This weeks prompt by Tara at Sticky Fingers for The Gallery is to chose a photo I am proud of.
Hmmmm.....well this is a difficult task because I have different photos that I am proud of for different reasons. However, I am trying hard to just select one photo this week as most weeks I tend to display at least two!!
So I have decided to use a photograph which I am proud of due to who is featured in it (as if you couldn't guess lol).
But it is more than that, this was the first photo I took of Burton alone. (Up to this point the OH had taken all the photos, bar a couple I took of him holding Burton.) It was up on the ward about 5 hours after he was born. His daddy was asleep in the chair and I should have been sleeping myself but of course, despite being awake for well over 48 hours, I just couldn't. I wanted to take another look at my little baby boy who I had carried for the last 9 months, while there was no one else with me. This little bundle of joy who I had given birth to. I just wanted to take it all in really and think about how I felt to be his mummy. Wondering how I was going to cope now he was here and feeling a little scared. At this moment I still couldn't quite believe my luck that he was just so perfect, and healthy and gorgeous!
Therefore, although I have photos of other subjects that I am proud of and could have used this week, none of them encapsulate the feeling of pride I felt when I took this
and indeed still do feel every time I look at him :-)
