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.
