Living arrows 5/52

IMG_7992Yesterday morning we were all snuggled up in bed, delaying getting up for just that little bit longer (we’re all ill & it was Sunday), reading books to our baby (who from now on I will refer to as Poppet, one of her nicknames). I decided this would be as good a moment as any to take my photo for living arrows.

Happy with the photo I had captured, I put my camera down and started getting ready to get up. That’s when we noticed that Poppet seemed to be trying to play peek a boo with us for the first time.

We play peek a boo with her a lot! It the easiest way to get through drying her face without too many tears (and you can often get a little giggle out of her in the process too). This however was the first time she seemed to be initiating it.

She was holding the book with both hands, a short distance in front of her face and strangely for her, she wasn’t trying to eat it!

“Where’s poppet gone?” I said, at which point she pulled the book away from her face in a fit of giggles, arms and legs kicking away in excitement. This was repeated several times before she got bored with it and we continued with our morning routine.

      She doesn’t get bored of it often. She’s been doing it again today with anything she gets her hands on!

    Oh this is so cute! There is nothing sweeter than the sound of a child giggling. Wonderful that you were able to capture this moment.

      I love her giggle so much. It was well timed for me to capture it. I love this photo and the one I fook straight after where she is clearly in fits of giggles.

      It was a lovely moment and it was great that both me and her daddy were there to see it together.
