This past year I wanted to do a different theme. Since James was born, our parents were always guessing what he may become when he grows up based on any number of his actions. If he threw a ball, they were convinced he would be a ball player. If he grabbed a bottle of nail polish, they knew he would be a nail technician (that is a true story!) So, we thought it would be fun to highlight some of these and turn them into a 12 month reminder of how insane grandparents can be. :)
This was the cover. Could this child BE any cuter?! (To be read a la Chandler Bing)
Anyone get the Matthew McConaughey reference???
Anyone get the Stepbrothers reference?
It is so weird to look back and see how little he was! It was almost a year ago that I was taking these pictures! He looks like a baby!
We also used the calendar to announce to our families that we were expecting baby #2. We added a picture of James with each relative on their birthday. Then we added the picture below with the caption "Baby Reffey #2 due date." Everyone was pretty surprised by it, which was fun. I captured my in-laws reaction on video, priceless. I wish I would have been able to record my parents' as well because they were beyond shocked! I love happy surprises!!
Yes, this was a random post, and months late, but I was discussing the calendar with a friend the other day and realized that she had never seen the pictures. So, here they are! Now I am tasked with making a 2014 calendar with 2 kids... this should be a barrel of fun. Equivalent to maybe giving the dog a bath, convincing a 2-year-old to eat their veggies, or getting a 6-week-old to go to bed at a decent hour. Not that I have experience with those lately. Pictures to come... hopefully!
