I am late with my entry to the gallery this week. I am not sure where the days are going but this is the first chance I have had to open the laptop all week. I am dead tired, weeks of bad nights are taking their toll and I am getting to the point where I just want to stand up and scream “It’s not fair” at the world. But as my step dad was so fond of saying as I grew up, life isn’t fair and when I was up for three hours last night I got to watch the last four Chilean miners rescued and it gave me a little perspective. Life could be a lot worse than this.
I thought this week’s gallery would be easy as I already picked my favourite photo when this was a meme flying around our blogs, but then I realised that The Gallery has always been about photos I have taken, and that one, although precious is of me, not by me.
So after a lot of thought I have picked this one. My heart skips a beat every time I see it. I know that I am biased but seriously, how cute? Anyway, it is my favourite photo that I have taken. It has such precious memories and will forever remind me of the joy of having a little baby. Piran is all boy these days, all traces of baby are disappearing faster than I can cope with and this reminds me of that wonderful time when he was small and cute and well, my gorgeous baby son. Who doesn’t love a baby in a hat!
