Help with this picture

I'm a real beginner, I don't know anything about editing. I love this picture and I would like to blow it up and have it framed but it's a bit blurry. My camera is really starting to crap out on me. i tried messing around with another copy of the picture. I managed to get a nice black vingette (sp?) around it and it looks really nice but I can't get it to look sharper. I'm not sure if it is even possible.

Here's the pic.
I don't know how to make it bigger from photobucket:

It's really hard to see from the tiny picture, but it looks pretty out of focus. Sometimes if it's just a little soft, some sharpening can help it. But in this case, I probably wouldn't blow it up and frame it. However if you like the picture, I would still print it small and put it in your house somewhere. :) A cute snapshot of your kid is still important, whether it's out of focus or not!
