B&W- The Gallery

This weeks Gallery over at Sticky Fingers is all about 'Black and White' this week.

Daddy and Son moment. Che Lennon, 4weeks old.

 Che was a bit of a miracle baby.
We never expected to have him.
When we were told we were expecting a boy, Drew went as white as a sheet!
We had always said it didn't matter, as long as the baby was healthy.
Deep down, secretly, I think we both wanted a son, after already having 3 beautiful daughters.
Che's sisters were beside themselves with excitement.

The pregnancy was complicated, painful and long. The birth, traumatic.
We thought we'd lost him for a while. But he was strong.

At 4 weeks old, Che Lennon, our much longed for son, produced his first ever smile.
Looking up at his besotted Daddy, there was no mistaking this moment for wind.

Each time I look at this photo I am reminded of how lucky we are to have such a wonderful, happy and content little boy. He is strong and healthy. And now, a whole year on, he is just as much of a miracle as he was the day he was born.


  1. What a gorgeous picture! Certainly looks like something has tickled Che's funny bone!

  2. The joy that's on both of their faces makes my heart melt. What an amazing photo!
