Brotherly Love

I've touched on this briefly here about the age gap between my two monkeys. It's almost 11 years but at this moment in time that gap doesn't seem to matter
They are so loving towards each other and big J would do anything for his brother. I honestly thought that it would be a struggle to keep these two entertained but they both get on so well. Little J absolutely adores his big brother and just wants to play with him all the time. 
I love sitting watching them play together, it's just lovely. Big J is so patient and spends lots of time with little J. I knew big J would be a great big brother but I didn't expect him to spend so much of his free time making his little brother laugh so much.
After school big J will come home and will spend time with little J while I make tea, clean up etc. He doesn't need to be asked he just does it because he wants to. I often come into the living room and find them rolling round the floor laughing. It's hilarious.  The two of them are crazy.
Now big J is getting older its nice to see them both celebrating special occasions together, Easter, Christmas, birthdays and Halloween last year.

We've still managed to keep up our days out as we love spending time as a family and we are choosing places which are suitable for both of them. We have been to Alton Towers a few times and I love it how big J will spend lots of time with little J in Cbeebies land even though he loves all the big fast rides.

I know there will be times when big J won't be able to spend as much time with little J but that's okay, I understand. I know the love these two have for each other is so strong and they will be friends for life.

  3. Ah that is so lovely! My two would love a younger sibling...but that is not on the cards! Whenever they get a chance though they play with little kids. My 7 year old daughter is especially fond of little ones! Should I be worried??!! ;)

  4. My oldest two have a 10 yr age gap and for the first 5 years it was the perfect gap. Now they do nothing but fight, hopefully with both of yours being boys they will continue there lovely bond x

  6. That's gorgeous. When I was a child, I was always envious of friends who had siblings a lot older than them. Someone a bit like a parent AND a friend, all rolled into one - perfect!

  7. My daughter is 6 and is gets so distressed if we or family members mention the idea of another child, I always worry that we've left the age gap too late and she'll never be able to bond. It's heartening to see your two boys get on so well! It means there's hope for me!

  9. Some lovely pictures. It's really sweet how they get on.

    One of our set of nephews have a 7 year gap. Used to be fine, but now they're 12 and 5 it's harder between them sometimes.

  12. There is 13 years between me and my sister and I love her loads! She use to take me on great days out when she was old enough to take me places. I thought it was great fun. They look like they love each other very much.

  13. Awww these pictures are SO adorable! I think a lot of parents worry about an age gap between their children - what is THE perfect age gap? There's no such thing! #GoldenOldies

  14. What a lovely post, it's great to see how well they get on. My two are 5 and 2 and it amazes me how their relationship is developing, it makes a difference being much younger I think as my eldest was not that impressed until the little one became 'interesting' :)

  16. They look so cute together! My twins get on with eachother, but the one refuses to cuddle or kiss the other, whilst the other always wants to!

  17. Lovely photos. I don't think the age gap matters - I know siblings very close in age who don't get on and others with big, big gaps who are best of friends. Your two look like the adore each other. #goldenoldies
