"A portrait of my boy, once a week, every week, in 2014."

Samuel - chilling out after a glorious swim

Another scorcher of a week has passed, and we are feeling incredibly thankful for swimming pools and air conditioning. It's amazing how much this boy motivates me to step outside of my comfort zone as well as my laziness. This week, I have been working hard on my website for my photography business, the one that I've been planning on starting up for the last, oh, ten (or so) years! I had become the queen of procrastination, but having this wonderful boy has made me realise that I can't sit at home and be fearful when it comes to my dreams, I can't leave that legacy for him. I need to show him that if he's passionate about something, and he's willing to work really hard, he can reach his goals. Gosh, I want him to know that he is capable of great things, I would hate for him to miss out of fulfilling his purpose because I was too scared to work towards mine.
Speaking of goals, Samuel is getting closer and closer to crawling. If he sees a laptop cord or a receipt happily discarded on the floor, he will roll, grunt and kick his way there in a blink of an eye; and I've learned to be quick to pry them out of his chubby little fingers before they end up getting chewed to pieces on those little teething gums. 

Linking up with Jodi's 52 project.
