absolute wonder

Every time I meet a new baby, I think about what a miracle they are.  I remember reading a weekly email that told us what was developing at what time, and the size compared to a fruit or vegetable.

Yesterday was no different.  I met Cadence, who's due date was today.  So absolutely perfect.  So much reddish hair, like his Momma.  All his little fingers and toes.  And I feel blessed to have been there to capture him at this age.  Because before we know it, he'll be running around with the rest of the cousins at a family function.

Before:

I honestly felt it just needed a little color pop, so I ran PTM's Wonder Quickie.  (Image not shown)
But when I had the images side by side there was so little difference that I decided to do a b/w edit for this challenge.

After:

I'm in love with PTM's Grace B/W.  LOVE!
