BLOGTOBER | Favorite photo posted on Instagram

Woohooooo!  It's the weekend!  Oh wait, I'm a stay-at-home mom.... hmmm.  Yayy, my husband is off so I have help!!!  haha!  Just kidding!  It's been a bit of a tough week.  Paige has decided that she no longer wants to take her super amazing 2 hour naps in the middle of the day anymore.  I could cry.  Maybe I'm delirious...?  Her nap time is usually when I accomplish things or just have some quiet "me" time.  I'm going to blame teething...just to make myself feel better and give myself a little hope that one day the amazing 2 hour nap will return.  Please?  I miss you...

Anyway,....  Today is day #4 of the Blogtober Challenge, and today's prompt is: What is your favorite photo you posted on Instagram?
I picked the first photo I ever got to take of my little girl, Paige.  I know, I know, I just spent the whole beginning of this post grumping about the whole no-nap situation, but I can't even begin to explain the feeling you get when they hand you your little one for the very first time.  I felt like I was watching it in the third person as everything was happening but as soon as they gave her to me, the most intense feeling of joy and pride overcame me.

She's already over a year and a half old and sometimes she can be a little terror. haha!  But other times just the way she looks at me makes my heart jump.  Love my crazy little kiddo <3

    Now look at this happy little pumpkin :) So adorable. Does she look more like your hubs or you? I can tell she still has blue eyes, which might probably still change.
