Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


My Firstborn - Mommy And Me Monday

I am rarely in the photos of my family. Usually I have to put the camera on timer and jump in front of it to be included. 
If I lived with my mom and sister, this would never happen, but they are in another country. 

This is me and my sweet boy when he was just a year old. Ahh those days. He is such a sweet and always happy boy. Yes he whines but sometimes I can't remember that he does :)

We went to Arizona to visit my hubs family. Two of his younger brothers were graduating. My son was also sharing a birth month with one of the brothers. I baked his cake and it was just nice being with family.

  1. Thanks for following me. I am now following you too.

  2. The only way I get pics of me and the kids is to stick my arm way out or set the timer - it all counts right?
    great pic of you and your little one!

  3. I'm the same way...rarely in family photos because I'm usually the one taking them. LOL I bet the cake was great....glad you had a good time!

  4. You are absolutely beautiful and have the most wonderful smile. Your son is adorable.

  14. What a cute photo!
    It is a pity that so many photos albums don't have any pictures of "mom"!

  15. I love your smiles! They beam right off the page. So glad you got behind the camera.

    :-) I need to do that more often too.

  16. I have very few photos of me with my children, I hated my picture taken. Now I try to get it taken with the grandsons, and one is too wiggily that it is almost impossible, LOL! You were one of my Winning Wednesday Wizards last week! be sure to stop this wednesday & collect the coveted Wizard badge (grin) I have linked up to you blog as well. I hope you come and play again. You and you son have beautiful smiles!
