Before first breath.

By Adam_H
This pic was taken 4 years ago at the birth of my little boy Xander.This image is not as clear as the one of his sister, but gives me a lump in my throat when i see it as i do with the other one.
He was an emergency C/section due to failure to progerss past 5cm's. he's a diffeerent colour to his sister we think because my wifes water had been broken some 14 hours earlier. Plus he had not taken his first breath yet. He opened his mouth a few seconds afer i took the shot, then the cry's came. Hope you all enjoy looking at this and his sisters pics.
Cheers Adam.
