this week’s theme is brave and is the perfect adjective to describe this little guy of mine! this past tuesday marked a monumental day in our books! lets just say the dentist and my son haven’t been the best of friends over the past four years. we have struggled and struggled at every 6 month appointment to the point where my poor child would get so worked up and cry hysterically and get himself so physically sick that i myself couldn’t stomach seeing him get this way. so i recently started making his check-ups around my husbands work schedule so he could be with me to help our baby try and overcome this fear he has.
i decided to bring along my camera on this visit to hopefully document his true emotions and to be able to pull these images out again to show him his pure bravery when needed. as you can see from the moment we pulled up to the dentist office his nerves were in full force and by the last couple pictures, there he is, full on getting his teeth cleaned (he had to be sitting up, wouldn’t lay down, but who cares), there he was without mom and dad having to be right beside him and NO cavities. seriously, proudest mommy moment to date, this 30th day of august, 2011!
now lets head over to my very talented friend meghan boyer, maryland lifestyle photographer and see her interpretation of what brave is to her for this week’s theme.
have a happy and safe labor day weekend!
