Happy Birthday to my grandson Jack!!

Today is Jack's birthday (sort of!) He was born on February 29th last year and is celebrating his first birthday today. The picture above was taken the day that he was born. The picture below I took from Brittainy's facebook page. It was taken recently. He is so CUTE!!! I just love that little boy.


He is a true LEAP DAY baby. Lots of people get confused and say Leap year baby, but don't realize that every baby born in a leap year is a leap year baby. Only those born on the 29th of February are a leap day baby! Because he was born on Leap Day I have decided to get him something frog related for his birthday every year. This year I bought him a stuffed frog.

I also made this little hedgehog for him. I knitted and felted it last week and stuffed it on Thursday. Isn't he the cutest little thing!


Thanks for stopping by today.

take care,
Dawn

I've been wondering, ever since Jack was born, when he would celebrate his birthday. He is one absolutely adorable one-year-old! But then, I don't need to tell you that, do I? :)
Hope he has a wonderful, wonderful birthday!

And Dawn, that hedgehog is just too stinkin' cute for words!

Dawn, Jack is a beautiful little boy. Happy Birthday Jack!!! So will he celebrate his birthday the 28th or March 1st? Except of course when it is leap year. Your hedge hog is the cutest thing ever. Dawn, why am I not surprised at what you can do?

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Hi Dawn,
Happy Birthday to Jack. He is adorable.

I think the Hedgehog is so cute. I know you are familiar with Jan Brett's books...he might be a little young for that...but maybe later!

We actually had one as a classroom pet one year! The kids took turns taking him home on weekends.

Hi Dawn, Just dropped over to say hello. I have been in Atlanta all day visiting my sister and did fine for my first outing since the "knee."
Bill had to get new hearing aids. It had snowed and it was icy. Lol. I had to walk on her drive way up to her garage on solid ice. I was so frightened, but I made it. Unlike where you live this is not common. I remember when you slipped on ice. OUCH!

Hope you had a great day.

Hugs...Jeanne
