I have been in two minds about whether to share a siblings post this month. I feel though that I’d like to share some of the last photos of my two girls together and bring this particular series of our monthly siblings project to its end. Jessica and Sophie had such a beautiful bond. It breaks my heart that I will never get to see them playing together again; never hear them chatter to each other as they lose themselves in a world of imaginative play, never see them cuddle up together again.
We have so many happy memories of the two of them together during the four and a half years they were able to spend together on earth. Their sibling bond will never truly be broken. We will do our best to help keep Sophie’s memories of Jessica alive and when Peanut arrives, he or she will know what a wonderful big sister Jessica was too.
Here is a selection of photos from the last month that Jessica and Sophie were able to spend together. From snow in the middle of last month, to some happy moments from our last family holiday together, a last day out with Auntie Fizz and their beloved cousins Ebony and Erin and a snapshot of them sitting together on the sofa when Jessica arrived home from a hospital stay for the last time.
If I could sum up that beautiful bond between Jessica and Sophie in just one photo from the last four years though, it would be this one. Whenever I think of the two of them together, this is the picture that I will carry with me in my heart.
