#NaPhoPoMo 2013 Last Day: Look for the light

#Naphopomo is officially over and although I started a little late I'm proud of myself for posting 27 straight days.

#NaPhoPoMo 2013 Day 25: 10 months

It is hard to believe today he is 10 months, just 2 months shy away from being 1 year. I remember the days when I could take a photo with that zebra to show his growth from month to month.

Today was one of those days the weather fits the mood- cold, rainy and gloomy. There have been a few clouds that have made the last few days a bit of a struggle for me.

#NaPhoPoMo 2013, Day 20: My kid has the best smile

My kid does have a great smile and I cannot get enough of it. I love how he giggles at random sounds and silly faces. I love that he thinks I'm funny and gets super excited when he sees me dance like a crazy person. I love how his eyes light up as soon as … Continue reading #NaPhoPoMo 2013, Day 20: My kid has the best smile
