Tyler Lee & Beau | Siblings {June 2016} ♥

My two beautiful boys have been siblings now for almost one whole month. Time has gone by in a whirlwind and it's been amazing watching their relationship grow over this short but wonderful time. The moment they met is one I'll always remember - luckily we were able to capture it on film too.

I'll never forget Tyler Lee's rather nervous and unsure little face appearing at my hospital bed, both looking forward to and hesitating to meet his baby brother for the first time. He knew about baby Beau from the moment we did, he showed affection towards my bump and even gave Beau his name (always referred to as 'baby Beau' by his big brother) and all of those special moments had led to this meeting. I was delighted when Tyler Lee said - "Hello baby Beau", in a quiet voice and lent in to kiss Beau on the forehead. He also brought one of his old comforters as a gift to Beau, the Guess How Much I Love You nutbrown was very appropriate for this overwhelming loving moment. Their first meeting will always have a special place in my heart.

For about a week after Beau and I came home from hospital Tyler Lee still showed affection towards his baby brother but it was obvious that he was quite upset that he now had to share his mummy and daddy with someone else and there were a few tantrums and tears.

Thankfully that has all passed now and even though he still has lots of threenager moments (the terrible twos are nothing compared to this!), it's clear that he does think a lot of his brother, I think he's a bit unsure of what to do with him though as he's still so small and Tyler Lee is so boisterous and active.

I love seeing the two of them together, always lying down as Tyler Lee is unsure about holding Beau - I'm quite glad of this really as I could see him just abandoning him at any given moment! They interact together so well already, with Beau always turning his head to the sound of Tyler Lee's voice, staring in awe at the outline of his curls and giving little smiley looks at his big brother. Tyler Lee gets very excited and says - "I love you!" to his baby brother, it's adorable. I have little videos of them together on my Instagram which you can see on @fiandtylerlee. A lovely lady on my Instagram commented on one of the videos stating that - "she loves how Beau looks at Tyler Lee as if he hung the moon" and I loved that phrase. It's so true too.

I'm looking forward to seeing the boys relationship grow and develop over the coming years. I really hope that they become best friends and the fact that Tyler Lee already calls Beau his best friend is a positive sign to say the least. I can envision a lot of rough and tumble between the two of them in the coming years but also a lot of heartwarming, loving moments too.

This is my first month linking up to Dear Beautiful's Siblings Project and I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful it is to be able to finally do this after reading and seeing everyone's beautiful posts and pictures over the years.
