Nice to Meet You by rocamiadesign

This is Shaun and one of the twins. He asked me to take this. He was amazed at how tiny the baby’s hand is compared to his.

I’m entering this in the Partial challenge in the All About Your Best Work group.

The twins are getting bigger. Today (May 21) is their adjusted birthday, the day they were supposed to be born. They are both over six pounds now and almost ready for normal baby formula. For the past six weeks, they’ve had to eat a partially predigested formula, since premies have trouble with their digestive systems. The stuff smells awful, but they seem to like it.

I used color burn in Photoshop CS to eliminate distracting elements of the background.
