Hen was a little angel on his birthday. He kept giving me kisses and saying "dak ooo" - which is Hen for "thank you". We had a few baby friends over for birthday soup and cupcakes. I can't believe my baby is "1" already. We are so happy to have him in our family. The other day Andersen said, "Remember when Hen wasn't here and we weren't a family?" Silly Andersen we were still a family but we do feel more complete with the Henners.

I went to my friend's house the other day for a surprise party and she had a birthday banner! It was SO cute that it inspired me to make one. Mine is a lot different than hers and even different than what I had in my head to make. I just kind of made it up as I went along. I had a lot of fabric scraps from a quilt I am making so it was nice to use the scraps. I got a new sewing machine for Christmas and wanted to use it for this project but just ended up using iron-on stuff. My mother-in-law calls it wonder-under. The lady at the store called it fusion and the package said something totally different. So basically it is just iron-on double-sided backing. I am just happy I actually finished a project, and it only took me a few hours (like 5).
This is the back.
I decided to add a yo-yo as the dot on the "i" at the last moment.
I am so happy we get to use it for my baby Henry's first birthday on the 16th. Yes, Hen is almost ONE! He is such a little boy. I just want to snuggle him up.
