Living Arrows 20


I managed to capture the twins in a rare moment of peace this week. I love their big brown eyes, endlessly long eyelashes and crazy wavy hair. This age is just incredible and I am constantly amazed at how much they take in. They think it is hilarious that they can chase each other round the house now, my boys rarely sit still and it always seems like they are on the go. They must learn so much from each other; whatever one is doing to other one wants to do the same and they can go from giggling to squabbling with several seconds.

We haven’t done anything particularly special this week but it has been a nice one as I feel I am seeing so much more of their personalities. Each afternoon we have our time together while Lucas is in pre-school; they like to play little games and bring me their favourite books to read. They are trying to copy words and ask what everything is but they are also letting me know when they are unhappy.

This week I’ve really tried to slow down a bit and just sit and play more. I’ve started to realise that all of a sudden they look big, and grown up, and not a bit like babies anymore. This time is passing quickly, our days can be so busy and I feel like I’m missing little moments with them. This week I’ve reminded myself to just be with them, everything else can wait.

    They are just adorable. Where does the time actually go though? I’ve been doing exactly the same. I just find myself staring, embracing and smiling even more than I did before. I don’t want these months and years to be forgotten. Xxx

      That is so sweet Kat, your girls are just gorgeous it must be lovely to know that they can make you smile just by being there! I feel like sometimes I get so caught up in other things, housework and of course social media, that I am missing things right under my nose! xxx

    I love those not so particularly special weeks where everything is a bit slow. I think its really needed sometimes! Lovely pic, they look like they always sit like that 😉

    Gorgeous boys! I think it’s so nice to be a kid too sometimes, before you know it they’ll be grown up and want nothing to do with us! x

    I think it’s so important to stop and just enjoy the time together. So easy to see time pass so quickly. You’re right though, they are growing up! x #LivingArrows
