Living Arrows // 09/52


“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
Kahlil Gibran

Every week I'll be sharing a capture of my littles - either individually or together. To capture how they grow and change week by week.

Ever since Indie was a baby she's not been the biggest fan of getting messy. She's a careful and cautious little thing - never making a mess with toys at home, never learning to climb. So whenever we went out on family adventures we really had to encourage her to get stuck in.

That was until Parker came along though. With his mischievous ways and zero fear, he's actually the one encouraging her to get involved. And it's SO wonderful to watch!

The pictures of my two this week were taken on our most recent weekend adventure. It was crazily windy and trying to rain, but that didn't stop my two. Indiana was hunting for sticks, happily joining me on a bear hunt. Jumping, climbing, and exploring.

Parker was his usual wild self. So happy to be running free - it really is his favourite thing in the world! If he climbed, so did Indie. If she wanted to walk on the logs, so did Parker. Both of them running and playing together.

This really is what having siblings is all about.

  1. Lovely photos! This makes me so excited for my youngest to be able to run around with her big sister although I hate to think the mess they'll get in as my eldest is a complete mud lover. I love Parker's face in that first photo of him, so cute! #LivingArrows

  2. Sounds like you've got 2 proper explorers on your hands! Such lovely photos of both of them. x #LivingArrows

  3. Your two sound just like my two. Alice is very cautious and careful and Holly definitely brings out the fun in her. Making her climb and getting into mischief. I secretly love it. Gorgeous photos of your two, looks like they had so much fun x #LivingArrows

  4. That's such a lovely set of photos! Max is exactly the same - very particular about mess, doesn't like getting muddy or wet - I really hope our second will bring out his adventurous side a bit more, just like your two! #LivingArrows

  5. This looks like my kind of day out - wellies and the great outdoors! The children look so happy! x

  6. Gorgeous photos - I do love a welly shot! #LivingArrows

  7. Siblings are so lovely to watch. We just have the one and I don't think our family is likely to expand so I miss this aspect but i remember what it was like with my sister growing up #LivingArrows

  8. That's so lovely! At the moment our baby is too small to really encourage Monkey to do anything but I am hoping it won't be long. I can't wait to see that sibling relationship develop. I love your photos xx #LivingArrows

  9. They are so cute together - love the wellies too! I can't wait until Gabe can talk and keep up with Toby a bit more, I reckon they're going to get up to so much mischief together :) #LivingArrows

  10. What gorgeous photos - I love their matching non matching wellies! xx
