Living Arrows 29/52

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran

This photo makes my heart hurt, in a good way!

It’s been a tough couple of weeks because we’ve unknowingly been dealing with a dairy allergy. Poor little Elfin has been really suffering, and of course her only way of letting us know has been crying – nay screaming. A Lot. It’s been exhausting for us all, and I am so relieved to finally know how I can help her.

Anyway, it’s photos like this one which make every hard day (and night!) totally worth it.

The love Pixie already shows for her sister is completely adorable, and I’ve no doubt that Elfin will reflect it right back at her in a few months time. We’re already getting the occasional smile, particularly since her symptoms have begun to improve now that I’ve gone dairy and soy free.

    Well done on going dairy and soya free, I’m glad her symptoms are improving! This is an adorable photo of the two of them together, I look forward to eventually having a sibling for my daughter!
