“A new baby is like the beginning of all things: wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities” – Eda J. Le Shan

8 weeks old - brothers* 4B

11 weeks ago E bounced ‘bum to bum’ with his brother for the last time before I went into hospital to be induced.  Two days later beautiful baby Luca arrived weighing 9lb 1oz. We’re all besotted with our gorgeous, sweet natured boy and can barely remember life without Luca.

He’s 10 weeks old now but E has loved him with a passion since we first told him we were pregnant. Some said that would change when the novelty of having to share Mummy and Daddy wore off, that jealousy would inevitably set in, that the baby was sure to get bopped on the head eventually! These pictures tell a different story; one of unconditional love and devotion and the beginnings of a beautiful sibling friendship.

I’m so proud of how our beautiful, kind hearted, forthright 4 year old has risen to the challenge of being a big brother. What a lucky boy Luca is.

ps. for anyone thinking how like E Luca is – you’re right! Check out E’s birth announcement here

    Lovely bunch of pictures Nic. You and George will one day realise, like us, that being a parent is the best job you’ll ever have, even being a job for life.

      completely agree (especially the bit about always being a parent, you’re a very fine example of that with all the love and help you provide :o)

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Beach buddies #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #bestfriendbrothers #nipitinthebudblog
Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
