Thank you for all your kind comments on Westin's one year pictures! Y'all know how to make a girl feel good. ;) I cannot take 100% credit for my outfit or hair though. I am not very fashion forward or even remotely trendy so I had Elizabeth help me with my outfit and my friend Aubrey did my hair. The shirt I have on is from Forever 21 and everything else was old.
A few of you noticed Westin's hand print canvas on our shelf. We did it when he was 10 months old and it is far from perfect but I just couldn't paint over it and try again. ;) As soon as we did it I thought it looked like a turkey. Haha
Hollie mentioned in the comments about a similar idea that she got from Becky. Becky gets her children's hand print every year around their birthday on an 8x8 canvas. The idea is eventually to have a collage on your wall of your child's hand prints. (Click on their name's to see their versions.)
I decided to start this tradition with Westin and our future children. I thought it would be fun to do them in the colors from their birthday party so we did Westin's in red and aqua. Thank you, Lindsey for helping me! I don't think we could have gotten it more perfect! And thank you, Hollie for letting me know about this fun idea!
So what did I do with the old hand print? I am now the proud owner of a priceless Thanksgiving decoration!
Here is a picture of the cute little guy who gave us his hand print. ;) My Dad hung his swing and Westin was sooo happy! He loves to swing!
