Your hand in mine... by jkiner Your hand in mine... by jkiner
Nothing validates your decision to be a father more than the pure affection of a child...

Everytime I feel that small hand wrap around my thumb, my world melts...

To know that their world is made up of you and the influences that you bring to it... it just takes your breath away...

All I can do is close my eyes, rub my cheek against your soft skin and whisper, "This is the way I want to remember you..."

This is a blurb of emotion passed down from a father to anyone who appreciates...

Models: Baby Ella and Me

Enjoy!!!

You've really touched me. Your view of the world is so inspiring and surrounded
with positive energy. My fondest memories of my girls were moments like this.
I pity the fathers who left all the feeding, changing, and bathing to the mothers,
for they have no idea what they missed. I hope you seize these opportunities,
because they don't last long.....but the memories last forever.

Thanks for making me cry :( My son's 6 months now and I remember when he was born I kept telling him to stay a newborn forever. Now he's crawling and it's fun, but I miss my teeny tiny.

I am assuming this is you and your baby?...

It is me and my then small baby... She is now almost two... I like this because it reminds me of those moments... Time marches on... Only our memories comfort us...

wow what a closeup, its so touching, its incredible how a picture can tell a thousand words, i send a big hug to your sweet baby Ella and to you as well, i believe that for every picture you take you put a lot of emotion into it, that's what makes it different and special.

Definatly. I just got mine last week ( its actually the D70s model, but basically the same ;p )
The macro is pretty good, although not as good as my Olympus 8080, thats why i keep it :)
