Nate's Portrait

Here is the portrait of Nate that my sister, Jessica, drew for us.

And here's a close-up so that you can see the detail.


I should have taken it out from behind the glass before I took the picture, so there's a reflection in the way a little bit. What do you think? Isn't it great? I have it up on the mantel and just can't stop looking at it. I love it so much, and particularly thankful for it after that Dear Abby letter today. Posted by Picasa

Oh Laura - he's gorgeous. I was noticing as I looked through your vacation pics that you and Nate share the same little upturned nose. Too cute. What a beautiful tribute to such a beautiful boy; she did a TEE-rific job.

Delurking here, your sister is very talented and it is a beautiful drawing of a gorgeous baby. I especially love his hair. I'm a sucker for a baby with hair.

They are truly beautiful.
I am trying to find someone in Australia who will do something like this for me.
Your sister is so clever and your angel is just beautiful!

What a beautiful baby boy. Thank you for posting the drawing and the photo. And thank you as well for your incredibly articulate response to Dear Abby. You expressed everything I was thinking.

Our sons have the same name, different languages. Your Nate was just as much of a gift and a giver as mine, it seems.
