This handsome kid turned seven in March...seven! When I married Jesse he was only two and half. It is crazy to think how fast time has flown. Every year I make something for the birthday boy to wear with the number of his birthday. He loves this and had been thinking about what he wanted well in advance of his birthday. His request this year was obviously a shirt. (Freezer paper stencil and shirt from Target)
FLASHBACK: Years three (iron ons that I made on our computer, shirt from Walmart), four (crown made from felt), five (freezer paper stencil of Porter's silhouette holding up five fingers) and six (a hat custom made from Lids).
Dinner request: Pizza...so we went to the Pizza Factory.
Cake request: Ninja turtles. Yes, I made one in each color.
Once again I have abandoned by blog for far longer than I have intended. I am so sorry, and am vowing to do better. Over the next few weeks I am going to be playing catch up since March was the last time I posted! So much has happened and I am excited to share with you guys! Rolling back to March... My little man grew up and got a haircut. This was only his second haircut and I couldn't believe how much older it made my little baby seem! This kid has some great curls, but trying to pin him down in the mornings to let me fix it was like trying to shove a cat into a bucket of water. It was super long, but man was it cute when he let me fix it.
He managed to go through about half a box of Mike & Ikes (I heard they were getting back together?) while I cut his hair. But it did the trick and he held pretty still.
After I fixed it and let it go a day or two, I realized it needed to be cut a little more, so I went shorter on the sides and gave him steps. Why not right?
