My Captured Moment – Sleepy Snuggles

The other day, after Ella’s midday nap, I went and fetched her from her cot and took her downstairs to sit with Holly and I to let her wake up a little, as it often takes her a while to come round. She always loves a cuddle after a snooze and will normally still be half asleep and therefore too grumpy to want to go to anyone other than me.

But this day was different.

Holly spoke softly to her as she often does.

‘Hello, little one’ she said.

And with that, a heavy-eyed little two year old, slipped down slowly off of my lap, in favour of some sleepy snuggles with her beloved big sister.

I was so pleased I had my phone close to hand, as I was able to capture the two of them as they just gazed at one another.

Ella looking lazily up at Holly, comforted by her sisters affectionate embrace and Holly looking lovingly down at her adoring little sister.

It was such a precious moment for me, as their mummy to see my two beautiful little girls, both blissfully happy and content in each other’s company.
