Turning Three...



Today was the day my small man turned 3.  It was a bittersweet occasion, as I imagine every birthday is to any mother who watches her baby grow up.  It was celebrated with gifts and cakes and a trip to the farm and of course a very special card.  As I mentioned in my last post, Kayne loves animals.  When asked what he wanted for his birthday he would rattle off a list of animal figurines he hoped to add to his collection.  And when I inquired as to what he would like on the card that Mommy would make for him he promptly replied " Um, maybe a cow."  And so my sweet small man got a sweet small cow on his birthday card!  This is Sweet Cow from A Day For Daisies.  Isn't he adorable?  I used the current sketch from the Sweet Sunday challenge (#167) as my layout and kept things pretty simple since it was for a child.  Just a wee tag and some glittered chipboard letters adorn my project. 


I was pretty pleased with the results and as you can see, someone else was too!  Mad scientist-bedhead-crazy morning hair and all!!!  :-)




He carried it around the house with him this morning until it was time for him to leave with his father for the day!  He just makes me melt into puddles sometimes!  I am watching him sleep on the couch next to me now.  I mean, it must have been utterly exhausting to watch me assemble the gazillion piece castle for three hours!  lol  I can't believe how he's grown these past three years!  Or how quickly the time has gone by.  Sometimes I just want to freeze it.  Just for a little bit.  Like when he wants to cuddle.  Or when he gets a boo boo and "kiss it better" turns into a giggly game of kisses and zerberts.  There are a million tiny moments I want to capture and hold, but they all seem to slip away, leaving happy memories and smiles, with a wisp of melancholy.   No matter how big he gets, he will always be my baby.  (And to which he responds "I not a baby!  I'm a boy!"  lol)  Happy 3rd Birthday, Kayne!  Mommy loves you!

I am off to make cookie pops so that he can celebrate for one more day at day care tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by and sharing this special day with us!
