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 that Arlo can sit unaided, and thankfully he’s happy to have her tip water over his head and try to wash him! She’s also been ‘helpful’ with the weaning process…

Athena & Arlo in September

Some sibling love on the London Eye Sibling interaction this month mainly consists of the following: Random forehead kisses from Athena to Arlo Lots of hair grabbing from Arlo much to Athena’s annoyance Athena replacing her toys (hastily snatched from his little hands) with something of Arlo’s Athena asking for Arlo when she wakes up, and once even asking for him to sit on her pillow one morning (she normally hates anyone being in her bed!) Athena pushing Arlo in the buggy (under supervision and not near roads, of course)…

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 the living room over whatever it is she’s trying to play with which can cause frustration for her! She’s stopped trying to ‘help’ him roll now that he’s mastered it…

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 is quite sweet but means I have to keep a very close eye on them when food is around! When i’m feeding him and she’s sat with us on the…

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 him, and more than once I’ve had to physically pull her off him as she likes to smother him by rolling on top of him to give him a hug!…

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 was up in his face shouting his name!

Athena & Arlo: April 2015

Arlo arrived in March 31st, and Athena didn’t meet him until the next day, which was April 1st. This photo was taken within 10 minutes of them meeting, it was snapped on my phone but to me it is perfection… the complete acceptance from Athena of this tiny little being that for months she had been resting her head on when he was still just a bump. And because I want to remember this lovely stage forever I can’t resist cheating with a second photo, my tiny little shrimp and…
