iheartfaces "Best Face" Challenge


This week's challenge from the folks at iheartfaces is in honor of their first anniversary! The picture is meant to be what you consider your "best face" picture...with a catch. It has to be taken in December '09 or January '10-no searching archives for this one! I've taken LOTS of pictures over the holidays, but this one stood out:
Not only is baby J soooo cute, but he is the world's best baby. And not only is he the world's best baby, but older sister has a terminal genetic disorder, and has spend most of the past year in and out of hospitals for her bone marrow transplant. Through it all, baby J just snuggles and looks cute. I know he's a bright spot of normalcy in the lives of a precious family that has been through more than most people can even imagine. His sister is enamored with him, and so is anyone who looks into those eyes. This was taken on a cold, cold winter day-about 40 damp degrees-very atypical for sunny central FL. His sister is finally able to come out into public, and the family came to a post-church outdoor gathering for some church friends who were visiting from out of town. Cute little J just snuggled in his mamma's sling. The only sign he was cold was the pink tinge to his tiny nose.


Pin It!
