Living Arrows 2/52

Living Arrows 2/52

Last week marked a new chapter for our 3 year old. He started nursery, but as it was only a settling week for him to get used to the environment, etc., so we’ll take today as the first official day of nursery – with pictures […]

My 10 Favourite Baby Essentials

My 10 Favourite Baby Essentials

When I had my first baby I didn’t quite know what I would need or wouldn’t, so I figured it out along the way. Of course I read a lot online but when the baby comes, you realise you probably spent too much money on […]

Living Arrows – 1/52 [2019]

Living Arrows – 1/52 [2019]

I’m so excited to take part in this project which is all about celebrating childhood. It’s hosted by Donna at What The Readhead Said every Monday and it’s my first year doing it. I love the idea behind it because it challenges me to take pictures of my children every week and document everything they are doing. One day they can look back and smile!

The name of this project is also so special; just like in the Psalms 127:4 it says “Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are children born in one’s youth”; so children are indeed Living Arrows.

I used to email them once a month in their first year of life updating them with whatever they were doing at that moment, but that’s stopped now because I’m always so busy. That’s why I think I will love taking part in Living Arrows!

We started 2019 by going to the swimming pool. Nathan already knows how to swim in the water with the armbands of course, but Josh still needed us to hold him. Last week however, he gained more confidence and was able to be on his own for a few seconds at the time. We were all so happy for him!

We are also so lucky to have a park near us where there are deer so we go to feed them carrots once in a while as well as going out for a walk and spend time together. We did that last week too!

Why don’t I give my children sugar?

Why don’t I give my children sugar?

I have been wanting to write about this for a very long time because it has been on my mind a lot. Do we need sugar? Does our body need it and most importantly, do our children need sugar? My toddler is almost three years […]

When Wallaroo got in touch asking if I’d like to try their dried fruits, I was so up for it. Those who know me, know that I don’t have a sweet tooth and I actually avoid sweets and sugary stuff as often as I can for […]

7 Tips For When You Get a Dog

7 Tips For When You Get a Dog

There are few days more exciting in a young family’s life than when they bring home a dog. There’s a new member of the clan, and it’s oh so lovable and furry! We got our dog a year after we got married; even before we had any children so she was practically the first member of our family. Our German Shepherd, Sasha, was only 8 weeks old when we welcomed her into our family and she was the most adorable and cute thing ever.  However, while your excitement will be sky-high, it’s also important to remember that canines can be difficult, demanding work. To make sure that you – and your dog – adjusts well and has a prosperous time in your household, you’ll need to know and do a few things. (more…)
