First, we transformed Jack's room as he slept the night before his bday, in honor of the big move from toddler bed to "big boy" bed. Although its still just a mattress on the floor, thus, Dude doesn't consider it "big" yet. Guess he can't get much air jumping off... poor kid. And I'm so going to share how the cityscape was done, so you've been warned!
Then we set up and filled a sandbox Boz made. I know, he's getting so handy- I LOVE IT.And that night he got to party with grandma, grandpa and uncle Sam. And yes... the cake is pink. I couldn't get the strawberry ice cream any more red without sacrificing flavor. An unwilling trade.
And oh yes, how can I forget... The one thing he kept saying he wanted was "black spider-man pajamas". Momma delivered :). Sorry, I'm gloating, but I'm pretty excited that they actually turned out.Made from a soft jersey knit, I top stitched the web design on the chest. Appliqued a spider (made from an old grey T-shirt).And by Boz's request - a hood, complete with eye holes . A bit snug for the big dude.
Mid-week Jack got to start preschool! Co-op with a few other mommies.
