Flashback Friday...Ella and Freddy

This week's Flashback Friday post is dedicated to the relationship between Ella and Freddy.  Freddy adores all his siblings but I found this particular photo yesterday that I wanted to use as my Flashback Friday picture.  It is of Ella with her newborn brother back in July 2009.  She was 13 at the time and I wasn't sure how the relationship between a teenager and a newborn would work out.  I needn't have been worried though.  Straight away I could tell that she was going to be an amazing big sister. She adored him and has continued to do so.

July 2009
Now he is a boisterous toddler and she still can't get enough of her brother, even though he gets into her stuff in her bedroom!  She constantly takes photos of him and posts them to Facebook.  They play together and laugh so much.  She looks after him and is a massive help to me.  I'm so glad they have each other...and the rest of their siblings, to have these relationships with, enriching their lives and bringing such love and fun to our family.

*I could have made this post about any brother/sister combo in our family...but I just loved these photos and the story they tell!!


  1. I do love my Freddy. He's a little ray of sunshine and the best little brother I could ever have wished for. I love him so so so so so much...I can't even begin to explain it.

  2. Gorgeous - both of them! It's so lovely to hear of happy sibling stories and I loved this one

  3. Wendy, that is just lovely! I love the first photo in black and white. You can see the love on her face...just precious. You are so blessed to have them all! ;)


  4. That's amazing - he is so lucky to have a big sister who can properly look after him. I'm sure some teenagers wouldn't have the time for a toddler brother. Sounds like a wonderful relationship

  5. I just love that black and White photo - she looks so proud and full of love for her baby brother. She almost looks like she could be his mum. how wonderful that they have such a close relationship. Awww it's a lovely flashback post x

  6. Such a gorgeous post! Love that first photo especially as her face says it all. You can tell how much she loves him x

  7. Gorgeous photos Wendy. You have such great kids, they are a credit to you

  8. Gorgeous photos, and what a great relationship they portray.
