Living Arrows 3/52

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth

Kahlil Gibran

This weekend we celebrated BattleKid’s third birthday, albeit a little late. As part of those celebrations, every year we put BattleKid in a t-shirt which is age 10 and compare it to the previous years to see how much he has grown. I was pleasantly surprised to see him starting to fill this t-shirt! I took a few more pictures while we had him there and this one is my favourite of the others I took. I wonder what is going through his head? He looks so pensive and deep in thought, even if it was only for a fleeting second or two.

Living Arrows 1/52

Living Arrows is a photography linky run by Donna of What the Redhead Said. It’s something I have been following on Aby’s blog, YouBabyMeMummy, and always wondered what it was about. Now that I’ve looked into it more I’ve decided to do it this year. I’ve enjoyed doing the My Sunday Photo posts and think this can be something I do alongside it.

Living Arrows is about celebrating childhood and stems from a poem by Kahlil Gibran

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth

and is a chance for those taking part to share a moment from their lives in the week.

So in my first ever Living Arrows post I’d like to share a picture I took last week of BattleKid while we are on holiday that I think sums up both the innocence and fun of childhood; sticking your tongue out at your own reflection in an elevator mirror! It’s not the best picture and excuse the blurriness, but I had to use it as it sums up BattleKid’s fun side.

01/52 My Sunday Photo: 01/01/2017

So, 2016 is done and dusted and today heralds the start of a New Year. My hopes for this year? Lots more happy days with BattleKid like the one above where we went searching for bluebells in May. More family time and time together with BattleDad such as our holiday we’ve just returned from. More adventures with BattleDog. More discovering the world together and discovering it through the eyes of someone who is three.
I cannot believe BattleKid turns three tomorrow. Where has the time gone? This time three years ago I had been in labour for almost 12 hours and had just entered the birthing pool which was such a relief. All was going swimmingly (if you’ll pardon the pun) but little did we know that, fast forward another 12 hours, we would end up in theatre on the verge of an emergency c-section. That is all in the past and BattleKid is a happy, healthy, boisterous 3 year old who knows his own mind and isn’t afraid to let you know that!
I want to take this opportunity to say Happy New Year to all my readers and followers and hope that 2017 is a great one for everyone. I have a good feeling about this year coming!
