One year ago this week, my precious son Kaypha was born on Mother's Day. He was three weeks early but weighed in at a hefty 10 pounds, 5 ounces! We've been so blessed to have this sweet, snuggly, mostly laid back kiddo in our lives. We had a family day at the zoo on Monday and we'll be having a Panda Party this weekend (we got the great idea from Heather and since Kaypha's nickname lately has been "Panda Bear" we thought it was perfect!)
Here's Kaypha at the zoo with his daddy:
and with his Auntie Cambria (also a better view of his birthday shirt)
While this isn't exactly a fabulous picture, it does give you a good idea of what his shirt looks like:
I made it using the freezer paper stencil technique I used in the first half of this tutorial for a Spring Cleaning onesie. If you are totally unfamiliar with how to do a freezer paper stencil, I am Momma Hear Me Roar has the best introductory tutorial I've seen.
I'll even share my graphic in case you've got a Birthday Panda of your own who needs a styling t-shirt or onesie (click to enlarge). The graphic should take up about a half sheet of paper, so you could even print two on the same page. If you need to blow it up bigger and it gets blurry, that's fine. Just trace over everything with a sharpie to smooth it out before cutting.
Keep checking back this week as I plan to update the blog with different crafty elements that we're putting together to make the panda party happen.
