Living Arrows

Living Arrows is a weekly linky celebrating childhood. The project originally took its name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and every Monday we share a moment from our week and invite others to do the same as part of this linky. Here are all the posts so far in the series.

Living Arrows – 10/52

This week’s Living Arrows are moments that made me smile. LP has started finding places to sit in the lounge and she’ll sit however she feels like at the time. Sideways on a chair, reading a book and watching TV. My mini-me, the multitasker. Concentrating, TV-watching face and her just-got-up-from-a-nap hair, loose and natural. My perfect Pickle. Little Man, constantly pulling himself up on the furniture. Always learning something new…

Living Arrows – 9/52

Our Living Arrows photos this week were taken on one of the nicest days we’ve had for a while – Our first proper day in the garden! The weather was nothing short of glorious, the children were happy and the day was easy! It’s amazing what a bit of sunshine can do! Little Man was put in the playpen for the first time, in the garden, complete with play tent…


Living Arrows – 8/52

This week has been another poorly week here. A week of runny noses, grumpiness, teething and mostly lazy days. This week has had a lot of PJ days and relaxing time. LP likes to lay in our bed and watch TV whilst I’m getting ready. Sometimes Little Man likes to join her. Occasionally the cats join them too, and all four ‘babies’ relax in bed watching TV. A snotty week…


Living Arrows – 7/52

I’m really loving joining in with Living Arrows each week and finding the best photos from the week to capture both children’s personalities and the week they’ve had. LP has had another week of mostly being my Beautiful Mess. Scruffy hair and house clothes, playing, reading, napping and watching TV. Every so often during the day I will hear from behind me or across the room ‘Picture Mummy, take a…


Living Arrows – 6/52

This week’s Living Arrows photos sum up our week. Little Man has been on a non-stop adventure of exploring every possible space in the house. Rolling, crawling, moving. He’s also been constantly blowing raspberries and sticking his tongue out. Little Man’s personality is developing every single day and he is getting more and more cheeky as the weeks go on. Such a happy, cheeky, gorgeous little thing! Little Pickle has…


Living Arrows – 5/52

This week’s photos sum up our week. Little Pickle has generally looked a mess. Getting over a virus, snotty and tired looking with hair everywhere. A mess. A beautiful mess. Little Man has found the world this week. He wants to be everywhere, explore everything and do as much as he possibly can. It’s a joy to watch and something we are embracing. Little Man is growing so fast, learning…


Living Arrows – 4/52

My Living Arrows photos this week sum up for me how grown up both my ‘babies’ are looking. Little Man is nearly 9 months old and is such a little dude! A proper little person. LP is not quite 2 and a half and is so beautiful, talks so much and has such serious, quizzical faces sometimes. My ‘babies’ will always be my babies, but they really aren’t babies anymore…
