I Heart Faces~Wonder


I recently discovered an awesome photography website called I Heart Faces. They give you a weekly theme, and then you enter your photo for the theme of that week.

This weeks theme is wonder.

Whenever I think of wonder, this photo automatically comes to mind. This is Rhett and Andy back in February of 2007, when Rhett had a horrible accident at the hospital. Before this photo was taken he had not woken up for nearly a week, and we were afraid of brain damage from lack of oxygen when he went into cardiac and respiratory arrest.

We weren't sure if we would ever see the sparkle in Rhett's eyes again. However on this day, (Super Bowl Sunday to be exact) Rhett woke up. Andy nearly crawled in Rhett's crib with him, and said "Hey Buddy!"

The wonder in Rhett's face as he looked into daddy's eyes recognized his face was absoutley amazing. It was a day that I will never forget.

This little face is the true meaning of wonder to me.

  3. That brought tears to my eyes! What a great photo. I think you could enter it into both kids and the adult category. The wonder is evident on both sides.
