Look Who's Turning 2!

Two years ago today my life totally changed.  I've had children and I love my kids more than anything but was totally unprepared for how much a little baby grandson would steal my heart!  Those of you with grandkids may know exactly how I feel. 
Two years ago today I was awakened about 4:30am that my daughter and son in law were on the way to the hospital.  We were in the midst of a huge storm (which turned out to be a devastating one with tremendous flooding in the Atlanta area) and our power was out.  I took a shower in the dark and then my husband and I left the house to head to the hospital.  At that point some roads were already closed but we made it to the hospital thankfully.
Two years ago in the early afternoon at 1:45pm to be exact, David was born.

Two years ago this is what he looked like:
And today, 2 years later, he looks like this:
I love this kid!

So, today we will celebrate his birthday with presents, cupcakes and a good dose of Omie play!

He will have a small family party on Saturday.

My, quickly 2 years have flown by....

Here is a card I made to give him today.  He loves trains right now the background paper is a train print.  The sentiment on top which is embossed says "look who's turning".
 Other supplies included:
Tim Holtz grungeboard (the 2) and the Tim Holtz rosette die.
Marth Stewart Glitter
Paper by Paper Studio: Little Boys and Their Toys
Stampin' Up Ribbon
Nestabilities: Standard Circles large
Splendor Inks
Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher
Zing Clear Embossing Powder
Unity Stamp: Oh Happy Day!

Happy Crafting!
