Siblings {January 2015}

January 10, 2015

There are days when I look at my children count my blessings that when they are older and I am gone they will have each other. There are other days when I’m not sure if there is any love at all between them, fight after fight, argument after argument. On the whole I am very lucky in that they will play nicely with each other, help each other when they need it and offer cuddles when the other is upset (usually because I have told them off for something or another).

Joining in with Siblings for the first time I am keen to try to link up each month to share the moments when I manage to capture Roo and Tigger together.

The past month has been a hive of activity for us as a family with days out, activities and of course Christmas…

Roo and Tigger have enjoyed a trip to Build-A-Bear Workshop

Siblings January 2015 - Build-A-Bear Workshop

With a to-do as long as my arm I decided to blow it off in favour of taking the children to one of the Kid’s Club film showings at our local cinema. After seeing The Book of Life we opted to walk home along the seafront, it was a little brisk but it was lovely to watch Roo holding Tigger’s hand so he wouldn’t blow away.

After completing our advent calendars and singing all the sleeps to Santa, Christmas Day finally arrived in the Polka Dot Family house. With present opening getting a little much for Tigger, Roo kindly tried to console him with a hug as they opened up their joint present Disney Infinity…

Siblings January 2015 - Christmas Day

Back to school didn’t go quite to plan with Roo’s school shut for an extra day due to a faulty boiler. Thankfully with Tigger only in pre-school for a half day on a Tuesday we opted to spend the afternoon in our local SEA LIFE Centre, looking at the fish, grabbing some lunch and burning off some energy in the play area. Just before we left I managed to get this snap of them both, which I really love…

    Aw these are really lovely photos and I love that they were holding hands so they didn’t blow away so cute! My little boy is 5 and my daughter is 7 months and he dotes on her at the moment but I know the time will soon come when all I will hear is bickering and im dreading it lol!

    I love the siblings linky, I must write one. Lovely photos – my kids are all going through an argumentative phase, might be tough getting one of them holding hands!!

  • Jen aka Muminthemadhouse January 10, 2015 at 9:22 pm

    How did I not realise that you had a new site. I can not believe how grown up they both look!

  • Emily January 11, 2015 at 11:45 am

    Awww such lovely photographs. I find it hard capturing photos of mine sometimes.

  • Hannah Staveley January 11, 2015 at 1:28 pm

    With my two its hit and miss they can play together but not for long its getting to me now need some new games to keep them clam.

  • Michelle January 11, 2015 at 1:52 pm

    So cute! I was an only child and always wanted a brother or sister πŸ™‚ xxx

  • Sylvia January 11, 2015 at 3:47 pm

    I was an only child for 18 years then happened my half-brother πŸ™‚ It’s funny sometimes when ppl think she actually my son πŸ™‚

  • nessjibberjabberuk January 11, 2015 at 5:55 pm

    My son is currently dressed in a Spiderman costume. Must be something about being that age!

  • Sonya Cisco January 11, 2015 at 7:00 pm

    Oh bless them, they look like such a close pair!

  • Donna January 11, 2015 at 10:44 pm

    Such gorgeous photos, they definitely look like they love eachother in them! x

  • Rachel January 12, 2015 at 11:27 am

  • Sammie Hodges January 12, 2015 at 12:42 pm

    I do love it when siblings get on! It seems to be 50/50 here! I hope that as they grow older they get along even more!

  • Rachael Jess January 12, 2015 at 1:12 pm

    Aw you’ve captured some lovely pictures of your little ones. Love the spider-man build a bear. Looks like the little ones have had some great times together over the holidays.

  • wendy January 12, 2015 at 1:40 pm

    Lovely photos. I have two boys, so they obviously both have a sibling to play with.
    Getting any pictures of them together is no mean feat as they have a very annoying habit of gurning and acting up for the cameras instead of posing nicely! πŸ™‚

  • Nayna Kanabar ( January 12, 2015 at 8:53 pm

    It sounds like you had a great time and its so nice to see your kids caring for each other.

  • Stephen January 13, 2015 at 1:31 pm

    The bravery of taking kids into build a bear, done it once with my younger sisters and never again…

  • Kara January 13, 2015 at 6:24 pm

    Looks like they had lots of fun and I love the pictures, they do look very close

  • Amber January 15, 2015 at 11:13 am

    What lovely shots! Thank you for sharing. I love that they are holding hands so as not to blow away.

  • Alexandra January 15, 2015 at 12:40 pm

    Sounds like you’ve had a great and busy month. Nice to just hang out sometimes having fun and blow off the todo list. I love all these captures #siblings

  • Anna January 15, 2015 at 2:01 pm

    Great photos – I love them both in their woolly hats!

  • The Reading Residence January 15, 2015 at 5:08 pm

    Lovely photos, all so happy and smiley. Nice to capture these moments, that seem ordinary, but are quite special when you look back x

  • Debbie January 15, 2015 at 8:02 pm

    Such beautiful photos- I especially like the one from the walk along the beach. Life can be so difficult when you can’t get them to see eye-to-eye but definitely having a sibling and the overriding love- it really does make it worthwhile.
    (And you will have to explain Disney Infinity to me at some point!).

  • Carie January 15, 2015 at 10:31 pm

    They’re all gorgeous photos but I love that last one especially – it sounds like you had a really great Christmas break – even extended by a day πŸ™‚

  • Katy {What Katy Said} January 16, 2015 at 9:46 am

    Oh why was he crying? That is just too cute if it was cos he got everything he wanted. Bless his cotton socks!!!

    • Polka Dot Boo January 16, 2015 at 6:05 pm

      He was feeling a little overwhelmed by it all

  • Lucy January 16, 2015 at 2:27 pm

    Awww, these are all such lovely photos, and they kind of tell the story of their relationship together in different situations. Just lovely.
    Welcome to the fun of Siblings, I think you’ll find it gets quite addictive. x

  • Fritha Strickland January 16, 2015 at 3:46 pm

    oh this is so cute, I love the siblings linky, it makes me want to have one for Wilf..almost! πŸ˜‰ x

  • Mummy of Two January 21, 2015 at 7:34 pm

    They all have their moments of loving each other then hating each other don’t they – mine are very much like that! It sounds like you have had lots of fun over the past few weeks and you have some lovely photos.
