Living Arrows 1/52 (2018)

**This post may contain affiliate links.

It’s the start of a brand new year so I thought I would join in with the weekly Living Arrows linky run by Donna over at What The Redhead Said

The idea behind Living Arrows is to celebrate childhood. It’s name is taken from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

I will aim to post every Monday sharing a photo of baby girl of what we have been up to the previous week. I think it’s a wonderful idea to document how much she is developing and growing everyday. She is currently 23 months old and time is flying by quickly. Plus with a new baby arriving in April there will be lots more photos to share this coming year!

This past week has been baby girl’s second Christmas. She doesn’t understand the concept of Christmas but thoroughly enjoyed opening all her presents. My husband and I didn’t buy her a lot as we knew family would. Tearing open the wrapping paper and playing with the cardboard was her highlight!  Oh and her new kitchen! All we have had all week is her going around with her kettle and a cup saying “cup of tea?” then taking it away from you!

    Haha I totally know what you mean – M loved all of the wrapping paper and has now got the idea of opening presents – but she tears off the tiniest bits of paper, one at a time, handing each piece to us…so it did get a bit tedious! Hopefully she’ll be a bit more gung ho next year! Happy New Year! #LivingArrows

    Ahh a kitchen is the best toy. I’ve had so many concoctions of food made for me over the years and they’re still coming! Hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year xx
