Living Arrows 2017 // 3/52

16th January 2017

This 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.

It has been a very quiet week for us this week, we haven’t been out much at all. However, it has been nice to stay in and let Dexter practise his new skill of crawling which he learnt last week. This week’s photo shows him practising standing. I always like to spend a few minutes a day practising a new skill; in the past we’ve done tummy time, sitting, crawling and now it’s time for standing. I am using the beautiful wooden walker he was given for Christmas by his Uncle Billy. Dexter is able to stand for a few seconds, supported by the handle. In the coming months I hope he will use this gift to take his first steps. After we have done a few minutes of standing practise, I build a tower with the coloured alphabet blocks and let Dexter knock it down. Hours of fun!

    It so wonderful watching them learn new skills. Well done little Dexter (fab name!!). I always try and drink in the memories and wish I could recall them just in my mind with the exact clarity as in the moment…. Thankful for videos on phone to more accurately do this!! Kate X

    As soon as they tick off one milestone they start working on the next don’t they? Little is at that stage where she is learning to walk. While she can cruise confidently it could still be several more months before she is walking independently.

    Go Dex, don’t they look so grown up when they’re stood up… It makes me realise they’re actually little people!!
