Living Arrows Week Fifteen {2015}

The past week has seen a change in Tigger, if I’m honest it has been coming on gradually for a few weeks but this week has seen the change take hold.

Somewhere between being that cute little boy who only has to give me a look before he is forgiven for whatever he has just done and the one who is unsure about doing new things, unsure of climbing on and off things, unsure about the world around him – he has changed into this cheeky, full of energy, chatter and eagerness to try new adventures.

Don’t get me wrong I’m not complaining, I’m loving seeing this new side to him. He has surprised me so much this past week that I wonder what has happened to make him come out of his shell and turn into this cheeky little boy in front of me.

The boy who has taken to copying everything that Roo is saying, listening to them in the back of the car as he recites something else she has said. Swiftly followed by Roo saying ‘are you going to copy everything I say?’ and him repeating it – it’s really quite funny, not that Roo finds it so funny.

The boy who will stand his ground when it comes to things he does and doesn’t want to do. A week of poor eating again but you have stood looking at me, hands on hips ‘I am not hungry!’ with a determined look upon your face that makes me know that when you want something to eat you’ll come and ask.

The boy who asked to go on a fairground ride at the local Easter fair at the weekend and not only went on his own but truly loved it!

    Lovely photo, looks like he’s having a great time! It’s funny how you suddenly notice a big change in them, it’s like a sudden realisation as to how much they’ve grown and changed #LivingArrows

    Aw bless him. It is funny how they suddenly change isn’t it? I have found that with my daughter in the last few weeks, she suddenly seems very grown up and independent. I think it is lovely but hard when it is your youngest. That is a lovely photo and sums up your words too.

    Wow what a capture. That smile really does say it all. If my son saw this huge life size McQueen I really think he would die on the spot. Amazing adventures. #livingarrows

    That smile is beaming with light, what an absolutely perfect treat. So lovely to read about the character growing in Tigger- they do have an amazing knack of growing in front of our eyes.
