Spring! That's how it is!

I wanted to do a page about how Katie is my shadow at the moment, always running after me. I thought this Pooh Bear quote would be most appropriate. Then of course I see she has her Beanie Kid (bear) in her hand as usual - always a teddy on hand! So I guess this page could be for me and for the teddy she always insists on carrying around. At creche the teachers are worried that she constantly has her teddy. They are her security blanket. I am not so worried! Not like she will be 18 and carrying around her teddy bear! LOL! Let her be little for as long as she needs.

That Pooh quote is perfect for the LO of Katie and Teddy!! I wouldn't worry either....when she's ready, Teddy will be on a shelf in her room to be admired and to help bring back awesome memories!!

As always, your LOs are a feast for the eyes!! TFS!!

Oh my, these are beautiful!!!! I am loving the one of Katie, and the word art (again!) is just perfect!!!!!! I just downloaded it..thank you!!!! Funny thing is, Jessi wasn't feeling so well this morning and she insisted on taking her Pooh to school. At first, I thought about saying no...I'm sure the teachers wouldn't approve, but then I quickly changed my mind. You are RIGHT, they should be allowed to be little for as long as they possibly can!!!! Love the Spring layout too- gorgeous colors and picture!!!!!
