Living Arrows – 8/52 {2017}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows. I am loving how many people have decided to make Living Arrows a part of their blogging routine for 2017, it is so lovely to have you all here. It’s definitely one of my favourite parts of each week!

If you haven’t joined in with Living Arrows before it’s 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!

Here are a few of my favourite photos from last week:

Dear Bear and Beany

Late For Reality

Mummy Alarm

This week’s photos were taken at home over the last few days. We had a PJ day on Sunday and the children loved just relaxing whilst I started to try and sort out the house a little bit more – it’s all slowly coming together. Both LP and Little Man has haircuts on Friday and I think Little Man looks really little again – and I love this expression on his face.

At the hairdresser, after giving LP a trim, they always plait her hair and do styles that I can never do at home. This time LP loved her little princess plaits. This photo was taken whilst she used some new smelly stationery – and she loved trying to guess what each pen would smell like.

I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week. If I thought a lot of people joined in for the first week then I was amazed at the amount that joined last week! I’m going to keep commenting on all of the posts that link up and sharing my favourite photos each week. Thanks so much for taking part and for adding to this great little community we’re creating – make sure to go and comment on a few other posts at some point during the week too.

    Oh I bet she loves getting her hair styled at the salon!

    Thank you for featuring my photo of Alice. I love LPs princess plaits, I think Alice would too. Little Man looks so sweet in this photo. X

    I can see why you love little man’s expression – it has a little hint of cheeky! Lp looks so lovely with her little plaits. Thanks for hosting again x

    They both look lovely with their new hair. LP’s plaits are just fab. I never had those kind when I was younger x

    Sometimes a PJ day is just what the doctor ordered!

    I remember scented gel pens, mmm popcorn was lovely!
    What a cheeky looking face 🙂 Princess plaits sound very pretty, hope she enjoyed having her hair done x

    LP’s hair definitely looks princessy – it’s a gorgeous colour too. It’s funny how when they’ve had their hair cut, they can look older or younger depending on how it was before.

    Great photo choices this week. I always have trouble to take my son to the hairdresser. He loves his curls too much and hates having his hair cut. LP’s braids look great. i wish i could do that on my daughter’s hair! Thanks for hosting x

    How pretty does her hair look? J has only had her hair cut once but asked for a fishtail plait (!) which the hubster has since learned how to do x

    Love LP’s princess hair! My stylist actually does the same for me after I get my hair cut and I love having fancy hair for a day. Little Man looks adorable, as always!

  11. February 20, 2017 / 8:25 pm

    I feel like Little Man is totally working the camera! He is so gorgeous!!! and I love his hair. I am so glad you picked that photo from Late For Reality…SO cute!!!!! Thank you for hosting, as always x

    How lovely of the hairdressers to do that, I’m useless with hair so Daisy either has a pony tail or a normal plait. Little man looks so cute with his new haircut.

  13. February 20, 2017 / 9:47 pm

    Her plaits are just fab. I’m dreadful at doing my girls hair, a basic plait is all I can manage! x

  14. February 21, 2017 / 10:26 am

    Aww that is so lovely. What a wonderful expression. My little dude is similar. That sweetness with a hint of cheekiness. And how gorgeous is your little one in her plaits. xx

    The princess plaits look fab! My mum was always useless with my hair (and I seem to have inherited that lack of talent) but I loved having it done in a french plait at the hairdressers or by my auntie. I’m taking Max for a haircut on Thursday and dreading it – although I’ve promised we’ll get an ice cream after if he’s good, so I’m looking forward to that part at least!

    I cant wait until Isla’s hair is long enough to plait, or put in pony tails! LP has such beautiful hair. And I agree, LM’s expression is lovely in this photo. #LivingArrows

    Your daughter’s hair is so beautiful, I’d never want to cut it! Your wee boy looks gorgeous with his! Thanks for hosting another week <4

  18. February 21, 2017 / 10:24 pm

    Ooh we’re off to the hairdressers tomorrow. My daughter’s hair seems to grow up and out rather than down. Still, she’s very excited about the outing. A PJ day would be amazing!

  19. February 22, 2017 / 3:45 pm

    How lovely that the hairdressers style her hair for her after a cut! I really want/need to learn how to ‘do’ hair now that Nerys’ is starting to get longer! x

  20. February 22, 2017 / 8:53 pm

    Loving your sweet braids LP and Little Man you are as cute as ever. Pj days are the best! Thanks for hosting Donna. It looks like more and more are getting involved in this wonderful project. I’m so glad to contribute every week and find inspiration in others photos.

  21. February 26, 2017 / 6:11 am

    Great photos! How lovely that LP always gets her hair styled at the hair dressers. It looks lovely! x

  22. February 26, 2017 / 10:13 pm

    I can only imagine the amount of work you have on with the kitchen changes! I use to love smelly stationary when I was young, I think we also use to be able to get smelly figurines as well! Yay to PJ days. Thanks for hosting #LivingArrows

    I love pictures where you just manage to capture a funny expression – LM looks very sweet with his new haircut. And that’s so cool that they plait LP’s hair too when she gets a trim – such a treat!
