Living Arrows 47/52 – A holiday for us

We have been on holiday for the last week. We have had the most wonderful time. Our week was taken up with lots of relaxing, swimming, soaking in the hot tub at our lodge in Centerparcs and family time. Daisy got to visit Father Christmas in Santa’s Grotto and she loved it (mostly). We ate out, had good food, enjoyed lots of time together and it was just the loveliest week. I can’t wait to do it again already! This weeks living arrows 47/52 post is now live.

This is Daisy on the lead up to Santa’s Grotto where she saw Father Christmas. There were lots of fantastic little houses to see, with decorations. There was also fake snow – which Daisy LOVED! She kept telling me ‘snow Mummy!’ which was adorable!

Living Arrows 46/52 – A look at our week

Last week was another fantastic one. Hooray! We’ve finally got to the bottom of what has been causing Daisy to vomit pretty much every single night. Her multi-vitamin. I know, I know, that sounds ridiculous. It turns out there is a product that is sometimes derived from dairy products, and it would seem that this time it was, and it has been making Daisy really unwell. I’m quite cross about the whole situation but really relieved that we have got to the bottom of why she has been vomiting so much. That is the main thing and hopefully means we can enjoy our holiday now – which we will be on already when you read this! This weeks living arrows 46/52 post is now live.

Daisy used to LOVE this train but now she’s really gone off of it – as you can possibly tell from her face!

Living Arrows 45/52 – A look at our week

What a week – a good one! We have had Halloween, Fireworks Night and LOTS of family time. Thomas has been working nights so we have been able to spend lots of time together in the afternoons. It is really nice to have Thomas around to help out a little with the daytime parenting too. I love that we get to eat dinner together every afternoon before Thomas goes to work and he is there to see Daisy go off to bed. This weeks living arrows 45/52 post is now live.

I know this is a poor quality picture but my girl looks SO happy. Daisy has been quite moany for the last two weeks. I took this photograph last week, on Monday, when we went to Van Hages to see the Christmas displays. Daisy absolutely loved running in and out of all the play houses and sheds and she must have said ‘house’ at least 100 times. At least.

Living Arrows 44/52 – A look at our week

Regular readers will know that last week was a poor one for us. Daisy was in hospital and there were other things going on too. This week has been MILES better. Hooray! We’ve had a pretty good week, besides Daisy being grumpy most of the week. We have spent several days together as a family which has been fantastic and we have just finished a lovely week together. This weeks living arrows 44/52 post is now live.

Last week we got out and about a lot more. We took Daisy to the park and she absolutely loved it. It was so nice for her to be able to run and burn off some steam. She had a great time seeing her Uncle Richard too – who always makes her laugh!

Living Arrows 43/52 – A look at our week

Well, what a rubbish week last week was. I had mentioned in my last Living Arrows post that Daisy had been under the weather. This got worse and by the middle of the week Daisy was in hospital. She is home now, and has perked up considerably, but has an upper respiratory infection and a few other things going on. She is still vomiting lots, but that isn’t unusual with her allergy syndrome. It is really hard at times to tell whether it is her FPIES or something else that is making her ill. Anyway, this weeks living arrows 43/52 post is now live.

Living Arrows 43/52 - Daisys drip

Daisy had only been at the hospital a short time when she was put on a drip for dehydration. I knew, as soon as this was fitted with a cannula, that we would be at the hospital for the night. At least.
