Such a Little Cutie

He was so cute, he had the sweetest little nose, and a little tuft of long hair right on his fontinelle. He had chubby cheeks and an earnest look in his eye. Some people could see it, some only saw the tubes, which I understand because the tubes looked really scary, there were so many of them.

But not in this picture.

I have just picked up this beautiful sketch of my super cute baby Thomas. I am thrilled with it, it looks just like him, and there are no tubes or tape stuck to his face.

An old friend of my family is a portrait artist. I went and saw her recently and this is the outcome. I am so happy with it. I want everyone to get a portrait done. The artist is Meredith Forster, she will do sketches by mail to anywhere in the world. Her email address is merrimart (at) dodo (dot) com (dot) au. Meredith was telling me she does all kinds of portraits but she feels her calling is to do portraits of babies who have died, she has a whole album of the ones she has done over the years, babies that have been born too early and some that were born sleeping, some babies and children that have been older too.

Thanks Meredith, thanks for putting so much love and care into his portrait.
