Happy Birthday Auntie Steph!

Today is my big sisters birthday! The big 2-9! Of course she's in Korea and long done celebrating and already into the next day by the time I post this. (Talk about belated!)  Jack and I wanted to do some really cute pictures for her wishing her a happy birthday. Of course sometimes my expectations and reality don't line up.

My phone now holds a hundred pictures of Jack and this sign. And about 5 of them are ones that you can tell he's holding a sign and barely read the words. Just FYI, It's two sided with a message "Happy Birthday to my..." and "Auntie Steph!".

But he was so taken with the fact that there was writing on the page he couldn't just hold it up and smile. He wanted to run his hands over it, look for the markers, bend the page, flatten it to the floor and put it on his head.

Here is the BEST sequence I could get before it all unravelled:

Happy Birthday to my...

Auntie Steph (yes its upsidedown but we get points for trying!)

I even tried holding him and taking a picture which flopped because I need my arm to be 3 feet longer to get the whole shot.
I hope that have a wonderful birthday big sis!! :) we tried to get some good shots for you - hope you like them! This reminded me of the last time I did a sign montage with Jack - OMG.  I giggled at every picture because he is so much the same and so different.  Our daily routine is certainly different, but it was really fun to remember those days.

I can't imagine how this much time has passed and he's all grown (okay, I know he's only 1.5 years old. Let me be dramatic) .  We need to do another blog entry like that and soon. I may need to track down our little magnedoodle...

Thanks for stopping by and enjoying another post about our birthday partying Happily Hectic Household!
