My First: Embrace the Camera

One of my dear friends started an embrace the camera every Thursday on her blog...check it out It's such a cute idea, here's what she wrote about it.....                    
do you have pictures of yourself, with your little people?

in this day and age of the "momarazzi", many of us are always behind the lens...rather in front of it.
some of you feel much more comfy behind the lens, and i get that.
look, you think i want pictures of myself in the same velour jogging suit for the 3rd day in a row {i slept in that jogging suit each night too---i know, gross, right?}
well, i don't really want those pictures...but my kids do---or, at least they will one day.
how many of you LOVE looking at pictures of your parents, when they were young{er}?
i'm raising my hand!
sadly, i don't have a lot of pictures with me and my mom from when i was younger.
i am off to change this for my kids.
i want them to have an abundance of remind them of these days that we spent at home together.
the days may seem to drag...but honestly, the years fly.
is my son really about to graduate...from kindergarten?
wasn't it yesterday that i was wiping his diapered bottom?  and now i am wiping his pee up from all around the toilet. embrace the pee.
and embrace the camera.

This is my first embrace the camera with my sweet Parker. I just can't tell you how helpful, respectful and loving he is. This past month has been challenging for me but it never fails, Parker is right there being so supportive. He will just fill up my water bottle without me even asking him too, he loves to say "I love you mommy" all the time, I ask him to do something and he almost always says"ok mommy" so cheerfully. He's truly a lover not a fighter kind of boy. He will jump on any opportunity to cuddle up with you on the couch. 
I'm so proud of him and the little person he's becoming.
Plus he's just so darn cute and handsome too.
