It's official.....he is a year old now. I cannot believe that it has been one solid year since this precious baby was born. We all stand in amazement of how fast time is passing by us.
We had such a great day though. We generally have very low-key birthdays in our family but they are always fun.....and aren't first birthdays just extra-special somehow? I think so.
I remembered about two days before his birthday that I had not made him a special outfit to wear. So you know what that means, don't you? I pulled out my pattern blocks and drafted him this cute little romper. When I stitched up a quick prototype I wasn't too sure about it. But I ventured ahead and cut into the good fabric (which I later realized is the exact same fabric I used for his Easter outfit) and I quickly started loving the outfit.
It is much cuter on Ean....but here you can see the entire outfit and all those glorious buttons and buttonholes. I could have used snaps...but I find that snaps and heirloom fabrics don't mix too well. I have a tendency to rip the fabric when I un-snap the snaps. So I stuck with the tried and true buttons.
And I just free-handed a simple little sailboat on the fabric and then stitched a basic back stitch with embroidery floss. Very simple, but very sweet for a precious little boy who is now 1 year old!!!
