I ❤ Faces: Contemplative

This week's theme is "Contemplative". I am stealing the "contemplative" definition directly from the I ❤ Faces website:
Our Definition: thoughtful observation; full or deep consideration; dreamily or wistfully thoughtful: a pensive mood; expressing or revealing thoughtfulness; quiet modes of apparent or real thought; can be marked by some sadness, but doesn't have to be.

After watching this little episode on the Today Show, I thought that the newborn photos shown below would be PERFECT for this category:


Sadly, my sweet child is way too old for creating photos like the above video highlighted. Not to worry, though, I have tons of ideas for baby #2!



In the meantime, I'm going to settle for this shot of our little Monkey with her daddy in Washington Park, Oregon. They were both deep in thought...and trust me, it is a RARE moment for both of them to be still at the same time!



And...BONUS WEEK! We get to enter a non-judged pet photo. I ❤ my cats. Here is my first baby, Churchill, on our way home from Florida:




As always, make sure you head on over to I ❤ Faces for more Contemplative-themed and Pet photos. I'm sure you'll find tender, sweet, and slightly sad photos to ooo and ahhh over!
