Happy Birthday, Benjamin! and a GIVEAWAY (Closed)!

Pin It
Happiest of birthdays to who I can objectively say is the best son,

He really is the best.

We're having a party.
My family is coming (today! yay!).

So we're going to celebrate one year of Ben's life as well as me making it through my first year of motherhood, which for those of you that know me, wasn't always the easiest.
The hormonal beginning was really a struggle for me if I'm being completely honest.
But I'm much better now. Thanks be to God.

To say that we love this guy is a severe understatement.
And this past year has been the best, most difficult, most hormonal and character-extending year of my life.
I am so grateful.

The Giveaway:

The Prize-
Remember my knitted cowl? I posted pictures awhile ago with the instructions for making one, but many of you have no interest in knitting, and wanted to know if I would be selling them.
I'm not going to sell them as of right now, but I will give one away for free!

The prize cowl is exactly the same as mine from the post, but it has a slightly different button.
Perfect for that balmy Spring weather! :)

How to Enter-
You can enter this giveaway three times!
One entry for each of the following:
1) Either follow me via Google Connect (On the right side of the screen),
follow the blog via email (also on the right side)
2) "like" my page on Facebook.
3) Tell me one thing to which I can look forward in the coming year having a 1-2 year old. ;)

If you already follow me or "like" me on facebook, just leave a comment that says such.

Not so Fine Print-
Only three entries per person, duplicates will be deleted. One entry will be chosen at random to pick the winner. Only US residents (sorry international peeps!). The prize will be shipped to the winner in the week following the giveaway via USPS.
This giveaway closes on Sunday, February 26th at midnight.

Good luck! :)


  1. The thing about 1 year-olds I love is that they think they are all so grown-up, but they really are still babies. I've been enjoying the baby-ness more with each kid, and I am not as much in a hurry for it to be over.

    .. and the talking thing is the bomb. :)

  5. Something you have to look forward is the exploring! They're so curious.

  6. okay -- entry #2. (your word verification is making me retype this about 13 times :)

    I'm a 'fan' on facebook.

  7. I just became a follower. What a great blog!

  8. I have a Benjamin as well and he is 6. Benjamins really are the sweetest boys aren't they? ;) The thing to look forward to is just watching in wonder at how quickly they learn and how much they are fascinated by what we think are ordinary things.

  9. Very cute! I am following :) I am thinking of trying to make one for my little one! Definitely make sure you soak in the moments- the second year goes faster then the first!


Please leave your feedback! I would love to hear what you have to say.
