I know that pictures are precious. This one is to me. In February 2008 when my youngest was 6 weeks, I had Dre, a photographer and owner of Open Shade Studios come to our home and take our family portraits. Dre captured this shot of me in the nursery holding Connor after I had just fed him.

I love this picture because when I look at it I can remember what it was like to sit in that room, tired but happy, as I held my baby and rocked him back to sleep. I can remember peeking over their crib to check that they were still sleeping and pausing to stare awhile. I can picture every detail of that room that we created in excited anticipation of the birth of our first born.
