The big first birthday! And this is supposed to be the post in which I wax nostalgic and say something sweet about one year ago today, right? I think one year ago today I was using *very bad words* in a loud manner at Baptist Hospital East. Ha ha.
Here is a collage I made of the big boy. I used Photoshop to create a layout similar to one we purchased from Sears when Dorothy had her first birthday. (Before I purchased the good camera!) I hung a sheet over the stair railing and snapped away while Dorothy and Nana repeatedly handed Worth the ball, caught it, and returned it to him, guaranteeing happy faces.
I made ball-themed gift packs for the small guests at his party. I sewed little drawstring bags out of ball-reminiscent polka dot fabric and included ball-shaped candies, a swimming pool splash ball, and a little coloring sheet of Worth with a ball (more Photoshop). Worth has recently become obsessed with balls and sees them everywhere, always with an accompanying chant of “baw-ul, baw-ul, baw-ul.”
