Living Arrows 2017 // 26/52

buzzoole codeThis year I am joining in with What the Redhead Said‘s project Living Arrows which is all about celebrating childhood.

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

-Kahlil Gibran

Each week I will be posting a picture of Dexter showing what we have been up to or something new he has learnt.

Here we are at Week 26 of Living Arrows: half way through the year! I cannot believe it. I am so pleased I have done this every week, it’s so nice to have all the posts to look through to see how much Dex has grown and how he has changed. A bit of a sad one this week. Dex fell over in the bath and cut his lip open on Saturday and so we had to take him to Alder Hey for the first time.We have an appointment to see a plastic surgeon first thing Monday morning so keep your fingers crossed for us. Despite looking like he’s done ten rounds with Mike Tyson, he is fairly happy in himself, which is surprising considering this week also saw him get FOUR injections and he is cutting his seventh tooth! Such a brave boy.

    Poor Dex! And poor mummy and daddy too, I swear these babies are over it in a few minutes and we’re there feeling awful for ages! I try and reassure myself that there’s bound to be plenty of bumps and cuts over the next few years, not that that makes it ANY easier. Hopefully today goes well, he’s a brave boy! #livingarrows

    Oh I read about it on Facebook. I hope he is okay now. It must be so hard to see your little boy getting stitches. I don’t think I could face it on any of my two. #livingarrows
