It's really hard to believe that my little majita chicadita will be turning 3 is a little over a month. Here's my sweet little Reese when she was just 4 weeks old. Her hemangioma was well on it's way to showing and growing and this was just the beginning. I won't focus on that except to say that we are so blessed to have such wonderful doctors here in Houston who have cared for us in so many ways and now it's barely visible. I bet you probably haven't even noticed it in previous layouts I've done of her.
Anyway, I used the Birds of a Feather September 2011 kit combined with this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch and came up with this sweet layout for my sweet little girly girl.
I chose to journal on the back and use one of the phrases from the Echo Park Victoria Gardens collection as the title because it was perfect for this...NATURAL BEAUTY is what you are born with. It's so easy to judge people because of the way they look or act and trust me when this grew to the size of a quarter and was raised 1/4" by the time she was 6 months (or sooner), we got looks from not just kids (I understand curiosity) but adults? REALLY??? I'll refrain from saying anything more than that but next time, just think about your words, actions and body language when you see people with imperfections or unruly kids. You probably don't know half of their story and more than likely I bet they could use a little empathy!
As for us, this child is perfect in every way, she has taught me sooo much and she helps put everything in perspective!
