View Full Version : My Tiny Head

Hey y'all I uploaded my tiny head. I had a hard time getting a clear image going from the original to a 60x60 pxl image. Any advice?

The pic was taken about 1.5 years ago. I don't actually look like that anymore (shorter hair) but the image says loads about me. My first and most important job is as a Mommy to my incredible boy, Adam. He is 18 months now. The picture was taken when he was about 1 week old. We had just gotten home from the hospital. Adam was born with a pulmonic stenosis (valve carrying blood to lungs would not open. He was taken by ambulance from our regional hospital to UNC-Chapel Hill where he underwent a balloon cath to open the valve. I had the wonderful privilege of getting up and walking out of the hospital the day after a c-sect. Long story- short...The procedure was a total success. We are going in tomorrow for his annual checkup with his cardiologist.
Don't know why I just blurted that all out.
Anyhow, Adam is my muse. He is the lovingest laugingest most wonderful thing ever.

Hi Amy,

I have no advice for you on the tiny head thing as I had the same problem! 60 x 60 pixels is pretty tiny, alright;)

18 months is a fantastic age ... I love toddlers. And babies. And preschoolers. Now teen-agers ... well, even they have some good points, at least some of the time. I'm glad to hear that Adam is doing so well after a scary start!

Oh Amy your tinyhead is awsome. I love mother-child art and this picture is like that to me. Thanks for sharing Adam's story. I am sorry you had to go through that with your first baby when he was first born. But I know you don't want pity. But I am still sorry to hear it. I am glad he is okay now... As I have shared before, I went through a serious situation with my son Zach in April, but he was my second child and age three before I had that bomb dropped on me! I just can't imagine what it would be like to go through that your first day as a mother... Good luck at the cardiologist visit!

Amy, I hope all goes well at the cardiologist. I love that pic, even though it is tiny. Enjoy the years while he's a little guy - they fly by at an amazing pace.

My oldest turned 11 yesterday. I am feeling old, old, old! I remember being 11 - doesn't seem THAT long ago, even if it's been 25 years!!
