Living Arrows 2/52 – 2017

Well Living Arrows 2/52 is here already! I can tell that I am really going to be looking forward to Monday from now on. I quite like Monday already but it can’t hurt to have something else to look forward to. Being able to look back on these posts next year will be lovely – just to see how much Daisy has grown and changed.

Living Arrows is a linky by the lovely Donna from What The Redhead Said that you can find here. Each week parents link up to share photos of their children from the past week. It is a lovely chance to reflect on those small but lovely moments in life.

Living Arrows 2/52 – 2017

Living Arrows 2/52

Isn’t the inquisitive nature of children just fascinating? Daisy is now at an age where she wants to explore. This is the first time that Daisy has noticed a pocket! It is fascinating to watch Daisy at this age – you can almost see her cogs turning!

My husband is such a wonderful Father. He is always happy to enjoy cuddles with Daisy, complete his share of the less glamorous parenting jobs and Daisy adores him. When he is working day shifts I often see Daisy looking towards the door and she simply says ‘Dada’. Usually she goes to playing toys right after but it still makes me sad for a few seconds!

    I love this age when they really start to notice the world around them, everything is interesting to them. It’s so sweet that she misses her ‘dada’. Jake often picks my phone up and says ‘talk to Daddy’ it does tug at your heart strings a bit. #livingarrows

      Aww that is so sweet but so sad at the same time!

    This is so cute. This was one of my favourite stages of baby 🙂 #livingarrows

    Ah, I totally agree, this is such a lovely age where they’re so interested in how everything works! Max is obsessed with pockets still now but I clearly remember when he first discovered them – his face lit up! #LivingArrows

      It is the best isn’t it! I love watching my daughter learn.

    Oh so cute! I love the idea of living arrows! Xx

    This is such a lovely photo. It’s amazing the things they learn and notice – and how quick they go from not noticing much at all to taking in the whole world around them. I’m so glad I’ve given you something else to look forward to on a Monday 🙂 x

      They sure do, it seems to happen in the blink of an eye. Thanks for having me Donna!

    I love them at this age, they pick up on new things so quickly. It’s fascinating. Harry’s never really taken an interest in pockets, Amelia on the other hand was obsessed at that age #LivingArrows

      Daisy loves touching everything. Last night she was opening and closing the kitchen drawers for at least 10 minutes while I cooked dinner!

    Daisy is so cute! It’s really lovely when they start noticing things around them more. I remember my two both having phases of exploring zips/buttons on our clothes etc and finding them fascinating!

    • katykicker January 10, 2017 / 7:12 am

      It sure is. Daisy hasn’t experienced zips or buttons yet – sounds fun!

    It’s amazing when we watch them learning about the little things we take for granted. They do have special relationships with their dads to #livingarrows

    Great picture – some of my favourites of my daughter are daddy daughter pics. #livingarrows

    Dex has just started babbling DA-DA. I don’t think it’s associated with my husband yet but that must be incredible to see. It’s lovely to read about husbands who are hands on dads. I see so many just let their wives/girlfriends get on with it. My husband is similar to yours, always willing to help out.

      That is so cute. Daisy started off like that and now she understands that my husband is Daddy. It is so nice!

    Aww, I can actually picture her pointing to the door saying dada, bless her <3 The look of fascination on her face in the picture is simply adorable. Really focused on her new discovery! Katie x

    I’m really looking forward to doing a full collage at the end of the year to see how they’ve both grown! This is a lovely capture of them both, I wonder what was so fascinating!

      What a wonderful idea! I love the sound of that.
