Contest Submission #7: Bella

"This is one of those picture that really truly gives the saying " a picture is worth 1000 words" some real meaning. Bella was almost a year and had just started walking but when I look at this picture I had that same sense of "YES...I did it..I survived the first year with 2 kids!" Any parent knows (no matter the age difference...) what a challenge and a relief it is to have done so. I loved this photo so much that when I mentioned it to you how great it would be on the front of a greeting card you were so kind enough to make me some!!! I still have them and give them to friends who have babies!

The words "YES" could be on a greeting card and the picture would match the word perfectly.

A co-worker led me to this site hoping I would vote for her child's picture, but sorry this one stole my heart. I love it! I can sense the moment of triumph when the little girl is finally standing on her own two feet. All is right in the world.
