How cute is my little man here? I can't believe this was over 5 years ago and yet he is still as smiley and cheeky as he was back then.
The journalling, for those without magnifying glasses, reads: I definitely think that I was more excited than anyone about your birthday. To be honest, I didn't think we'd get there, plus I was bored of the same toys!"
The funny thing is that looking at the toys in the photos here, I remember how little he had back then and how crazy the amount they now have between them. We had an Adam's style fireplace (a brick opening, as wide as the actual fireplace with nothing inside it) and inside there we had a set of small shelves for his toys. In front of this was one of those folding plastic baskets where we used to keep his books. That was it, one bucket of books that we read over and over. Now we have shelves and shelves and shelves of books for both of them and I still find myself buying more. When I think of the amount of "schtuff" we have now, I wonder how we would have managed if we hadn't moved into the suburbs. I certainly wouldn't have my own craft room with approaching 15 albums of layouts that's for sure ;-)
Bye for now
