LIVING ARROWS – 3/52 2017

Living Arrows 3/52

Her – we have a competition on our hands now as Mummy is the flavour of the week and this little madam has joined the party for all my attention.  Luckily it’s not directed negatively towards Henry (thank goodness), as she still absolutely adores her “baby brudder”, but it is exhausing as the second I am free I have a two year old launching herself at me.  So for the time being I’m just enjoying the extra cuddles, and telling myself that no one actually NEEDS to pee on their own right?

Him – as he’s moved onto 3 full meals a day, this little man has become a pooping machine and I have to say; boys smell! What is lovely though is you can see him actually playing with his sister now and the two of them interacting. Granted it’s mainly Darcie babbling at him, but he’s utterly captivated by her. To see them sitting together and interacting over a toy reaffirms our decision to have such a small age gap and I cannot wait to see them grow together.

    I really have a soft spot for a beautiful black and white shot. Love this, especially the perspective! X

  2. Aw such a lovely shot! I know how you feel! Mine are 4 years apart. I have an 11 months old baby boy and a 5 year old little girl but they both want to hug me at the same time, they need me both at exact the same moment! haha..but it’s always lovely seeing them play together and care for each other. x #LivingArrows

  3. It sounds like we have a similar small age gap and I couldn’t agree more that it’s amazing to see them interacting more and more each day. Fab b&w shot #livingarrows

  4. It is just so nice when they start to interact more isn’t it? But I remember the constant nappy changes when they first got the hang of weaning – three meals a day and horrendous nappies! x
