... I was sliced open and a squirmy, slimey 3 lb. 14 oz. baby was removed from my abdomen. My husband and I were petrified; the baby wasn't due until Christmas Eve. But he was in a hurry and didn't want to wait. He's still a lot like that. Plus, knowing him the way I do now, I'm pretty sure he thought he might score a lot of candy by being born on Halloween Eve. That tiny little hatchling has become a stringy burst of energy with a tuft of spikey blonde hair, gorgeous blue eyes, and a heartwarming smile. He's smart, funny, and athletic. And best of all, he's kind. He's a wonderful big brother and always tells me he loves me when he leaves the house or hangs up the phone. He's the last to let go of a hug. He's my #1 son (though when I tell him that, I always add that I saved the best for last. : ) ) And he's one of the great loves of my life. Happy Birthday, Truman.
Truman's card was made using the colors from today's Color Challenge: Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, and Real Red. He was colored in with Copic Sketch markers, and the "Champ" sentiment was heat embossed with white detail embossing powder.
