Living Arrows: Week Twenty Six

It’s been an exciting week for us this week. Everything has been a little upside down with our new move over to my parents. It’s been a week full of adventures (and bruises) as we all learn to navigate living together. Apparently in toddler terms this translates to ‘finding every new hiding place, plug socket and death trap’. But we’ve made it through the first week and we’re all alive. No-one’s killed anyone and the most contentious thing has been sorting the recycling so I think we’ll survive! 

Living Arrows: Week Twenty Six

This weekend has been focused on me for a change. On Saturday, I turned thirty one (sob!) so it’s been a weekend of celebrations. It’s funny that only six weeks ago we were having to help him open his own presents and yet now, he’s ripping in to mine like nobodies business. He even managed to sneak himself his first bit of chocolate whilst I unwrapped – a Hotel Chocolat one, clearly the child has taste! He’s really starting to assert himself more and more these days. His words are coming on leaps and bounds and he’s started making it very clear what he does (and doesn’t) want to do. Unfortunately that also means we’ve had quite a few bumps and knocks as he tends to throw himself off things. I think this photo perfectly sums life up at the moment… he’s got Daddy and Grandma trying to stop him throwing himself off the bench!

    It’s only when you spend a lot of time at other people’s homes that you realise how un-baby proof they are! He sounds like Henry too who loves to launch at things! #LivingArrows

      They’re terrors aren’t they?! Now I go into every place mentally preparing myself for the death trap that it’s BOUND to be!

    I bet he is loving all of the attention staying with the grandparents. If the most contentious issue continues to be the recycling, I think you should sell up and move back! You could afford to give up work then! xx

    Haha, love all the hands on him trying to keep him still! And he clearly has got good taste if he went for your expensive chocolate, you’ll have to hide it from now on! x #LivingArrows
