layout of my baby

So my son's birthday is coming up soon, so I'm feeling a little sad about him growing up.  I had a very difficult labor with him (we both almost died) and it was suggested that I never get pregnant again.  I am so happy with my two children, but somewhere deep down, I have never gotten over it not being my decision.  So I try to cherish all of my children's moments.  I know I'm really sappy, but I get like this around their birthdays.  
A few weeks ago when we met Jess on base, Jacob took Jess aside and said "Dad, when I grow up I want to be just like you"  is that not the sweetest thing ever!  We have a really close relationship with our children, I hope that never changes. 
Anyhow, I used white Prism paper as my base for the layout & then used some Making Memories NoteWorthy paper & die cuts for some color.  The little scalloped border is a Unity stamp that I got in my last kit of the month.  I used my stamp-a-majig to line it up perfectly.

Super layout! I love the polka dot letters. I get rather sappy around my kids birthday's too. Can't we just keep 'em in a box?
