"A photo of my daughters once a week, every week in 2016"

Lottie: Traffic School. Girl, judging from today - when your time comes, you're getting a bus pass.
Róisín: 10 months old and already you've taken off on your first steps, a girl on a mission.

Lottie: Showstopper. You're destined for dramatic things girl :)
Róisín: Koala baby, you have just started sleeping through the night! 10 months in you took your first step yesterday and for a week straight you've got a solid 12 hours nightly sleep - 
you've got this whole life thing down pat now, snack, cuddle, snooze, repeat!

The Siblings Project: July

Lottie and Róisín
(4 years / 10 months)

You girls love each other, I mean I always knew you would - but one of you lacks the ability to talk and you still crack each other up and give each other knowing glances. Any day when you are out of the house, Lottie, upon return you run to her and tell her how much you missed her and then whisper little secrets in her ear that make you both giggle. I can see you girls in 5 years, 10 years, 20 years time and imagine it very much like this, inside secrets, your own little sister bubble, thick as thieves and nothing could have prepared me for how happy that makes me feel. 
We all cuddle up in bed together on these cold winter nights and every night when your dad gets home we look over at you two and you're wrapped safely in each others arms, sleeping away, content as can be. May you always bring each other this much happiness, you giggly, curly haired babes.

Knot Bow Romper

 Last week I had the pleasure of being one of the testers for the Coral and Co. Knot Bow Romper. Lottie and I headed over to our favorite Melbourne fabric store, perused the knit section and, as always with this wonderful shop the perfect fabric was tucked under and between a few bolts and when it emerged we both agreed on something (- for the first time this month)! Fournagers - however will I cope when the real thing comes along?! This pattern was simple and easily laid out and stitched up in no time. Other testers claimed 30 minutes, Ive been solo parenting this week so if I stitched my real-time sewing all together - albeit it was in about 30 second increments - Id say it would add up to roughly the same. If you will be making this and you have kids younger than school age at home I would give yourself 24 hours ;) 
This romper is perfect for summer and one of my favorite types of outfits for little ones- an all in one, it covers all the bases of an ensemble with one swoop move and getting dressed is sorted! Its a bit chilly in Australia for this at the moment but luckily for us were getting 2 summers this year - off to America in 6 short weeks! - so this romper will get a lot of love these upcoming seasons! And best of all - it's free! Get yours (in sizes 2-8) here

Róisín: Always testing gravity. Any time you make it up high you must drop things and watch them fall, you head to every edge making me a nervous wreck and when you are asleep in our bed at night you creep to the edges making me sleep with one eye open. Under your sweetness a daredevil lies. 

Lottie: Wild one, you are your sisters protector. Laughing as she tests fate and you are there to save her. May that always be the case.
