Living Arrows – 17/52
It’s grainy and by no means a perfect picture but I love it. I glanced up on our way home this week to check on the Bears and saw this. Reaching out and holding hands between the gap for the first time. My heart just melted.
She’s turned into my little shadow this week and it’s been lovely to get a look in. Plenty of cuddles and she’s been doing lots of things ‘like mummy’. Bringing her laptop into the office, getting knitting needles and wool. It really is the cutest thing. She does follow that up with the mother of all tantrums and plenty of ‘go way mummy’ so I can’t say that she doesn’t have a balance to her behaviour.
He’s on the brink of so many things at the moment. Almost crawling and almost popping a second (and third and forth) tooth. That leaves for a frustrated little man than just wants to be moving. One thing that he has learnt that seems to have stuck this week though is a clear ‘Mama’. Not just ‘mmmm….aaaaahhhh…..mmmmmm’ sounds which have been happening for a while now, but a proper ‘Mama’. The Dada’s far outweigh them though!
