Living Arrows 5/53 (2018)

**This post may contain affiliate links.

Here we are on week 5 of Living Arrows. You can catch up on last week’s post here : Living Arrows 4/53.

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”

The week started off pretty well, baby girl has been picking up lots of phrases and words. She recognises her favourite cartoon characters and goes around calling out Skye, Marshall, Gekko, Owlette! It’s so cute!

From Friday onwards and all weekend she has had a terrible cold and sore throat. She seems to have inherited the way a cold comes out in her from me. Whenever I get a cold I suffer with runny eyes and sore throat. Bless her she’s much better now, but Friday night she wouldn’t stay upstairs and wanted to come down to the living room. My husband and I stayed up with her most of the night comforting her as she was being sick and full of snot. I had about 3 hours sleep before I had to get ready for work at 5am.

Being 28 weeks pregnant and having to work a full day on just 3 hours sleep was challenging. I kept telling myself you are getting prepared for the sleepless nights when the new baby arrives! I kept myself going on chocolate, chips and cheese toasties at work!

Here is a photo of baby girl earlier in the week before the horrible cold arrived, her new favourite thing is to tip her toy basket up and sit on it, that’s when she isn’t trying to get in it!

    I feel like we have been ill since the beginning of the year. I hope she is feeling better soon. Its difficult to survive on three hours without being pregnant. I hope this week has been kind to you x #LivingArrows

    I remember pregnancy with a toddler being just so hard – especially after nights like that. All of her favourite characters are so familiar to me, how cute! x
