a few things



  • My dear, sweet boy turns two years old tomorrow.  Can you believe it?  I feel like he was just born yesterday.  

I can't wait to show you Oscar's birthday present - it might be my favorite kid project yet.  It has taken me over 50 hours to draft, cut, and sew, and I'm about to drop dead of sleeplessness.  I was going to post about it today, but figured I should let the boy see it first.  So come back Monday!  (How's that for a tease?)
In the meantime ... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, OSCAR!

Oscar is still such a handsome little boy! He looks like a little model! Happy birthday Oscar!

I know this day has to be special for you also, because it is the day Oscar made you a mommy! We have two children, a boy and a girl, and my hubby makes sure to never forget that I gave birth to our two gifts!

Me: "It's Oscar's birthday tomorrow."
Elliot: "Oh! I want to go to it!"
Me: "Me too, but it is too far."
Elliot (sad): "Oh. Maybe we can take a taxi?"
I wish we could. We miss his face!

I can't wait to see what you made him...although I have a guess. I was just thinking today about a project you had mentioned pre-Ruby, and wondering if it ever came to fruition...Whatever it is, I have no doubt that it will be amazing!
