Living Arrows 5/52

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.” Kahlil Gibran

Nate // Wow, what can I say… this little one is growing so much each day and hitting his milestones fast and furiously!  He is full of so much energy and LOVES to make us all laugh.  He is happy and he claps his hands at the slightest thing that has made him pleased.  Today he spent a long time building up his stacking boxes… making sure they were the right way up and clapping for himself when it was done.  He would then stand a few feet back and says “ready, ready, aaaaagh”… and then charged at the tower of boxes.  It was lovely to watch, even Ollie giggled at how funny it was.

Ollie // James was away in London today, and I don’t know if that had something to do with the change in Ollie’s behaviour… not that his behaviour is normally bad… but today he was an absolute angel!  When we got home, he helped me tidy, got a snack for him and Nate and he played with Nate happily while I got dinner started.  He chose a jigsaw to do with Nate and played lego with him too, before playing some Minecraft in the iPad… when he saw dinner was almost ready he set the table for me… I didn’t even ask him to… and when it was bathtime he helped get Nate undressed, which was the funniest thing.  They both thought it was hilarious. He brought pine cones home from school today.  He is really precious and I love how proud he looks when you tell him he has done good.

    Joel has the same building blocks, but his are more chewed looking than your blocks! We got them when he was 10months, the height of his teething! Not sure I rate them, a bit flimsy? Anyways, beautiful photos!

    He is so cute. My daughter does the same. She takes her time stacking and then wham, it’s all over. And they truly get such a kick out of it. I wonder what it’s all about. #SitsBlogging
