Living arrows 15/52 -

The time, place, family and story behind the picture may be different. But if you look back through many a baby photo album there are certain scenes that get re-enacted time and time again. 

A brand new, pink baby in a Moses basket, the first taste of food from a spoon, first time on the swings... Or the bathing the baby in the kitchen sink shot...

Living arrows 14/52 - snuggles

Today was mostly wet and miserable. This afternoon while Lucy napped, Ella and I cuddled on the chair and watched some TV.  It's very rare these days that it's only Ella and I - makes every little snuggle more important xx

Living arrows 13/52 - my little artist

Ella just loves drawing. She often asks for 'paper' and will sit and draw at her little table for ages. It seems to be the one activity that holds her attention and calms her inner whirlwind for a time. Her favorite thing to draw at the moment is a face, asking you to draw her a 'big circle' and then she tells you to draw a mouth, eyes, ears, nose, sometimes glasses and always curly hair! 

Last summer we came across a fab easel in a local charity shop. During the hot days it lived with her chalks, crayons and paper outside. When it got cooler I put the easel in the kitchen with the intention of putting it away until the summer but I found Ella would gravitate to it and it was useful to keep her occupied while I was in the kitchen. So it has become a permanent feature. And she's getting good at 'mark making' - lines, scribbles and attempts at circles too. I often come into the kitchen to find a new 'picture' on her chalkboard (and sometimes she even decorates the kitchen cupboards too...)
