It would be the first one for me.

IMO colored shots of kids are a dime a dozen so I will say go with B/W to make it more special and of the 2, I would pick the hoodie one BUT with dynamic range compressed to retain detail in the face (bruise removed) and also clone out the pole which is an easy venture.

I like #1 it has the most overall quality, but take out the red spot (bruise?) over his left eyebrow.
Enjoy the season!
I like the colored one with the hood, but his eyes better in the third one.
The first image, but remove the distracting elements - the light stripe behind the head & the band of white on the left.
#1 is my choice ..the others are a bit too close or a bit like a selfie. Merry Christmas!!!
Hi , br br In short, I would like to make a gift... (
I vote for the first color photo.

If you use #3 or #4, suggest you edit out the bokeh over his left ear. Very distracting.
I would do #4 with the blue eyes from #3! I tend to only have b&W prints on the walls. They are calming and fit in with any decor.
First one had the best smile and color rendition.
I'd go for the color in this case. The black and white images are a bit too gritty/contrasty for a baby. You could try a different approach - choose a softer black and white preset if you use Nik or Topaz.
