Mommy Goggles

Mommy Goggles (noun or adjective): When used as an adjective, the word describes a photograph that is technically imperfect but nonetheless cherished by the mother of the photograph's subject, who, under the influence of the mommy goggles (noun) convinces herself that it is a far better photograph than it actually is.

Yes, this is a total mommy goggles shot (in addition to being really old), but I just rediscovered it and I love it. My baby looks like such a baby here, whereas now he is a rapidly stretching two-and-a-half year old, who says things like "No, I don't want to eat peas" and "Hey guys, you want to sit next to me?" Luckily, his gigi (the white blanket) is still a must-have item.
