Living Arrows

My youngest boy, Jacob is such a sensitive soul, which brings me to share this week Living arrows post. He shines in the darkness, he loves unconditionally, he makes sure you know you are loved, adored and he doesn’t mind wearing his heart ever so proudly on his little sleeve. 

He’s always been that way. A soft little soul with a heart of gold. A heart big enough to love everyone equally and I love how he doesn’t mind displaying his adoration and love for others. Especially his siblings. Especially his little sister, who he just…..fawns over. The past few days, Annabelle hasn’t been herself. With teething and a little cold getting her down, Jacob swooped into just….sit with her as she watched a little TV. 

As I watched them both I almost cried. Jacob was so gentle, loving, caring, his eyes screamed love for this little girl he can call his sister and it was a real pleasure to watch.

I even managed to capture a few moments they shared…

Cute right? This little guy kills me. Totally knocks my heart right out of the park. 

He is without a doubt, 100%, Mummys little old world Gent.

    That is so sweet, I love that you captured it in secret!!! Sibling love is so strong and amazing to feel I am so glad my two have each other as your two do. I can’t ever imagine just having one and them not ever feeling sibling support, protectiveness and love. This is so lovely. #livingarrows

    That is SO beautiful. What a lovely brother! I catch my middle one being like this with his sister too sometimes and it melts my heart – I think he forgets he’s not much more than two years older than her and treats her so carefully.
