Congrats on your top 5 finish!
I will say again (with better spelling too) that precious moments in life are far more important than "pretty pictures".
This is a nicely captured time capsule and should be cherished.
Nicely done!

Tender and sweet. Excellent contrasts almost in the whole image. The boy's left eye and cheek looks a bit too white.

Blocky tonalities and blown out highlights hurt this very appealing candid.
