Living Arrows – 2/52

She talks to you constantly, as though you understand her.  As though you answer in voices that only she can hear. She is thinking of selling the pram, she prefers by far to wear you; to be able to kiss your heads and whisper in your ears.  She knows you better than you know yourselves right now.

I love that we do it this way, that I carried you for nine months and she is carrying you now.  It’s nice to take a step back and just watch the three of you, to curl my fingers in the little dog’s fur and think about how fortunate I am and how perfect you are.

You, your mama and Posy-dog are my very best friends.

    Beautiful, just beautiful! Your words, the photos, everything.

    Although I can’t even begin to fathom the logistics of getting two babies into slings or are they both in the one?

    I LOVE that photo of both of them in the sling – safe and secure and just keeping a little bit of an eye on the outside world x

    Absolutely gorgeous. We are celebrating our little boys being 4 today- and yet I remember them like yesterday being this size- perfect.

    This is beautiful.
    One thing I really love about your blog, and how you parent, is how hands on you are. I love seeing how much you hold, carry and wear the twins x

    These pictures are gorgeous, I also a HUGE fan of the sling, and wore my baby all the time, however she wasn’t one of two. Don’t sell the pram, the time will come when you won’t be able to carry them, especially both, I know that you’re treasuring this so much now, and it’s beautiful xxx enjoy every moment, I am just LOVING all your captures. Stunning #livingarrows

    I love your photography and your twins are beautiful. I miss being able to hold my children in a sling, they are far to heavy to hold now.
