HAPPY MEMORIES – the gallery

For 38-ish weeks we worried about how the arrival of another baby would impact on Big Sis. Like all new parents we’d doted on her from birth, and thought she was pretty much the most amazing thing we’d ever seen. 
Would the arrival of a sister just after her 2nd birthday been viewed as a friend, or a rival? Would she resent my divided attention? Would her sense of security take a battering?
Finally, in September 2010 we found out. None of the above. As you can see from the photo above, she adored ‘Bubba’ from Day One. And today, exactly one year on from her birth (Happy Birthday Lil Sis!) she still loves her to bits. 
Sure, there are moments when Big Sis gets annoyed with her – like when Lil Sis switches Peppa Pig off halfway through a particularly enthralling episode, or tries to snatch food off her plate, or screams so loud our eardrums actually rattle. 
There have been a few sneaky shoves and thumps along the way, and the concept of sharing hasn’t come entirely naturally, but for every whack, there’s been twice as many kisses and cuddles. 
It might not last forever, spesh when the teenage years loom, but it’s lovely while it does!


  1. Beautiful picture and beautifully written – thank you for sharing. So precious. x

  2. Lovely, it must be great to be a big sis (even when they drive you crazy!)

  3. Such a lovely photo. I was worried about my daughter becoming a big sister but it went much better than I thought. She gets annoyed at exactly the same things yours does.
    Happy birthday to your little one.

  4. That is one of the loveliest photos I have ever seen.

  5. Aww what a lovely memory and a truly gorgeous photo x
