A whole year of Living Arrows (2017)

My lovely friend Donna, from What The Redhead Said, runs a weekly linky called Living Arrows. Parents are invited to share a photograph, every week on Monday, to show what their child has been up to in the past week. I started taking part every week from January 2017, as I wanted to document how much my daughter Daisy was changing each week.

Now that I have completed a year of Living Arrows (2017) I’d love to share with you some of my favourite photographs from the past year. I hope you’ll enjoy looking back, and seeing how much Daisy has grown!

Living Arrows 1/52 - 2017

This was the first photograph that I shared in 2017 from Living Arrows 1/52. I was really excited to share a photograph every year but wasn’t sure if I would actually manage it!

Living Arrows 2/52

Capturing Thomas and Daisy together like this was another lovely moment for me. This was when I started thinking more about capturing unposed photographs. This was from Living Arrows 2/52.

Living Arrows 4/52 2017 1 - Daisy in the soft play tunnel

Daisy loved exploring soft play in Living Arrows 4/52.

We took a trip to the park and the allotment for Living Arrows 12/52.

We went on holiday for Living Arrows 18/52 and Daisy was a bit moody – but we had a good time!

We took a trip to soft play with Daisy’s cousin Matilda for Living Arrows 20/52.

We had great fun at the park with my brother and sister for Living Arrows 44/52.

Living Arrows 47/52 - Daisy on holiday

We had lots of holidays this year but on this one, for Living Arrows 47/52, I saw just how grown up Daisy is becoming! She had a wonderful time and enjoyed all of the lights and decorations for Christmas.

Living Arrows 50/52

We enjoyed a snow day for Living Arrows 50/52 which was great fun!

Living Arrows 52/52 - Merry Christmas!

This was the final photograph of the year for Living Arrows 52/52 which was taken on Christmas Day!

I have really enjoyed looking back at the past year and completing my first year of Living Arrows. Daisy has grown so much and I feel really grateful to this lovely linky for helping me have these posts to look back on. I’m looking forward to taking part every week in 2018!

If you enjoyed this post I’d love it if you could pin it on Pinterest!

I love the idea of all Living Arrows photos on one post to quickly look back on. Would you mind if I did similar and gave you a link back?

Thank you, the time just flies by when they are small! x

Wow, hasn't she grown so much? I don't think we realise until we look back. I think my favourite is the one for week 47, she has the most gorgeous eyes xx


Saturday 20th of January 2018

Thanks so much, most of the time they appear blue but they also look green in certain lights. She's got the best of both mine and Daddy's eyes. I love it! x

Between weeks 35 and 52 she goes from baby to little lady doesn't she? She's so gorgeous and it is such a good way to collect such great memories isn't it? Pretty much all I post now I'm back at full-time job!


Saturday 20th of January 2018

She really does, it just suddenly happens! That's ok though isn't it, better to have your memory posts than any old thoughts! xx
