What a Finn-tastic year it has been!

Today is my baby's first birthday! As some of you may know his name is Finnegan, Finn for short. So I guess he'll be getting fish type cards for a long time. I always call him "Finn-tastic", so this sentiment was perfect, although spelled a bit differently. His first year has flown by so fast. I think this time around I enjoyed everything more, and worried less. I really have loved every minute of seeing him grow and develop a personality! He is so happy, he has a great big belly laugh, loves to crawl after his brothers and claps his hands when he gets excited. He is just the sweetest little guy.

I used the MoJo Monday sketch #105 for his birthday card. The fish is highlighted with some stickles for a bit of sparkle.

A recent photo of Finn in his backyard swing, which he really loves. Happy birthday little man!

And a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Finn! Hope he had a wonderful first birthday! =0) I remember our youngest's first and every time she saw the camera or video camera pointed at her, she cried! LOL. Oh it's funny NOW as she's 9 yrs. old, but at the time it was hard! I'm sure your li'l boy had a lot of laughs though! =0)
