Eight years ago today, my little guy came into my life. Being a mother has been the best thing I've ever done! I remember when I was pregnant, I could see myself with an infant, but I didn't imagine myself with a school aged kid. Well, here we are! He's getting so big, so fast. Everyone tells you how fast it goes, and it does. I try to cherish every step and stage along the way. He carries my heart with him wherever he goes.
I love this picture of him that I took recently. He looks so grown up in it. I still see glimpses of my little one in the roundness of the tip of his nose, and his cheeks, but so many things are changing so quickly. He has a personality, likes, dislikes and dreams all his own. Just as when I was pregnant, I can't imagine myself with a teen or grown son, but I know all too well that I'll find out before I know it.
I used papers from Webster's Ladies and Gents and Country Estate lines. I've been so hooked on grey lately and it was the perfect backdrop for the papers. I used a Doily Thread, Fabric Ticket and a bunch of whimsies on here, too.
So, that's all for today. We've been celebrating and eating lots of treats. Time for some more.
Thanks for stopping by!
