Living Arrows 9/52 {2019} Arthur you are nearly 15 months old

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

Joining in with the 9th week of Living Arrows. Isn’t this year speeding by already! Living Arrows is a lovely linky where you have the opportunity to share photos of family and daily life, one you don’t ever want to forget. I love linking up with Donna’s lovely linky over at What The Red Head Said.

On the 7th of March 2019 this little man will be 15 months old. And I can’t believe it. I can’t believe how big he is and how sweet he is.

I say it often to everyone that he has been my easiest. I think this for many many reasons. But mainly I think he just has a really lovely nature, nothing seems to phase him. He is really relaxed seems to go with the flow and trusts me with everything, the food I give him, the naps I give him, the days out I take him on. Always with the most cheeriest disposition. 

I’ve never had to complain about his sleep. He sleeps through the night and has done since he was born. Which made me panic and worry to start with but he has always been so chilled.

He has the odd bad night of course and sometimes early hours he will come to our bed. Also when he is poorly he doesn’t sleep very well which is completely normal and to be expected. For the most part he is such a happy sleepy boy. 

It shocks me how well he sleeps but I’m not as anxious as I was when I had Sophia and Archie, I trust myself a lot more with the decisions I make as a mum. He trusts me and we are both very happy. 

I also think having regular reiki sessions and doing reiki on myself throughout my whole pregnancy really made him such a calm and chilled baby. 

I looked after myself a lot throughout my pregnancy with Arthur I saw the osteopath a lot too as I suffered terrible SPD with Archie. As soon as I got pain with Arthur which was around 20 weeks I went straight to the osteopath recommended by a lovely friend of mine and attended regularly. As late as 33 weeks I remember not even feeling pregnant as I was so comfortable. Towards the end my Osteopath would gently move his position so that both he and I were comfy. I think if baby is comfortable in the womb everything from the then on goes smoothly.

Pregnancy has a huge effect on our bodies, going through pregnancy and especially three times for me is a huge amount of physical, mental and emotional work. I think sometimes as woman we underestimate that.

But here he is just as calm and jolly today as he was throughout my whole pregnancy and everyday I just fall more in love with his little personality, his cuddles and his sweet nature.

15 months old on Thursday, just a few days away. And I can’t believe it!

    He sounds like such a chilled little guy – and you have such a beautiful relationship too. It’s so nice that you were able to look after yourself more in pregnancy, I know it’s something I should have done more of! x

    Aww, these are such lovely photos of the two of you. Neither of mine have been good sleepers so I really envy you that though! #LivingArrows

    I love your photos!! None of my boys are good sleepers and it is something that frustrates me!

    Lovely to see your relationship in the photos, you both look incredibly happy!

      Thank you! Oh don’t worry my first two were not at all. I have just been very lucky with Arthur. But the sleep gets better as they get older, well it has done for my older two. xx
