My Best

Date: February 6, 2013
Weight: 23.4 pounds
Height: 34.5 inches
Broken Toe :( Ouch!!!
Everyday I do my best. I do my best to be the best mom, the best employee, the best fiance, the best homemaker, the best person that I can possibly be. I think that is another consequence of being a parent, it causes you to reevaluate yourself and want to change your flaws. I want to be the best person I can be so that Aiden will have someone to look up to, someone to emulate,someone to be proud of.  Having a child has made me want to be a better person, it makes me want to make the world a better place for him. I have always been a positive person, and I want him to have that same mentality. I want my son to be able to look at the world and see the good, to be able to see the bad as learning opportunities and to always realize how blessed he is. I look at every day as an opportunity to show him that he is loved, and I am truly grateful for that opportunity. When the days get hard and people get on my last nerve, I think about the example that I want to be for my son and I act accordingly. I know that I will mess up and make loads of mistakes, but I will never stop trying to be the mom(and the person) my son deserves. Quick update on us this week: I broke my pinky toe and it hurts like heck, Aiden nearly bit through his tongue and I did not realize that a tongue could bleed so much, (He is doing better, and is actually the toughest person I know!), Dave is still recovering from a cough and exhaustion spell. So other than being put through the ringer physically, we are all doing pretty good. Even though our life is crazy and we hit bumps in the road, I am incredibly grateful and thankful for all that we have and I hope that I never take it for granted.

My Reason To Be Better :) LOVE this Kid!!

  1. I love that he is flexing his biceps with the popeye onsie on! :) Great shot and I hope all those little ailments heal up quickly. Especially, that pinky looks sore to touch.
