Arthur and Freddie {November 2015}

I’m a couple of days late with this one, but here are my two little guys, Arthur and Freddie this month.

These pictures are from a random bed time that I decided to bring the camera in on.  Nothing particularly extraordinary about them but it does really show how these two are together all the time!!

There is still a whole lot of love going on with these two!  Arthur is still very into Freddie’s hands.  He loves holding hands with him.  We did however have our first ‘incident’ where Arthur bit Freddie’s hand, twice, in one day.  It was awful, my heart broke.  We were so worried that this was the start of things to come.  We put Arthur on the naughty step straight away both times, he’s not done it again or shown any inclination to do it again so fingers crossed we won’t get any more biting.  He has never been a biter anyway which I think made it all the more shocking for us.  I don’t know if it was an extension of his love of Freddie’s hands, a bit of jealousy or what, but it was no fun for anyone!!

Along with Freddie’s hands, Arthur also likes to point out his head, eyes, ears and toes!

This last picture makes me laugh so much!  Arthur can definitely ‘over love’ Freddie and this is another example of that!  Freddie wasn’t upset or anything after this, I think he is definitely going to be a resilient little guy!

Arthur and Freddie {October 2015}

So a month has passed already and it’s time for a little Arthur and Freddie siblings update!!

These two continue to be so gorgeous together!!

Arthur still just can not get enough of his baby brother, he wants to be touching him all the time. He is especially into holding Freddie’s hands it’s so sweet.

Freddie loves to watch his big brother. The thing is, is that Arthur wants to be so so close to him that he can get a bit overwhelmed sometimes. Poor Arthur doesn’t quite get that Freddie doesn’t really love being all squished when he cuddles him all the time!!  Arthur tries his hardest to be so gentle with him, he is such a softie.

Freddie is still very much my secret weapon to wake Arthur up, he doesn’t get grumpy at all if he is there and they have the loveliest of cuddles!

I am still really sure that Arthur and Freddie will be such buddies, especially if Arthur has anything to do with it. If Freddie isn’t in the room he is asking after him. If he hears him cry he goes to him. When Arthur comes into our bedroom he goes straight to Freddie and says “morning Freddie!” It couldn’t really be any cuter!!

Siblings {September 2015}

This is my first time joining in with the siblings link up. It’s one I’ve been really excited about joining in with since I first found out we were having Freddie!

So, as I have gushed about quite a lot already both on the blog and across social media, Arthur and Freddie are already best friends!

I had a lot of pregnancy guilt second time around and spent a lot of time worrying how Arthur would respond to having a baby brother. So far, it couldn’t have been any better. From their first hospital cuddles Arthur has absolutely adored Freddie.

Obviously, it’s sort of been one way traffic, however, I really feel like I see Freddie’s eyes light up when Arthur is around and I’m pretty sure Arthur will get the first smile!!

Arthur gives Freddie so much attention, I perhaps would like if he left him alone while he napped, but I’m sure Arthur will soon figure out that I’m free to play a lot more if Freddie stays asleep!!

Speaking of sleep, Freddie has actually become my secret weapon when it comes to waking Arthur up from his nap!  Arthur has always been grumpy getting up from his nap, but since I’ve been waking him up with Freddie its been all change.  Arthur is so happy to see his baby brother and gives a sleepy smile and then they have the loveliest cuddles.  It is ridiculously cute!!

I am already absolutely loving sitting back and enjoying watching their relationship develop! We couldn’t be more proud of the way Arthur has just absolutely embraced the role of big brother! There has been no jealousy or resentment at all. Long may this continue! I hope I can be just as “gushy” and proud next month!!
