Gavin's 1st Birthday
Monkey Theme
So since my son's first birthday I have been making custom made birthday banners.  I don't know what it is about them.  They don't save me money or time, but I feel great pride when I hang it up and can say, "I did that".  

Gavin's 2nd Birthday
"How to Train a Dragon" Theme

Gavin's 3rd Birthday
"Cars" Theme

This year my baby girl is turning 1.  Where did time go??? It doesn't seem like my little 6 lb. 6oz. bundle should be that old.It actually brings a tear to my eye and a lump in my throat.
Norah only 1 day old!  Now she is going to be 365 days old!?

Norah's 1st Birthday Invites
  We are doing an owl theme.  I am not done with her banner yet, but I have to say it is ADORABLE!   I also made her birthday invitations and a tutu.  I think invitations are going to be a 1st birthday only thing.  Store bought from now on!  30 invitations are just too many.  I even considered making just one, taking a picture of it, and inviting every one via Facebook, but then thought better of it.

Now that I am typing about all of the things I am making for her birthday I think I am going to have to do a whole separate birthday post.  I hope you guys are ok with that.  I love my babies and I love showing them off in all of their cuteness.  So stayed tuned for that post in the middle of June!
Gavin loves being a big brother!
We thought it would be quite the opposite, but as always he surprised us!

I was also asked by two of my co-workers to make banners for their children's 1st birthday's too.  I was very pleased with them, so that is actually what precipitated this post.  I would love to start doing this on the side in my free time.  If only I had some of that!  Maybe this summer...

  2. Thanks! I do try to enjoy every moment, but then they are another year older and I wonder where time went. My baby girl is one today and I am a little emotional about it! :(
