Lakin’s birthday is in 8 short days! My sweet wonderful fairy girl will be 4! FOUR! Is that even possible? *sob*
We had Tonya of Mother& Child Creations make her a fuzzy hemp fleece robe with a bright hearts embroidery that Lakin loves and I am making her a pair of slippers with the fuzzy hemp fleece inside and the bright hearts embroidery. I think she’ll love it, she loves to take baths and this will give her something cuddly to wrap up in afterword.
Here’s the robe ~ OMG this thing is a little piece of heaven! Tonya did a most excellent job on it and it’s just perfect, not a STITCH out of place. She even did a “grow-with-me” hem so Lakin can still wear it if she ever decides to get taller.
Hilary and her boyfriend are coming up early next Saturday morning to celebrate Lakin’s birthday with us. We’ll probably cook out ~ that will also be Drew’s first day of FREEDOM so it will be a wonderful day for more than one reason.
July 16th – the day we became parents, the day we met our wonderful Lakin, the day we celebrate our independence and the day we set off on the path to our dreams.
