    I love both pictures, I can see why they would make you happy. I think your son looks like a little contented Buddha in that first one, very much at peace with himself and in the moment.

    Both look perfect to me because of what they perceive.

    I love them both. Joy portrayed through a child. Nothing better than that!

    The second one is perfect! Joy and freedom at the same time, what is there better than that??

    What is imperfect about them? I think they are both awesome. I especially like the one with Simon under the desk.

    I LOVE THOSE PICS!!! Yes, they're imperfect, but that's what makes them so darn lovable.
    Simon is sure growing. When you're an OLD mom like me (19 year old son with autism and MR) you will look back SO wistfully at these pictures.

    Too cute! Perfect example of it not being about photo quality but rather what's in the photo that makes us happy! I have a lot of imperfect photos in my collection!

    What makes them imperfect? I don't know much about photography but I'm sure you're like me and any picture of loved ones is perfect in every aspect...:)

    He is SUPER cute. I was wondering if I could ask you a question.... I want to dive into scrapbooking, & my mom is into the "Creative Memories" way of scrapbooking, but I wanted to know what you keep your pages in. What do you use for albums? Or are the all mini albums? I like the idea of mini albums I just want to make one that's solid & lasts a long time, but I'm just not sure how to go about it.. thought maybe you would have some suggestions. Thanks so much for inspiring me EVERYDAY! Love your clothes too by the way! & I loved how you were posting your outfits, very inspiring. Take care!

    Great Imperfect pictures. I like both. I take a ton of pictures, some are imperfect and I'd take them for creating layouts if those imperfect ones inspire me...

    i am the same way. i've taken enough photography classes (i have a bloody degree in it!) to know what a "good" picture is...and while i love it when i get a perfect shot...so often, it's the imperfect ones that i truly embrace. funny how that works, eh?

    Snapshots of life are so beautiful. I love 'em.
    Just a note... I don't normally watch ABC World News, but happened upon that channel while doing cardio tonight at the gym, and saw a really cool news article you might enjoy. The link won't paste to my comment, so here's the address for you to cut and paste yourself. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!! http://abcnews.go.com/Health/story?id=4311223&page=1
