So. I think I have serious issues. Like when I just even THINK about Isaac turning one I go into panic mode and I feel like someone should be rushing a paper bag over to me to breathe into. Or I think about stealing him and running away because if we run away then he won't really be one?! See. Issues people...I need help!

It's a good thing that I have slowly accumulated a billion things for his birthday or else I'm not sure at this point I'd be able to do it! I guess I felt safe buying things then because the party still felt SO far away..but now that it is so close I feel a bit like becoming a recluse.

Don't get me wrong. I am happy he is growing and healthy...I am just so sad because it is all happening way too fast. And because I already have a 7 and 3 year old I KNOW it's not ever going to stop. He is just going to keep on growing and I just wish he'd stay a baby a little bit longer.

So. Continuing with birthday month post #2...we also bought Isaac an Avalisa "I love you" canvas. Actually, I bought 4. One for each boy and one for our future 4th baby?! (or one to make a nice baby shower gift to someone else's baby :)

I first saw them in this nursery and I still haven't decided if I'm going to let the boy's paint in the o's...what do you think?

*And if everyone could continue to pray for my friend and her family it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.*

Oh my gosh, where do I start?? First, I know exactly how you feel. I was a little heartbroken when I realized that Stevie was actually about to turn one!! So if you need someone to hand you a bag, I can do that for you!

Second, I adore the I love you canvas, and I really hope that you have another baby!!! What a beautifully simple piece of art.

Third, you make the most beautiful baby boys, I can't imagine what a girl would look like. You must keep an open mind on #4!!!! I love this post.

I picture you in a closet, holding Isaac, laughing and playing make-believe. Not in a desperate way, but pretending like the rest of the world doesn't exist and there are no such thing as birthdays! xo

Aww!! I can't believe he is turning one either!! Times goes by so fast!!

The "I love you" canvas is precious, I kinda want one now, and the painted in O's are a must!

4th baby?!?! That would be awesome, I definitely would love to knit up some more plump booties for you!!!! :)

ALL of this talk about babies is seriously making me rethink the whole "I'M DONE" fase I was going through!! I really am getting a baby itch! Our sweet little guys are getting so big, it hurts my heart!! LOVE the canvas...and you must have the painted O' sweet!!
