Well, it's hard to believe, but Noah was six months old yesterday! How did that happen? I swear I was just pregnant yesterday! On Riley's six month "birthday", I did a spread for him with a poem about a mother and her eldest child. Here is that spread:
So I thought I would follow suit and do something similar for Noah. Hmmm, easier said than done. Apparently nobody out there has written a poem about a second child! I searched on the internet forever, and couldn't find anything suitable. So, change of plans. Since I couldn't find a poem, I decided to just write a little bit about him instead.
He's becoming such a happy little boy who does a wonderful job of keeping himself busy, which is certainly a gift when I've got a 21 month old running around, demanding my attention. So I wrote this on his pages, to remind myself of what his personality was like at this stage.
The pages came about a little differently than they usually do for me. I can't remember the last time I didn't partially paint over a patterned paper to mask it somewhat. But on these pages, I didn't feel the need to cover the pattern on the right-hand page -- maybe since it's such a subtle, vintage-y feeling pattern. It bothers me a touch to have the mass-produced paper so visible, but oh well, I guess I just need to trust what the artwork tells me, and don't mess with it if I don't need to.
Happy 6 months, little Noah!
