I am!

I sent in a photo to breastfeeding.com for their "photo contest" and just noticed that they posted it in the newest "photo album" here. I think it's the 6th photo down from the top (my DD's name is Margot, and she's now 9 (wow!) months old as of Oct 1st).

I had a lousy day today and finding out tonight that they published the photo really boosted my morale! Even though I know that the photo albums are just albums of probably nearly all photos sent in... I mean I know I didn't win the contest or anything...

But I'm SOOO thrilled all the same.... just had to share (& brag to someone other than DH)!

Thanks for putting up with my "shameless pat myself on the back thread"!

That is soo sweet!! I love it when my ds used to put his sweet little fat hands on both sides like that! *sighs* Now he's usually too busy tryin to kick his feet & pull my hair! :LOL

Obviously you have a beautiful baby, but the pic itself is wonderful -- so sweet! Now I'm going to have to go look through all the galleries & cry because it's all so beautiful (gee, I'm not hormonal!)

Thank you, thank you... DD's slimed down a bit since then (growing more in length and gaining a little less in weight) but still has her chubby legs & hands...

Oh, and Heavenly, don't be sad!!! I sent my picture in just over a month ago ... they probably just haven't gotten to yours yet.

That is a sweet photo. I remember those days, when their whole body is focussed on the task at hand.
