It doesn't seem like that long ago when we were worrying about him before we knew he was a he! Little Man came 7 weeks early, and spent his first 16 days in the NICU. We didn't find out he was a boy until he was born. He's so sweet, it made celebrating his birthday even more fun!
Tradition requires the birthday person sit with a bow on their head for one photo.
Back during my crafting before bar studying I finished these train pieces. The pieces are all bought individually and were painted with acrylic paint and varnished. Up close they look a little sloppy (they were tricky to paint) but from afar, they look perfect and colorful, very cool.
Little Man was born at 11:42 Am on Veteran's Day and so we let him open his presents at the time he was born. After that we let him spend the rest of the day playing with his new toys. Then we had rotisserie chicken for dinner and a mini ice cream cake for dessert. I didn't want to put a candle on the remains of his school cake so I got him this little one which worked out great. His birthday boy topper he gets on his cake every year.
