Living Arrows 2/52: The toddler that sleeps in a teepee

Toddler sleeping in a teepee

I’ve remembered to link up with week two of Living Arrows … yay! In case you missed last week’s post, the aim is to share a couple of photos from the past week that capture a moment of childhood.

I did intend to have some sort of theme to these posts, and planned to share a photo each of the boys taken on the same day. Well the best laid plans go to waste, and that didn’t make it past week one. The only connection I can make between this week’s photos is that they were all taken at home.

For the past couple of months Santi has had a thing about not sleeping in his bed. He just refuses to, and has been sleeping on the floor instead. He must be comfortable down there or he’d go back to his bed, but it is a bit sad walking past his room and seeing him curled up on the carpet. After Christmas we decided to move his teepee out of the playroom to make a bit of space, and asked if he’d like to sleep in there instead. We’ve moved his mattress in there and it’s now his new bed! It does look super cosy and he loves it.

I lie in there with him for his bedtime story and it’s so comfy and warm that I’ve fallen asleep most nights! I’m not sure what we’re going to do with his bed though … it’s just sitting there with no mattress on.

He’s in there somewhere…

For Ezra I’ve chosen two photos that just show how much he’s changed recently. There’s something about seeing in his high chair that makes him look older than his seven months. He’s really content to sit there while we eat, pinching bits of our food to nibble on, and enjoys nosing around the room.Seven month old in a high chair

Weaning is a bit up and down at the moment. Some days he’ll eat loads, but other times he’ll refuse a pouch (we’ve been relying on a lot of ready made food while the kitchen is being done). He’s a big fan of cucumber and broccoli, and has very stubborn moments where he refuses the spoon. I think we’ll end up going down the baby-led weaning route, which we haven’t tried before.

    My daughter has a teepee that we haven’t tried out yet – soon perhaps I think!
    Ezra is a couple of months younger than my daughter Daisy, I’m so aware of how fast they change! Lovely photographs!

    He is a cutie. I love his outfit. Both my kids sleep in our bed. It can be a nightmare sometimes. I don’t have much space so for that reason we share nights and one of us gets to sleep in the guest room. #livingarrows

    Oh wow, Ezra is just such a proper little boy isn’t he? Look at his happy, cheeky face! I love that Santi is sleeping in a teepee, that is both cute and awesome! Don’t worry about the bed for now, as long as he’s happy x

    Love that Santi prefers to sleep in his teepee. Amelia went through the same phase a while back and would refuse to sleep in her bed for weeks! hopefully he’ll grow out of it and the bed wont be a waste of space. How cute are those photos of Ezra! #LivingArrows
