You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” – Kahlil Gibran
I’m linking up with the lovely Donna from What the Redhead said for my first living arrows post this week. A wonderful Project which celebrates childhood and invites others to share moments from each week.
My first living arrows post has a birthday theme as last week on the 23rd may we celebrated Little monkey’s 2nd birthday. I thought it would be nice to share a few birthday snaps! I spent a fair amount of time on the lead up to her big day looking through all her baby photos and wondering how on earth we now have a beautiful little toddler, where has all that time gone? All those that said it would fly by were spot on!
We were ready after some late night wrapping, Luke and I sorting some decorations and blowing up balloons, of course I had to choose what I think must be some of the trickiest ones available (the packaging did suggest using a balloon pump…oops!) however it was so worth it to see her excited little face, she really does love balloons! We woke bright and early and little one was super excited to discover her gifts and balloons waiting for her downstairs!
After opening her gifts I made her favourite breakfast, nothing too complicated as at the moment her current fave is Weetabix and fruit, ideally strawberries! She also cheekily nabbed a bit of mine and her dada’s bacon! it was lovely that Luke could be home with us and enjoy a relaxed breakfast with our beautiful birthday girl.
We had such a lovely day visiting family, later on in the week we had a soft play party for Freya and her friends so we kept her birthday nice and chilled with a pizza lunch at Nana and Bampy Brushneen’s and then off to visit my parents for a little tea party. Keeping it more relaxed worked out well as unfortunately little one was coming down with a cold but despite that still had lots of fun and was only a little bit grumpy when she got tired, aren’t we all!
The tea party went well, Freya was much more interested in the caterpillar cake than anything else at the table and couldn’t wait to get her hands on it and stuck in! She went a little shy when we sang happy birthday but that perfect smile of hers was beaming and it absolutely melted my heart. She’s growing into such a loving, beautiful and funny little girl with so much character and we are so very proud and lucky to be her Mummy and Daddy.
I’m very excited to link with Donna and you can see who else has linked up with living arrows here…
