It’s The Little Things 2/52: Linky Party

Welcome to week two of our It’s The Little Things Linky Party. Hosted by myself and the gorgeous Jodie from Dear Little Daisy, here’s where we take a few moments to reflect on all the little things that have made our week special. It’s so easy to take these little things for granted instead of appreciating them for how wonderful they really are. Each week we share our little moments from the past week, and invite you all to link up and share yours too.

Last Weeks Favourites

I loved Catherine from Mama Cat and Baby Bee‘s post last week. We’ve all been the fraught mama with our hands full of bags and children. Hopefully if we ever saw someone in that situation we’d also all be the kind lady who stopped to offer a little much needed help that afternoon.

Emily from Ella’s Abode has been having a rough time lately dealing with a teething babe, so it was lovely to read that things have been a bit better for her and Ella this week. Can you send your dad over to me once he’s done at yours Em?!

It’s The Little Things 2/52

Here’s my little things for this week:

  • Zoo trips in the winter – We’ve had season tickets for our local zoo for over a year now, so we usually go at least once a week and I had forgotten how lovely and peaceful it is in the winter. There’s nothing better then getting wrapped up warm in your hats and scarves, getting outside for some fresh air and enjoying the winter sunshine. Even better when the place is almost deserted and we can enjoy private train rides and have the park all to ourselves.
  • Watching Dilan become a little boy – I know it sounds silly to say, as he’s obviously always been a person, but he’s really started to become a proper little boy now. With thoughts and opinions and an attitude! He makes me laugh so much, and his vocabulary is so good now we can chat about most things which is really special. Sometimes I just stare at him while he talks, totally in awe of the person he’s becoming, it’s amazing to watch.
  • The kindness of others – My heart has been really warmed this week by the kindness shown to us by others. A few kind words or a small gesture can make all the difference to someone’s day as I’ve said many times before. It’s so important to me that Dil understands the importance of being kind and I’ve spent a lot of time teaching him this, so it’s lovely for him to see some kindness returned. We are so lucky to have such lovely people in our lives

    Love this. I completely get that same feeling when Lily sits and talks to me – I’m so in awe that she is seven now – she just talks like a grown up and I often do that thing where you just sit and stare at them as they talk – Lily will go on for hours if you don’t interrupt and I love hearing about the World though her eyes! #itsthelittlethingslinky

    it really is amazing to watch our babies turn into little people. I remember marvelling at our daughter’s interaction as a toddler and I still marvel at her now, of course! Thanks for hosting #itsthelittlethings

    I never even consider the zoo in the winter!

    I totally understand what you mean about watching Dilan grow, I sit in awe of Reuben and things he will chat about now. I regularly look at him and think he isn’t a baby any more he is a boy.

    I’ve never thought about going to the zoo in the winter, but we’re going to one in a few weeks time! I’m looking forward to getting all wrapped up! Beautiful photo of the little man. I know what you mean about just watching in awe of them and thinking how much they’ve grown. It’s amazing!
