Paxton - 16 Weeks

Paxton 15 lbs!
I'm supposed to be blogging about my new business venture, Halloween 2013, and recent mommy drama. But today I took a few photos of Paxton, and darn, if he isn't pretty cute. So I decided to blog some adorable pictures instead.

I'll have those other posts up shortly...and by shortly, I mean by 2014.
Baby Paxton
This kid is such an easy smile.
Always smiling Paxton!
In fact, it's SO easy to get him to smile that I'm half-tempted to get him into baby modeling. Not because I'm a stage mom--I know enough about the business to think actually my kid is the best--but just because he's such a smiley guy!

Then again--and this has happened with all three kids--sometimes I look back at photos and think, "Huh...I thought this photo was SO cute of him/her at the time and now he/she looks like a strange scrawny little thing." Justin and I still joke about the "adorable" Christmas photo of Eisley back in 2008. So cute! Only we've since realized that she looked exactly like Uncle Fester in a red velvet dress.

So, you know, you always think your kid is the cutest. My Paxton does take a good photo, although we do get our bad shots:

Baby model? Maybe...

Every baby is the apple of his mother's eye.

Keep me as the apple of your eye; 
 hide me in the shadow of your wings.

  1. Oh my goodness, Heather! He is still looking like a mini Violet to me, but in a handsome boy way. I cannot believe how smiley that sweet boy is! You have every right to brag and be a proud mama! You should totally get him into modeling! If it doesn't work out, at least you will have some great professional shots of him. Although it would be really hard to beat the ones of him on the scale. What a great idea!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend...


  2. Oh my what a JOY to find your blog, I'm hooked! I'm a PYREX lover too. mostly PINK! I don't have a blog...YET, but I so enjoy following good ones. You are a treasure and what a precious family you have.
    Do you have a blog that shows a tour of the inside of your home? Blessings!

  3. I still can't believe you had a boy. An adorable one though.


What do you have to say for yourself?
