mine blog link-up - my very favourite blog link-up and one that I co-host. Even before I was pregnant with Logan, I'd get so excited reading fellow bloggers siblings posts, there's something very special about the bond that siblings seem to share and I love the idea of dedicating a blog post on the same day every month to capture and document how those bonds change, grow and develop, as well as having the opportunity to share captured moments and memories of them through photographs.


I now have two little boys (though that still seems a little surreal to say) and seeing them together brings forward an emotion in me that is sort of hard to explain. It's a mixture of proudness, love, utter joy and of thankfulness. I feel like when the time comes that they begin to play together, I won't be able to take my eyes off of them and that my heart will just burst of complete pride and sheer happiness. 

Ethan is already a wonderful big brother to Logan. Sure, he may not fully understand, with Logan only being two weeks old, that he is here to stay, just yet. But a big part of me does think he knows that Logan's here forever and that he does know that he is his little brother. Ethan already displays a caring protectiveness over Logan. We catch him watching over him, particuarly when he's in his moses basket. He'll alert us to him when Logan begins to grizzle or to cry. He'll pick up Logans dummy and carefully place it back in his mouth when it falls out - though he hasn't yet mastered the whole not touching the teat business just yet. ;) He's interested in Logan and likes to watch how his Dad and I interact with him. He'll wave his little brother goodnight when he goes up to bed and he loves to give him kisses. Ethan genuinely is such a lovely little boy, with a heart of gold. He loves other people, especially other children. He doesn't mind sharing his toys or even his food (which is saying something) and I just know that whilst he seems to really care and love his little brother at the moment, he will grow to adore him as he gets older and as their bond begins to grow.

    1. Thanks Janine. I think it'll be so lovely as Logan gets older and Ethan shows more and more interest. It's far more interesting to them when their younger siblings can do more than just lay there ;) xx

  8. These are such gorgeous photos Alex, ones to treasure forever. You can just tell from the photos how sweet natured and gentle Ethan is with Logan. Can't wait for Freddie to be able to have a similar bond with his new bro or sister xx
