Brothers | May 2016


We're at a funny age with the boys. It's an age where they are quite clearly really interested in each other but also an age where they don't quite know how to be best friends. One minute they can be laughing at each other hysterically and encouraging each other and the next it's almost like they've had a little scrap - this is usually when sharing of the toys comes in. 

Logan's increasingly getting a bit tired of his baby toys - he's far more interested in what his brother is doing. If Ethan has a plane - Logan wants it. If Ethan's reading a magazine - Logan wants that too. Logan at ten months and like most ten month olds basically wants everything he's not really supposed to have. 



And it's a good thing that Logan is so interested in what his brother is up to, when Logan's a little older perhaps they'll share interests and play planes together, but right now Ethan doesn't find having his planes chewed on by his little brother a lot of fun. Though he is generally quite patient and accepting of his brothers intrigue and desire to put everything in his mouth. 

Learning to share is all part of having a sibling and we're right at the start of the boys journey together. Rather than Ethan get upset and shout about Logan trying to take his things, we're encouraging Ethan to tell us so that we can show him that he should perhaps go and get Logan another toy to play with. 


The boys are reminding me of each other so much and I'm loving seeing them both grow each month. Logan is turning into more of a little boy each day and Ethan like his brother is just totally a heart-melter, he's also far more grown up than I realise sometimes. 


This month has been ultra busy for us, we've not had as much family time as we normally would have, due to our house renovations, but one of my favourite moments from this month has to be when we showed the boys the new flooring in the bedrooms. The room that is going to be our office was empty and they were sliding across the new laminate floor together, laughing and going pretty crazy before bath time. We've also had some time in the garden this month with the warmer weather, which is when I took these photos of them. It's not easy getting them to sit together to be honest, they're independent little boys, but I managed to get a few which I feel perfectly reflect their personalities. 


Looking at them together always makes my heart melt. I don't know if I'll ever stop wondering how they can both be mine.

  1. Absolutely gorgeous boys. They will grow to be little stunners. I'm sure in time they will share interests and toys but getting through this stage where Login wants everything Ethan has is all part of the fun of growing up and learning the world around them. X

    1. I know! I'm shocked myself at how much Logan has grown up lately, he looks almost like a little boy now rather than a baby! x

  3. Gorgeous boys! The sharing thing is so hard for a little one to understand. It's good though that he has a brother so will be used to sharing from a young age rather than having to learn it later on xx

  7. The putting everything in the mouth stage is tough, Holly is 20 months and just out of it about a month ago! They look so cute together and they will find their way to be brothers and you have the joy of watching it X

  9. Oh they are just absolutely beautiful boys Alex, I can't get over how grown up Logan looks! It's crazy, they seem a lot closer together in age looking at these photos. And their eye colour is just gorgeous. xx

  10. When did they both get so big?! These are gorgeous pictures Alex, of two adorable little boys who I swear are growing inches by the minute! I chuckled at your technique for swapping out Ethan's toys - we had a rule for Pip too that if the girls wanted to take something off him they had to offer him a replacement first - it worked most of the time until he realised it was all a ruse!!
