I also wanted to share a truly inspirational story that has totally motivated me to continue putting myself in pictures with Paxton and any future children I have. I always grew up with both of my parents so I never knew how it would feel to grow up not having a mom or dad around. I can only imagine it would be very hard and I bet having pictures of yourself and said missing parent would be a comfort. So heaven forbid that ever happens to me, I would still want Paxton to have pics of me and him enjoying the things we do here. I heard about a cool challenge on a blog called 3 boys and 2 little ladies. so I'm going to try to keep up with all the other bloggers out there involved in this challenge. Basically it just challenges you to take pics of you and your kids together and post them on your blog. And I'm not just talking about dressed up fancy pics. You need to take the real pics of you not at your best (greasy hair, no makeup, trackpants mom) I'm not a shy person in fact I tend to love the spotlight so this shouldn't be too hard of a challenge for me. Here's hoping!
Here is a favourite pic of me and the little man! He was about 4 months old at the time!
