I ♥ Faces: Silhouettes

This week's theme at http://www.iheartfaces.com/ is Silhouettes. I knew immediately what picture I would take, but I wasn't confident I could pull it off--and while it's not museum quality, this picture still turned out sweet to me. Clayton is obsessed with watching for Daddy at the window (or whoever else happens to be coming by for that matter!). As soon as he gets home from school, he starts begging to sit by the window--he doesn't care how long it takes for Daddy to get home, he wants to be watching when the truck pulls in. And for entertainment, as soon as he gets to the window I hear "I NEED MY MUSIC!" So the iTunes come on and he just sits, sings, and watches all that's going on outside! (Oh, and if I give him the choice of actually sitting outside and watching from the porch, he'd rather sit at the window!!)
There are more great entries at I ♥ Faces, so go over and check them out!

Nothing's better than a sweet story to go along with a sweet photo. I like the black and white.

my kids are always at the window, whether it's the front window looking for daddy or the back window watching the rain, i have so many pictures of them at the windows (and subsequently at the curtains, which have fallen more than once!)
