This week’s Living Arrows post is a little different. As I start to ponder on what exactly I was doing this time 2 years ago ( probably napping, I did a lot of that, oh and playing Candy Crush to relieve the boredom, it was pre blog days when I had time to get bored) I thought it would be nice to celebrate the current rather than the past, you see my baby’s turning 2 which explains the nostalgia and reflective mood I’m in.
Thats 2 whole years of huge brown eyes filling me with so much love which I never thought possible as I already had a full heart from being a mum to 2 others amazing and wonderful boys, but it turned out I did have room and my mummy pride and love split quite easily three ways.
I admit that the whole birthday buzz takes a little more toned down affair third time round. Knowing that he’s really not going to know what he’s missing out on and admitting the big toddler birthday parties I had in the past resulted in tired, over whelmed and grumpy children, I played it cool.
Just a couple of mum friends who also had toddlers the same age, were invited round for coffee and cakes and a subdued party elevenses’ for the little ones. One thing which I’ve always found difficult with having boys though, is how to dress them for these occasions. I’ve done shirts, I’ve done trendy t shirts and I’ve done fancy dress. So this year I opted for a cute little leggings and sweatshirt combo, with a twist.
This great funky outfit came courtesy of Little Chickie baby boutique, which stock quality and unique brands all under one shop. I love dressing my boy in comfortable
and individual clothes which don’t hinder his play which is why I though these Blade & Rose leggings would be perfect, especially teamed with a pale blue Blossom and Bob sweatshirt, the colour really suits his complexion .
And with a french holiday on my wishlist, if we ever make it, he’ll know one word at least!
I have been gifted some items of clothing to share with you in this post.
