Wonder Boy

Today's theme at i Heart faces is called 'Innocent Wonder.' The moment I read the theme, I knew I had to dig up this old photo.

This is my little prince at the tender age of two. I see this photo and my heart just turns to a puddle of mush. This stage of his life was quite the roller coaster to observe. Words were hard to come by. And frustration often ruled the day. But at the same time, you could just SEE all of the gears turning in his mind. Each day he learned something new, he had a fresh experience, he turned another corner.

When I think back on this time, I don't dwell on the lack of sleep. I don't linger on the learning curve of communication. What always comes to mind is the exploration, the discoveries, and the pure, unadulterated, ever-present wonder.

Thank you Wonder Boy. Thank you for all that you keep in my heart, my mind, my memories and for keeping Wonder an integral part of our lives yesterday, today, and every day that is yet to come.

Now ... don't forget to hop on over to and see the rest of the Innocent Wonder submissions!

PRECIOUS! This one made my heart MELT! I can't believe how little he was!

About This Blog

I'm a proud mom of a very active little boy. I have truly enjoyed the opportunity to document the many milestones throughout his life so far. These moments are precious to me. So I grabbed a camera and snapped away. I dabbled a bit in scrapbooking and took some time to learn at least the basics of photography. After all, kids grow so fast and you can't turn back the time.

But as he got old enough for school and team sports, I was so very disappointed in the offerings out there. I'm proud of my All Star in every thing he pours his heart into!

So I picked up a copy of Photoshop and tried my best to create momentos to capture these memories.

I'd love a chance to help you stop time for a moment as well.
