Living Arrows {2018} 28/53

July 9, 2018

Every week I join in with Living Arrows, a blog linky run by Donna at What the Redhead Said. The name Living Arrows comes from a poem by Kahlil Gibran; “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”, and each Monday I share a photo of M, and one of B, and a bit about what we’ve been up to the previous week.

This week has been a busy one, with lots going on! It started off quietly, but then we’ve sort of barrelled our way towards the weekend with increasing speed. On Thursday, B had her bi-weekly visit to the hospital. She had her Pavlik harness checked and was able to take it off to have a nice bath. It was lovely seeing her enjoying the water, but quite bittersweet at the same time as I know that M would love to be able to share her nightly bath with her sister sometimes! B has a hip scan in two weeks’ time to see if the harness is working. The physiotherapists have told me to think of it as a progress scan and to expect her to be in the harness for a total of 12 weeks, but I can’t help hoping that they’ll say it’s all fixed and she can be harness-free for the rest of the summer. I know I’m likely to be disappointed, though!

On Friday, B and I went to Leicester for the pre-launch of the new BabyStyle Oyster 3, which is released later this year. We met up with a lovely bunch of bloggers as well as the BabyStyle team, who are the just the nicest people, so it was definitely worth the drive! Of course, being the pushchair obsessive that I am, I’ve already had the Oyster 3 out and about! This week’s Living Arrows photo is of B in the carrycot. She’s such a chilled out little soul and was quite happy to stay in there while the rest of us were enjoying a little picnic.

M’s photograph was taken at the same time. We had out picnic by Whitlingham Broad, a nice pushchair-friendly walk that isn’t too far from here. We sat in the shade of some trees just by this ruin, which M really enjoyed exploring. It was so nice having some family time outdoors, and it was the perfect temperature in the shade.

This week, B has her last set of immunisations for a little while, so I’m looking forward to those being over and done with. We’ve also got a full schedule of classes for M to go to, so it should be a mixture of busy, but fun and relaxed!

    Hope B’s scan goes well – I think it’s normal to be optimistic, and not something to beat yourself up about. 12 weeks seems so long when they’re small but in the scheme of life it’ll be a blip in your rearview in no time!

      Thank you. I know, and I would rather it be fine long term that for them to remove the harness too soon and have her need a more invasive intervention later x

    That walk looks lovely – and I am always so jealous of new pushchairs, they’ve come so far since LP was born! x

  3. I love the composition of the first photo. I hope Bs immunisations go well. I used to dread them!

  4. That is such a sweet photo of B in the carrycot! Hope the scan goes well and shows that the harness is helping. x #livingarrows

  5. Hope the last of the immunisations went well and you’ve had a great week. The buggy sounds great and it looks like a wonderful place to explore x

    Aww, I love B’s picture this week – she does look totally chilled out! I hope everything goes OK with her scan. And M looks to be in her element doing some exploring 🙂 #LivingArrows

      Thank you, me too. I’m so worried they’re going to say that it hasn’t worked at all and she needs surgery x
