If you could safely place a child into a rocket launcher and shoot him out into your home, that would be my nephew, Jaxson. One of my favorite games with him is when we go on a high speed chase throughout his grandparent's home because it indicates that I'm still in some kind of physical shape. He's fast, energetic, smart, bold and brave.
It was a Sunday morning in Miami, before my drive to the west coast of Florida when my sister came over with Jaxson to say goodbye before our trip. I had poor sleep the night before so when she reminded me that I had wanted to make pictures of my nephew, I groggily rose from the couch, grabbed my camera and went to work. His energy was contagious. I felt my vitality return and he and I had a lot of fun. I credit Jaxson's lingering energy for keeping me awake during my 3.5 hour ride to Palmetto.
Here he is. My little rocket launcher nephew.
