This is my mother's day
Well, it is official. Baby Hughes is 1! I can't believe that one year ago at 3:17 am this little man came into our lives. After 18+ hours of labor, he came right on time, on our due date. This past year has been so amazing. Even though I loved him from the instant I found out that I was pregnant, I have never been the same since I saw the shocked look in his blue eyes when he was born. I was in love! "They" always say to enjoy the time because it goes by so fast, and it truly, truly does. For instance from this at 3 days old:
to this 3 days ago:
So, since this is primarily a blog about my obsession with vintage treasures and all things home related, I thought I would share some photos from Baby Hughes' nursery. This is the growth chart that Mr. Hughes made. We need it...he started at 22 inches and he is off the height charts!
One of the scrapbook paper plaques I made.
His cute bedding from Land of Nod. I am not usually so "themey" but I really loved the argyle and the animals were so cute that I had to have it.
Some book racks that Mr. Hughes made (isn't he so wonderful and handy?!)
The alphabet lines 2 of his walls. We just enlarged and printed out a font we liked and tacked them on the wall.
And, the project that took the longest for Mr. Hughes to complete. The changing table. It took him forever to sand and paint it. But, it turned our wonderful and I think we seriously paid only $50 for it.
I would love to show you more photos of his room, but we can't find the photo files right now. Now, I am off to bed so I can wake up early and spend my day off with my 1 year old!
