Airplane Birthday Party decorations and ideas

Guess who had a birthday party? It was so much fun putting O's birthday party together and choosing an airplane theme. I designed and bought this sign from Staples when they had them on sale for $10!  The banner above I cut out planes and clouds from my silhouette and then sewed them together!

Well, I tried applique, not very good at this at all but it made the cutest bib and shirt for his big day.

I absolutely love these wingers and propeller! I made them out of foam and painted and used A LOT of duct tape.

Some pictures before his big day. 

I have taken pictures each month and displayed it as a banner over the fireplace.

My favorite part of his birthday airplane decor! I put his pictures on foamboard shaped like a one, blue tablecloth for a background and cute plane and airplanes from paper.

Transforming our Bedroom

I've been meaning to redo our bedroom and get rid of our floral quilt, boring decor and wall art.  After getting rid of our bedspread (phew that felt great) and replacing it with a light blue quilt, fluffy pillows, and our awesome canvas family picture.

I LOVE how my room has transformed! Our focal point is our family picture which I'll put our initials on each side of it.  It looks great, I haven't printed on canvas before and love how it turned out.  I used Printcopia which has amazing quality and affordable prices and it was super easy to use and get our photo printed and quickly to us.

Here is our picture we used.  I added our initials in the bottom corner then adding our initials on the wall to frame the art will look awesome! I love my little family and couldn't believe we didn't have one photo of us in our room.  

 From our old grandma room now transformed into a trendy and relaxing sanctuary, it is so much nicer walking in and our room feels more put together and represents our family!

Next time I can't wait to use Printopia for decals, acrylic printing, panoramic printing, canvas etc. Here are some of my favorite products they have!

11 month picture taking

I can't believe in a month O will be a year! Time has gone by so fast and it feels like he's been with us 5 months, but then I can't even remember life before him coming. He's  growing up so big and I love his 6 teeth showing so big when he smiles and how he took his first steps! We practice with him every night and he takes a few more but he is scared we'll drop him (too many face plants).

My baby signing has finally paid off and he's so good and signing "book" and can do "more" but he just looks at me like "come on just feed me, I know you'll give me more anyway"... which is true because he's so active and still a little skinny dude.  Oh, and he started pointing to everything he wants so my sign language stuff is being overlooked.  We just got a baby sign language book for him and when we read it we mimic the signs, well the first few pages are about food so we can't get far in the book because he starts having a fit and wants to eat lol.

He's still so good, super active (makes church more difficult) he loves being awake and when we put him down for naps he loves playing in his crib and putting himself to sleep.  He wants to be independent and smiles and laughs a lot and tries to make us laugh.  He's the best baby!
