Living Arrows – 12/52

Welcome back to Living Arrows! If you haven’t joined in before, Living Arrows is about celebrating childhood. The project originally took it’s 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.

Each week I share two pictures from our week – one of each of our children – but you can share one or more pictures that capture a moment of childhood. The following week I’ll share my three favourite photos from the week before, linking back to the owner’s blogs.

So if you would like to link up, grab a badge and post around a photo of childhood from the previous week. I look forward to reading your posts and make sure you visit a few of the other posts that have linked up and leave a comment too!

Living Arrows

Here are some of my favourite photos from last week.

Now, my photos this week aren’t really the greatest – for various reasons but they’re photos all the same. LP’s photo is about the only one of her I actually took this week – the hazard of her now being at school and not having as much time to take photos. We went out on Saturday to a museum and had lunch in their restaurant afterwards. Whenever we eat out it strikes me how grown up LP is getting – as well as how well mannered and well behaved.

Little Man’s photo sadly shows his spotty face – a reaction to our current baby wipes – but it also shows his cheeky character. He’s an oddball who makes me smile and laugh every single day and he really is a joy to be around.

  1. Oh bless Little Man – he is still gorgeous though despite the rash, hope it goes very soon 🙂 I love the pics you’ve chosen – Em’s is so funny, he’s such a character! Thanks lovely lady x x

  2. Aw bless, sorry he’s had a reaction to the wipes, it makes me wonder what they put in them, they should be so gentle. My youngest is also a funny little oddball, I think having an older sibling gives them the confidence to be their own person.

  3. How awful that wipes did that to his face? The poor guy! Baby wipes are the best thing for getting my waterproof eyeliner off and I always think that means they can’t be particularly gentle! LP really does look so grown up. Lovely picture xx

  4. I know just what you mean about school! I’m very aware that it’s easier to take photos of Nerys than it is take any of Rhys. I have to make sure I keep the camera handy on weekends for him! x

  5. LP really is looking more grown up even with the little girl plaits (love the dog dress/top). It’s great when you can snap some of their personality through the odd things they do. Lovely shot of Little Man too.

    Thanks for hosting
