Since Maxwell turned ONE, I have been trying to figure out how I am going to document him going forward, so I have decided upon the 52 Week Challenge. The "Mommy & Me" sessions will continue, but on a less frequent basis because he's not changing quite as quickly. With this project I want to challenge my creativity a bit, but also document real life, the tears, the smiles, the messy eating, cuddles, puppy kisses, and the list goes on. So this year, and hopefully years to come, I will take one picture a week...well, I will post one picture a week because let's be real, I'll be taking way more than one picture. This week teething is dominating our life. Mother Nature's got jokes. Just when we were both sleeping through the night and I was remembering just how much I LOVE SLEEP and how much I truly missed sleep, she threw us a curve ball...TEETHING. We were up EIGHT times last night...let me repeat that...EIGHT TIMES. Good Lord I am tired today, but instead of being a grouch, I got up, made myself a cup of glorious, life-saving coffee, and handed the kid a carrot. He was content and I was soaking in the joys of caffeine! Then it dawned on me that it was the perfect time to snap a couple pictures. This week the smiles are less frequent, the tears are common, and the cuddles are abundant. Without further ado, I present to you week one...Teething Is for the Birds!
