a moment in time – 29/52

Living Arrows 29/52

This weeks picture came from playing around with some new lights and working with some new focusing styles. While doing so I managed to capture this moment between these two which I just absolutely love. They’re getting to the stage now where they are playing together more and more….but that also means fighting more too. Each of them always seems to want what the other has with a real inability to share! And so the fun begins!!


My little shadow; this little monkey has been both my highs and lows this week. She’s given the best cuddles and told me that I’m beautiful but on the extreme, she has also told me she doesn’t love me for the first time. Yes she doesn’t mean it and the next day she loved mummy again but damn – those toddlers know where to hit you where it hurts! It won’t be the last time I’m sure.


We have another new word this week….”burp”. Still no mummy or mama with contistency but he has “BoBo” (the cat) down perfect. Papa Bear is “Dad Dad” and now everytime he burps we get a running commentary on it! We’ve had quite a few other words such as Nana, up and no a few times but nothing else with real consistency. Not quite walking yet, he’s at that frustrated stage where he desperately wants to be mobile and get involved more but he’s just not physically able to yet.

  8. burp is such a funny word. I am sorry to hear that your little one said she doesn’t love you. I suppose they are testing us and she gives you cuddles so she must love you! #LivingArrows
