Best Friends {Living Arrows 19/6/17}

These two melt me. Whenever we are out they’re as thick as thieves (unless Lexi is rolling in something she shouldn’t or eating something she shouldn’t), and whenever you ask J what she wants to do its ‘take Lexi for a walk’

Where did the Time go? {Living Arrows 12/6/17}

This week we had a parents introduction evening at J’s school. It wasn’t really real until then if I’m to be honest. She’s my one and only baby and we love our routine and the next few months will see her move from her current nursery to school and us become school run parents, which I’m just not sure if I’m ready for. J on the other hand definitely is – she’s on daily countdown and is looking forward to wearing the coloured jumper she wants, and is excited to meet her new teacher soon

Cheeky Face {Living Arrows 4/6/17}

This week we’ve relaxed, we’ve spent quality time at home as a family, having had our good friend stay with us last weekend and it’s been much needed. After a busy few months with things planned pretty much every weekend planned we’ve got a relatively calm June and that works for us as July is jam packed

Growing Up {Living Arrows 22/5/17}

4.5 years old this week – closer to 5 than 4, growing up so fast and with such a beautiful soul. This week she told me that one of her friends at nursery fell over and hurt herself, so she offered to kiss it better like mummy does when she hurts herself but was sad that her friend said no. We’ve been told by the nursery that she’s the first to help newcomers in the room, the first to tend to someone who is hurt and the first to tell people when their parents have arrived

Daisy Chains {Living Arrows 15/5/17}

Sometimes you just need to step back from normal routine and enjoy the blue skies that are upon you. This week had one of those days – we decided on Wednesday we were going to skip swimming lessons and spend it with my mum in her garden and make the most of the day that we had been treated to. J and I sat for a bit and made daisy chains, putting them together while she ran around trying to get the ‘best ones’ for me to keep our little production line going

Cheeky Smiles {Living Arrows 2017 – 10/4/17}

The girl and her curls. The one who tries her hardest not to show you she has a handful of crisps from daddy and then stands there laughing with him at her cheekiness whilst mummy pretends not to notice

Pausing {Living Arrows 2017 – 20/3/17}

It’s been a long, hard few days but a successful week as well. I started to prepare my photos for my monthly round up and realised whilst there have been lots of adventures as a household we have barely seen or spent any quality time together. This weekend we decided to change that and reset and pause our hectic schedules as a household

Dreams {Living Arrows 2017 – 13/3/17}

Over the last few months J’s dreams have become more vivid, some good, some bad. The bad ones wake her up in tears and there’s no real theme to them, just her imagination running wild at night

Because they are so vivid she’s convinced they will happen so after a very early wake up call one morning I promised her we would make a dream catcher, explaining that they wouldn’t stop her dreams – instead they would catch the bad ones and prevent them from becoming real – letting the good ones happen and pass through

A Girl and Her Pancake {Living Arrows 2017 -6/3/17}

The concentration of a little girl who has been given a pancake and a pan (cold) to practice on. After what seemed like an eternity of asking she finally got her wish to help daddy and then do it on her own. Lots of falls, lots of laughs and lots of memories made along the way

Concentration {Living Arrows 2017 – 27th February}

I really am enjoying this monthly portrait project and recording each different snippet of my little girl as she continues to grow and amaze me. This week we visited Mottisfont Abbey for their half term trail and although she cannot read she loves to have the books, maps and leaflets we are given. She is often asking what each word is, takes it all in and we’ve also spent a lot of time talking about phonics and practising how to put words together through the letter
