I Heart Innocent Wonder

The theme over at I Heart Faces this week is “Innocent Wonder.”

This is a photo I recently took of my grandson, Kole, who is a wonder, himself.  Our little holiday baby – he was due last year on New Year’s Day, but decided to join us early on Thanksgiving Day. He is a determined little fellow, enduring the needle pokes and prods of the first week of his life in the NICU ( neonatal intensive care unit) with a toughness you wouldn’t expect out of a just-barely five-pound boy.

Nick-named “Little Bit”, he is a determined little fellow now, walking before his first birthday and enduring many bumps and bruises in his quest to explore, learn and grow.

I love him with a fierceness that I never thought would be possible. The moment I saw him, just minutes after his birth, his determined blue eyes, in his tiny face, looked straight into mine and I knew that this child was going to be someone incredibly special.

I love the way this photo captures his innocence and his wonderful “baby blues.”

I Heart This Face Best of All, Y’all

This week’s photo challenge on I Heart Faces is “Best Face Photo.” We are instructed to enter the face photo that we love the best that we took either in the month of December 2009 or in early January 2010. This is not the week to look through the archives for a favorite photo! They want something that is fresh and new and that shows off where we are in our photography journey right now.

Well, since my grandson, Kole, was born on Thanksgiving Day, I have not taken photos of any other faces but his! It was impossible to choose  one favorite, out of the 500 or more I have already taken, but this is one of the top ten. I’m sure y’all can see why I love taking his photo so much. Isn’t he just the cutest thing?
