I completed the rest...

Yes, it's been weighing on my mind for months to do this: unfinished business is never a good thing, and this was definitely unfinished business. Now it's done though, and I am pleased with what we have here...color photographs of our beautiful baby. Eleven more of them.

I would like to share her with you now. Here she is...












The more I look, the more I realize it wasn't all my imagination: she really was an undeniably beautiful little girl...

Oh my goodness, these photos are so honest and so beautiful. I'm crying for your beautiful baby girl.

Certainly not your imagination - you made a truly beautiful baby. The heartbreak is so raw in your face. So hard - but so brave of you to do this.

Hi
She is absolutely beautiful.
I would like to send you an email, is this possible here? I wanted to make a suggestion for you personally that might help.

Jay - this must have been hard and therapeutic. *hugs* You're right - she's gorgeous. I love her big ol' cheeks and those adorable lips. *hugs*

Jay said...

Yes, doesn't she have chubby cheeks and the most amazing lips! Her daddy and I both have quite prominent lips and I guess this is the result! Hopefully we'll get another 3D ultrasound this time in a couple of months, and we'll see if Isobella has the same thing going on! I love all of you! XXX

Jay, I'm struck, reading this, by both her beauty and your palpable grief. It is bittersweet to witness these photographs - only the smallest fraction, I'm sure, of what you are feeling. I'm glad you could finish this project and honored that you'd share it with the blogosphere.

Jay said...

You're totally welcome. Our children are our children. That's why I retouch for others as well. We need to show our children off because they're our babies and we love them... :)

she is absolutely lovely. All of the shots are wonderful, but I love the one of her at the end the best. Her little sweet mouth squnched up like she's just asleep and about to wake up at any minute. Oh mama, hugs that she is not still in your arms.
