iheartfaces photo challenge: Innocent Wonder


This weeks photo challenge was innocent wonder. I kind of wished I could have used last weeks photo entry for this. But then I remembered this photo. This is Isaac when he was about 5 months old. Since he was born in December he hadn't been outside that much because it was just too cold. And whenever we were out for a walk or a drive he was fast asleep as soon as we hit the fresh air. This particular day my brother was visiting from America and it was unusually warm. So we laid him out on a blanket in the garden. When he looked around his eyes were wide as anything as he took in the blue sky, the trees, the grass and the flowers. For a baby there are so many first times. How precious that is. Thankfully photos allows us to capture those moments before we forget them because we are back to focusing on crying, naps and lack of sleep etc...

  4. so sweet!! You are so right - we sometimes forget about these moments when we are so caught up in the mom craziness. :)

  5. Agree with your observation 100%... we often get so caught up with chores and the mundane, we forget to pause and appreciate the little precious moments as our little ones wonder and grow day by day...
