“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
– Kahlil Gibran
I discovered the Living Arrows linky run by Donna of What The Redhead Said midway through last year. It’s a weekly linky when you share a photo of your child/children from the week before. I’ve been wanting to join in since I first found it, but as it’s a weekly linky, I decided I would wait for the new year so I can have a full 52 posts (hopefully) by the end of the year (that’s my organisational brain taking over!)
Now we are on the first day of the new year, I can finally join in! I’m excited to share some lovely photos of Alfie and the new arrival throughout the year. I reckon this week is a pretty good one to start with, as it was Christmas last week! Whilst it was a little quieter than I’m used to for Christmas, we still had some brilliant family moments. Alfie struggled a little with being out of his routine, and in turn we all struggled a bit with late bedtimes, late morning and general chaos, but I know that’s to be expected over Christmas!
My favourite photo of the week is this one of Alfie opening his presents on Christmas morning. Coming from a big family, he had lots of gifts, but it’s the first year he’s really enjoyed opening them and discovering what’s inside. This Christmas is definitely going to be a lot busier, so it was nice to appreciate a bit of a quieter morning and letting Alfie do his thing.
