This Little Piggy....


I really try and post something that reflects my hometown each and every day , but sometimes you take a photograph that doesn't quite fit but just begs to be shared.  Yesterday, I had the privilege of photographing one of Birmingham's newest citizens, the precious son of some dear friends.  He is a blessing in the lives of his family and everyone who shares this special time with them.  For your viewing pleasure...... Luke's tiny toes.

A baby is a heavenly gift ... Look at those toes ... how wonderful life is.

Bless him on the day he's born, bless him all his life. May he become a gift to all human kinds.

V, allow me to invite you today to the Celebration of our independence day.

Luke is someone's precious gift and your tribute to him is wonderful. I'm glad that this is the first photo that I opened this morning!

The first thing new parents do is check for 10 fingers and 10 toes. Luke has beautiful toes and I can just imagine his parents admiring him as you photographed him. lovely.

Cute little feet and toes.
God Bless the baby.
Someone should take baby's golden footprints and gift it to the parents. I had seen such a kit at Gleneagles Hospital in Singapore 2 years back, where my sister in law delivered a baby boy.

I can just smell those cute baby feet from over the internet. How is it that babies naturally smell so good?

A "sepia moment" in time and appropriately so. Timeless.

This is a classic beauty. Nothing is more wonderful that those sweet little toes. I so enjoy your comments on Laurie's blog. I really love your zinnias on the front page of your home blog.

Kisses to those feet from Aunt Jutilda.
