I’m a little late to the table for this week’s Living Arrows post. For those who haven’t been following this series, this is a weekly community I join where I share a few snaps from our previous week to reflect what’s been going on in the world of our two littles. Set up by Donna Wishart at What The Redhead Said, I really enjoy joining in every week.  If you’ve read my recent barriers to blogging, you’ll know that I’ve got good reason to be late, but better late than too late.

Now he’s nine months, he’s so close to being on the move and I think it was around this age that his sister made her few first tentative attempts at crawling. It’s funny how, first time around, you’re desperate for them to reach all the baby milestones. With no. 2 I’ve been quite happy just watching him be a baby and haven’t wanted to rush anything along at all. But I reckon he’ll be roaming around the house in the next few weeks – since taking this shot last week he’s now figured out how to get his legs out from under that gorgeous, pudding-sized bum of his. Watch this space!

Choupie is getting more and more independent by the day. She’s mastered potty training since we started before Christmas and now wants me to leave her in the bathroom on her own, shutting the door behind me (give me strength). She’s 2 years 3 months, going on 23. Her latest antic involves pulling the chair away from the kitchen table and propping herself up at the kitchen sink to do the dishes. When she came down from the sink (eventually), she dusted off her hands and said ‘fini vaiselle. Aidé maman!’ (washing up done, helped mummy). Long may the ‘helping’ continue!

What new antics are your little ones up to these days?

    Pudding is growing so fast and will be running around before you know it and I think washing up at the kitchen sink, standing on a chair, is something all children remember fondly from childhood – consider a great memory made! x
