Living Arrows 42/52

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran Hubby took this photo, and Elfin is actually in the original shot, in her pram just in front of us. I’ve had to crop it because it was taken portrait instead of landscape, but also because I’m now getting more careful about sharing images of  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran It’s surreal trying to remember life before two, because their bond is almost tangible. When we collect Pixie from preschool, Elfin looks for and turns towards the sound of her voice, like a flower to the sun. It’s the best thing I’ve  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran I love this photo of Elfin quite simply because it captures that beautiful big smile. Now that we have her allergies under control, it’s so lovely to see her blossoming into the laid back, happy baby she was always supposed to be. And how cool is  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran I adore this week’s photos. There is literally nothing in life that fills me with greater pleasure than watching my girls together; any parent of siblings will understand the depth of joy it can bring to see your two babies look at each other with  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran This week I’ve finally been brave enough to trial soya. And it failed because Pixie was poorly, and therefore when Elfin had nigh on identical symptoms it was impossible for us to be certain of the cause. So she didn’t necessarily fail the  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran It was Pixie’s birthday this week. I can’t believe I’m the mother of a three year old – it makes me feel so old! (I also can’t believe I’m mother to not one but two children. That’s insane. And makes me feel  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran I love this photo. It was taken during our weekly meet up with my dad, Pixie’s grandad, at our local petting farm. They’ve recently made lots of changes, most notably the installation of this crazy golf course which Pixie loves. I think this  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran We had such a lovely weekend. On Saturday Pixie had her first proper birthday party (which I’ll be reviewing soon!) which was lovely. And best of all it was mostly stress-free, apart from a small (okay, b-i-g) mix up with the cake… On Sunday  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran This first image was taken – as ever – at our local RHS centre. Pixie is so interested when it comes to creatures, and we’ve tried hard to encourage that curiosity – and not to let our (my) own anxiety of insects and outright  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran On Sunday we went to a local petting farm (a different one to lay week) and they have an area filled with beautiful butterflies. (Does such an enclosure have a special name??) This beautiful butterfly took a bit of a shine to my hubby and wouldn’t  ...
