Happy Birthday To My Sweet Boy Will.....
I remember when I brought him home from the hospital he was such a little peanut. He weighed just under 5 pounds, but they let me bring him home anyway because I was a nurse. I had to feed him with a little medicine cup because he didn't have a sucking reflex yet.
Today he is TALL and skinny and all boy! We will celebrate the day with a party at Laser Web and play laser tag with family and friends. When he was little, I always made him the fancy Wilton cakes with all of the little icing stars. For the past couple of years he has just wanted a regular cake, but this year he asked if I could make two cakes...one in the shape of a football and one in the shape of a baseball. ABSOLUTELY!
I see him starting to change so much. He is not a little boy and wants to do "big boy" things, but still finds comfort in some of the "little boy" stuff too.
Below you will find the card I made him for his 10th birthday. After I made it, I thought maybe it was too babyish for a 10 year old. Now I am thinking it is just right. I probably won't be able to make him a card like this ever again. He will be in Middle School next year, and I am sure this card wouldn't fly. Not "cool" enough, but for now it is just right for my boy.
The Stamps Of Life for this card, along with some Crate Paper, burlap string, and a vintage button.
This card is for this week's Wee Memories challenge-something adorable. I think this fits as adorable for a boy, don't you?
Thanks for stopping by today,
