Living Arrows | 7/52 + 8/52 + 9/52

Eek! I’ve missed the last two week’s Living Arrows but I have been away! You know what it’s like coming back from a holiday – you have to try and catch up on all the usual stuff as well as all of the holiday washing – nightmare! Anyway, we’ve been away skiing which was amazing but I feel like I’ve got all these weeks to catch up on now. The boys have been really, really enjoyable to have (surprisingly!) and they have shown me they can adapt and cope with being put out of their comfort zone which has been so lovely.

They’ve been playing together a lot more recently as well which is just so refreshing because they’re normally at each others’ throats! Having said that, they have also been causing a lot more havoc together; taking the cushions off of my sofa twenty times a day is just one of them.

Teddy has a new found love for popcorn after absolutely raiding the bowl in the pub while we were skiing (he initially sniffed it and turned away until I wiped it along his bottom lip.. and then you couldn’t stop him eating it!). Ted’s physical skills are certainly coming along too. At his age, Toby was able to drop and then kick a ball from mid air and would be leaping off of his cot top changer into our arms. Ted is a lot less daredevil, which I quite like actually.

Toby adored sledding while we were out in Flaine and he asked us at least 10 times a day to go “out in the snew on my shed” so he go slide down the hill. I was a bit wary at first as Toby is known for being a bit clumsy but he only had one small injury in the whole time we were there thankfully; don’t worry, just a fat lip!

We’re now trying to settle back into our routine again, which has actually been more difficult than the post Christmas break, I’m not sure why! Either way they’re both getting back on their feet and into the swing of things. Anyway, here’s some pictures from the last couple of weeks.

    I love that first picture – they sound so much like my two with occasional moments of cuteness amongst the usual squabbling! It looks like you had a fab time skiing though – I’m very jealous :) #LivingArrows

    What a stunning picture of a little sibling cuddle! The worst thing about a holiday is having to come back to normal with a bump :( Hope it is getting back to normal for you now!x #Livingarrows

    That cuddle photo is bloomin’ gorgeous! I love that your boys are so different, one completely fearless and the other a bit more reserved. They sound like the perfect pair x

    I hate the slump after a holiday – it’s like you need another one to settle and relax a bit isn’t it haha. Such lovely memories – beautiful boys :) xx
