Zion is 1!

So, my nephew Zion turned 1.  He is seriously one of the cutest babies I have ever laid eyes on. So stinkin' precious.  And big. He's wearing 3T clothes and,  yes, he is a big boy!  You don't see it coming tho.  I was so very excited to see him when we went to his birthday party.  It's been a long time since I've had a baby-baby, so of course, I wanted to hold him. I picked him up and almost went down to the ground. He is heavy! My back started hurting after holding him for about 5 minutes.  He's more of a "sit on my lap" kinda baby. And at 1, he still has that yummy baby smell.  Now, don't go getting any crazy ideas. No, I'm not saying that I want more kids!  3 girls are good enough for me. Especially since they're not little anymore.  I don't think I have the kind of energy to start over, so I'll just be grateful for what I have.  And enjoy whatever loaner babies I'm lucky enough to get my hands on.

Loaner babies are the best. You can hand them back when they cry and your responsibility has ended! And this is a seriously cute baby boy card. The brown and blue. The textured ribbon. The twine in the button. The adorable teddy bear. Awwww.
