As I write this I can’t quite believe that the next Living Arrows post I do will go live on my baby’s first birthday. I don’t want to sound like a stereotypical parent, oh sod it, I do… where did the time go?! This week will entirely be spent sobbing into my baby’s hair (I refuse to call him a toddler just yet!) and hiding in a corner refusing to acknowledge the passing of time. Clearly I have issues.
It feels like every week I talk about huge changes and milestones and this week is no different, we kicked off the week with buying his first pair of big boy shoes. Since then have spent every moment using them outside! A big change has kicked off at our house and we’ve got the builders on site. It’s meant that although I have to spend my home days studiously avoiding the topless youths in the garden, I no longer have to entertain my child (or the dog for that matter). Instead he spends his time peering out of the catflap at them or banging on the patio doors until they wave back at him. It’s good for him to have a hobby, right?
This weekend we visited Pecorama; a local attraction based around model trains. We rode the train for the first time (his face said he was unimpressed), attacked the soft play and explored the gardens. For a little person, he has very little fear. He’s quite happy to toddle around without a backward glance for us, especially if there are bigger children to stare at! This photo is my favourite of the day, my little explorer in the play park we had to ourselves.
