Hi everyone! Today is just going to be a fun day and a more personal post! My sweet oldest daughter is F-I-V-E years old today! WOW does time fly! I remember the day we left the hospital, we had 3 days of wonderful nurse assistance thanks to her being a complete breech C-section delivery. I was freaking out that they were just letting us leave the hospital with this precious baby, no questions asked. I could barely walk and the hubs looked like a deer in headlights, we were quite the motley crew picture of new parenthood. I was terrified driving home and walking into the house and wondering what do I do next? I was a person that could not keep a plant alive so how in the world was I going to care for a baby! That feeling did not last long and I settled into motherhood like it was what I was suppose to do my whole life thanks to a great hubs, some great friends, and a wonderful pediatrician that all passed along great advise, tools and common sense to the whole baby situation. And believe it or not, I now can keep plants alive… kids do make you a better person all the way around!
Five years ago today, my little ray of sunshine made us a family and even though she looks just like the hubs, she is 100% my personality. She even loves to craft and knows what washi tape is! Love that kid!
For her birthday, we took her to Build-A-Bear Workshop along with her gaggle of sweet and very well behaved buddies. Since they don’t allow cupcakes or cake, I had a friend suggest Teddy Grahams! Brilliant idea. So I literally threw together these goodie bags using my Cricut Mini Monogram cart, Close To my Heart circle stamp, My Pink Stamper Bitty stamps, American Crafts paper, and washi tape! EASY PEASY!
Thanks for sharing a piece of “they grow up way too fast” pie with me!
