Living Arrows - Week 39 ♥

I am taking part in I Heart Snapping's weekly Living Arrows project, a photography project to capture an image which represents the magic of childhood through a parents eyes through the actions, likes, dislikes, looks and movements of your own children. Below is my picture for the thirty-ninth week of Living Arrows. 

This week my boy has been teething like crazy, it's strange as three more teeth are already through so I'm wondering if anymore are popping through, only five more to go - yay! He's been fighting his bedtime, trying to stay up with me and sit on my lap, so much so that I've resorted to reading him multiple bedtime stories, stroking his hair, singing and giving him a warm bottle of milk in his cot, the milk worked somewhat and I'm glad to have found something which brings him a little comfort to help him drift off to sleep. Now that the darker nights are here I think it's time to begin lighting the oil burner in his room too, French Lavender Yankee Candle wax tart melts are a winner with him. I love looking at him while he's sleeping. He always looks so peaceful and like a little angel to me. I wonder what he dreams about? I can't wait for the days to come where he tells me about all the wonderful times and characters he's encountered whilst dreaming. I love this boy so much and now he tells me he loves me too - "uv you" he softly murmurs to me as I slip out his door when he's lying down to sleep.

First he was sleeping peacefully.

Then he heard Daddy coming home from work...

I cannot believe that next week marks forty weeks of this project, I love it more and more as the weeks go by.

  2. I often tell my husband that I can't wait for our daughter to tell us what she dreams about. I used to wonder that a lot when she was a little baby and would smile or laugh in her sleep.

  9. He is adorable!!! I don't know much about raising kids (and by that I mean I don't know anything at all) so I can only imagine that warmth you felt when you first heard him say "uv you" or how you feel watching him sleep. This project probably helps you cherish all the little moments with him huh? Great post!

  10. That night light is too cute! I have a hard time falling asleep ( I know I'm an adult and that's pretty weird lol) so I still have to have the tv on and that acts as my night light lol!

  14. I had a little sleepover with my nephews when I went home to visit. I woke up during the middle of the night with the cat purring against me. It knows I'm terrified of it. I woke up in a sweat/panic trying to figure out how to be quiet and not disturb my two little buddies. Then I don't know if this is considered creepy or not because I'm the Aunt lol, but I watched my little nephews sleep for a bit (we were all in the same room lol). They look like little angels, for sure. It was such a cute moment.

  15. I LOVE these pictures! :) I'm going to have to get Britton a similar night light--who wouldn't want stars in their room to help guide them to sleep?!?! Also, melting a lavender wax tart to help him sleep is pure genius. Totally stealing that idea for rough nights!

  22. Teething is such an awful time. He's absolutely adorable, and I will have to look for those melts... they sound heavenly and I'm willing to try anything that would help Cordi sleep.

  28. He's so adorable. And I feel your pain on the sleeplessness. My toddler still doesn't sleep through the night but I've become so fond of the way the light spills through their open door as I sit with him.
