I’ve just this moment decided to join in with The Siblings Project over on dearbeautifulboy.com, after seeing another couple of posts in the linky. It’s so important to me that I capture the relationship between Iris and Astrid as they grow.
With only an 18 month age gap, Iris is still a baby herself really. It’s only been 5 days since the beginning of her adventures as a big sister but so far she seems to be enjoying it. Today is the first day she’s seemed a little overwhelmed, as we’ve been out and about visiting lots of Trevor’s family. Generally she’s incredibly gentle and often plants tiny gentle little kisses on her. I’m having a little trouble with the first days of breastfeeding, and having Iris leaning on me to get a better look at her sister is making it so much harder, but I couldn’t ask her to stop. I don’t want to push her out, ever.
