I am so excited, this was my first month to enter and this photo (and baby boy) mean so much to me. I was honored to be chosen as a finalist in the love themed contest.I would appreciate your votes, but I realize there are a lot of really beautiful photos that I have as competition.Here is a link, http://www.greeblemonkey.com/2009/02/february-greeblepix-finalists.html And here is our story, This is Charlie. He is 7 weeks old and has already been through so much in his short amount of time here on Earth. He was born with a heart defect that showed up two days after I gave birth to him. He was life-flighted to Children's Mercy Hospital where he underwent open heart surgery on New Year's Eve and was diagnosed with DiGeorge Syndrome. He has fought back from the depths of darkness, and is now thriving here at home. He's a strong little guy, with a scar down his chest to prove it. The love we have for him and the love he shows us everyday is infinite.I entered this photo in the GreebleMonkey's February Photo Contest, themed "Love",www.greeblemonkey.com/
If I were to win, the prize is a $250 gift certificate to Pro Rental where I could rent out a few lenses that I have been considering investing in, as I delve into the wedding photography business with one of my dear photographer friends. Being able to have a chance to try out a lens or two first would be a real help, and this would enable me to do so.
Here is my photo, and my name on the ballot is Megan - Trees and Bees Photog.
On another note, today is Charlie's big vaccination day. Remember the first round of vaccinations where they stick them at least 4 times?! Yes, that is what we face this afternoon.
