Isla Jean, Living Arrows

Living Arrows 49/52

Last week I said it would be a really short post as I was so busy… But my oh my I don’t think I could ever have expected the last week we’ve had! I’m not going to go into detail at all, but let’s just say I don’t want another week like it again! So here is this week’s brief Living Arrows post

Due to that… chaotic and stressful week we’ve had Isla has unfortunately been quite unsettled. Her sleep has been awful, her eating has been rubbish, she has been grumpy and clingy. It has not been fun at all.

This week’s Living Arrows photo is of Isla in one of her very few settled moments this week. She seems to love sitting in her car seat. It’s meant to be in Chris’s car, but it got taken out when he helped a friend move house, and he’s just not round to putting it back in! We try to keep it stored behind the living room door, but she keeps pulling it out again! She has a turtle shaped snack to munch on, and a film about birds (Rio) to keep her happy. She loves birds at the moment. She sat there for about an hour, occasionally getting up for a cuddle or another snack. But it was nice to watch her engrossed in something that wasn’t on Cbeebies!! And so nice to have a little time to myself where she wasn’t whinging or clinging to me.

I’m hoping that this week will be a better one, and that by the end of the week I’ll have been able to recharge some batteries and get my head around everything that has gone on.

I hope your week has been better than ours has. Let me know what wonderful things you’ve been up to!
