So far, I am lucky that my two little girls have a very good relationship – Lilly absolutely loves her little sister and it is becoming clear the feeling is mutual – Isla always has a smile for Lilly and Lilly is more likely to get Isla giggling than any other person.

Jealously has never been a problem for Lilly – even when she has sometimes felt that she wasn’t getting all the attention she wanted, she has never taken that out on her sister.

So, when I saw that this week’s gallery theme was togetherness, my immediate thought was to publish one of the many pictures I have of my two girls cuddling together.

My greatest hope is that my girls will be best friends, forever. xx

One of my goals for 2011 is to get better at taking photographs. And so, to encourage me to do this, I’ve decided to take part in The Gallery whenever I can as a bit of inspiration for some interesting snaps.

We had lots of comments about her having “piano players fingers”. Maybe we’ve got used to them now but I think they look normal sized now… perhaps the rest of her feet and hands have just caught up!
