Living Arrows 2017: 8/52

Living Arrows 2017: 8/52

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.

Have you noticed the nights getting lighter where you are? I normally don’t notice a change until the end of February when it is light when I leave work, but as I am at home on maternity leave at the moment, I have begun to notice it considerably earlier. It’s lovely that this means Daddy and Dex get a few extra precious minutes together in the daylight, so this week they went out on our balcony together to feed the seagulls.

Dexter adored watching Daddy throw the bits of bread off the balcony’s edge. The seagulls fly along side our balcony and try to grab them before they hit the water. It resulted in a really infectious giggle from Dexter. You can see a video clip of it on my Instagram here.

We are so lucky to live alongside such a beautiful waterfront. The view of the sun setting is truly spectacular.

    His laugh in that video is beautiful! Such a proper belly chuckle!! Lovely to have captured such a sweet moment between father and son, I’m sure Dex will love seeing that when he’s older!

    Ah they look so happy here. I really am noticing the days getting lighter, I no longer have to have lights on in the car on the way to work and I am home when it is light, it’s also been so warm in the south too, Spring is definitely on its way x #LivingArrows

    The lighter evenings definitely make such a difference. It always feels like we have such less time in the winter x

    His little face, he looks so happy! There is something really nice about the afternoons/evenings getting lighter isn’t there. x #LivingArrows
