'Baby' - Illustration Friday
The topic this week at Illustration Friday is 'Baby'.
Flooded with ideas because the majority of my work is for babies, toddlers and children I was overwhelmed and at first I didn't know what to choose for my drawing.
Then earlier today this image popped into my head...it was fun to draw and it ended up looking a lot like my youngest child when he was a baby...a sweet faced chubby baby boy!
I should find a picture of him when he was an infant to compare the similarities.
Some days I find myself yearning for those days...that sweet baby smell, the baby soft skin and the absolute unconditional love! I miss it!!
Then...I wake up and come back to reality!! I realize that although I loved taking care of my three babies I'm glad I'm past that stage...babies and toddlers are way too much work for these '40 something' bones!!
See you next time!
