As an eventful 2017 reaches its final days, it is important to pat ourselves on the back and celebrate the fact that we made it through the year. Equally important, however, is to take a step back and reflect on the good and the bad, and to be thankful for what you've received this year. Liam Payne is doing exactly that, and sharing it with all his fans this week.

The One Direction solo sensation posted a photo on Instagram cherishing his son Bear and girlfriend Cheryl Cole on Tuesday (December 26). He explained that this crazy year was filled with memories, and that he would post a memory everyday this week. The photo shows Payne and Bear in matching Yeezy sneakers.

Payne dedicated the first post to his son, with a heartfelt caption that read, "First has to be my baby boy Bear! Holding him for the first time is a memory I will never forget and watching him grow up is just amazing to see. @cherylofficial has been an incredible mother to baby Bear since the day he was born and I can’t thank her enough for that."
