Ellen over at Love That Max is hosting a blog carnival where we share a favorite photo of our child. Go check out all the cute kiddos!
I honestly don't have a favorite photo of Elijah. If you haven't noticed, I have taken a lot of pictures of our little boy over the last 3+ years.
This is one of my favorites...
Taken at our dinner table, Elijah was 7 months old in this picture. That night we were having tortellini and Elijah could not stop giggling. He wasn't eating pasta at that age, of course, but he thought the word tortellini sounded hilarious.
Oh, the toothless grin, the rosy cheeks that were surely a sign of his food allergies, the hair standing straight up, the drool and spit-up soaked shirt, the dimples, his head ridge that I blissfully tried to ignore, his perfect little eyebrows - it's all an accurate representation of a happy night. Our lives back then were constantly filled with worry about what Elijah's future would hold, but on nights such as this we knew (one way or another) everything was going to be all right.
Time and perspective tells me that things are all right. We're one happy tortellini family - except we can't eat tortellini. ;) No worries - we still giggle at the dinner table.
