What a week! My lovely husband and I got away for the night and Daisy had her first sleep over at Grandma’s house. It went really well. We can’t wait to go away again now in another couple of months. Anyway my living arrows 33/52 post is now live.

Living Arrows is a linky from the lovely Donna from What The Redhead Said. Parents are invited to link up weekly and share photos of their children from the previous week. I love taking part and I’m looking forward to looking back at the end of the year.

Living Arrows 33/52 – 2017

Living Arrows 33/52 - Daddy and Daisy together

This week we let Daisy walk to the town for the first time. This is almost 1 mile of walking. She managed to walk 2/3 of the way there (up a hill) and the entire way home.

We took the pram to town with us, to carry all the shopping, and I’m glad we did. It was a really long way for Daisy to walk and a little bit of a high expectation! While in the town we ran some errands and Daisy was happy to be pushed around in her pram.

We decided to use *a wrist strap, to allow Daisy some freedom but to ensure she wouldn’t be able to run in to the road. I felt really confident using this and am not worried what anyone else may think about it! Being able to keep Daisy safe, while allowing her to explore, is really important to me. Tom was slightly less keen on using it but then when Daisy started trying to pick up a cigarette butt it meant she wasn’t too far away to pick up swiftly!

I can’t believe how fast Daisy is changing. She is growing up so fast. The time just flies by – I can’t believe we are almost 2/3 of the way through the year already! Hope you’ve enjoyed this Living Arrows 33/52 post.

      Thanks – I was amazed! She was knackered by the end of it but I want her to be used to being active from a young age.

    That’s pretty good walking for such a little one. We used old school Mothercare reins with N, but not for long as he was really good at walking nicely and watching out for traffic. #iivingarrows

      We have tried the reins but Daisy just tumbles over every single time, so wonder if she’s a bit conscious of them being there? She isn’t a fan of the strap really but eventually she caves in and walks!

    Oh wow, she looks so big now walking along! There isn’t much baby left of her is there?! x

      I know right?! Where has my tiny girl gone! 5lb 13oz at birth and look at her now – 98th centile for height! I’ve grown a giant!

    She’s looking so big! And well done her for walking so far, that’s really impressive. We had a set of backpack reins for Rhys when he was younger, because he was such a runner. x #LivingArrows

      I’ve tried a few things now and the wrist strap is the most effective so far, however, I haven’t tried the backpack reins, just reins on her back so thanks for that.

    Well done Daisy for walking that far, no mean feat with little legs ! We used a little backpack with a strap attached so Jake could have the freedom but we could still be in control and he couldn’t run off. #LivingArrows

      She’s definitely a fan of walking and climbing so far – which is now! I’m going to try looking for a backpack tonight when I get a minute, thanks for the suggestion!
