#LivingArrows – Looking Back At Christmas Past

With Christmas currently at the forefront of my mind it got me thinking how things have changed each Christmas for the past couple of years. I decided to use this weeks #LivingArrows post to take a little wander down memory lane to reflect on Christmas’s past.

J’s First Christmas

Here is J at my parents house on his first ever Christmas day, he is snuggled up to his Steiff Bear rolling around in his funky new walker. He seems so tiny in this photo, you can even make out the famous ‘crown’ stork marks on his forehead. Wow he’s grown and so many things have changed since way back then!

E’s First Christmas

Here is E, our beautiful little Princess on her first Christmas. Bless she had barely any hair back then and was suffering with a high temperature and a horrid bug. She seems to have a bit of a thing about getting ill on Christmas day it’s happened twice now so we have our fingers crossed for a ‘healthy’ Chrimbo this year.

I cannot believe how much my kids have grown since these pictures were taken, I also realise how similar they look well obviously they are siblings but you know what I mean! 

Let’s hope this year we have plenty of happy snaps to share from this years ‘big day’, bring it on!

Thanks for reading and as always I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.

    Awww how lovely! I need to find the photos out from Boo’s first Christmas – though she was only two weeks old and it’s all a bit of a blur! Boo seems to get ill for her birthday (which is next week) fingers crossed everyone stays healthy for the rest of December! #LivingArrows

    Oh I loved this! Athena’s first Christmas was a non-event really, a bit of an anticlimax as she was only 4 months old and oblivious! x
