My little baby turned four on Saturday. She told me she was a big girl. I told her she will always be my baby- even when she is a grown up.
We bought her a bike- and with some of her birthday money, a helmet. She was eager to ride it, hence the pajamas and bare feet.
I also figured it was time she had her own place mat. I stitched and stitched to get this done in time for her family party Sunday night. Even though she doesn’t know a lick of French, she still likes it- and so do I.
While searching pinterest for some party ideas I ran across this tip to revamp a dollar store number candle. When we were buying balloons and streamers at Target my baby asked for party hats. I went ahead and bought the plain (no character) hats and it dawned on me that I could “re-vamp” the hat.
All you need is a hat, glue, glitter and sequins (or beads). I printed a large number four in MSWord, cut it out and traced it onto the hat in thin sharpie. I outlined the number in glue and sprinkled silver glitter. Then I filled the number in with more glue and multi-colored glitter. Topped it all off by gluing random sequins on top of the glitter. She loved it and I was tickled with how simple and cute it was.
