Five years ago today, I became a mother. It was the happiest day of my entire life! I have been teary all day. I can't believe my baby is five. Everyone says the time flies by. Boy, does it.
He had an exciting morning. He woke up to a new bike - his first two wheeler! (He wouldn't give up that tricycle forever!). Fran decided he needed a scooter, too. So he got a Razor. Both of them had balloons tied to them and he was thrilled to see them as he walked into the living room. He rode the bike from the living room, throught the kitchen and into the dining room several times. We went outside in our PJs, too. He's such a happy camper. Today we'll have lunch at Burger King with Fran and dinner at Perkins with my mom. Can you tell he picked the places??? Yes, he's spoiled, but that's what happens when you have two parents who adore you. I figure if I'm good to him now, he'll be sure to visit me in the nursing home one day. ;)
Here are a couple of old layouts. They are the first two that I did when I started scrapping his albums four years ago. They certainly aren't fancy or trendy, but I have looked at them over and over again. They are what scrapping is all about.
Here is a 2 pager of me exactly 5 years ago today. I started getting teary eyed as I looked at this one again. Seeing my dad there breaks my heart. He loved Ryan to death and would have been just thrilled to be with him as he turns 5. Twenty months was just too short of a time to have them together....
This one was a lift. I wish I could remember who did the original, but my 40+ year old brain doesn't work so well anymore. :) The layout highlights our birth announcement. I love the photo of him. He was 2 weeks old.
So, that's my walk down memory lane.
Here is one I did this week. I've scrapped the photos before, but I just love them. I used lots of Pink Paislee and Queen and Company on here. The quote pretty much sums up motherhood. Our angels are never out of our thoughts.....
Well, enough sappiness for one day. ;) I'm off to bake cupcakes. We'll be taking them into school and I'm going to spend some time with him there.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
