today is francois' birthday.
23 years ago tonight, my son was born. he was such a cute baby, with LOTS of hair...
he was born at 22h30, weighed 4.01kg and was 53cm long. he was unplanned, but not unwelcome!
and this is what he looks like now:
he has become a beautiful young man.
i used treasures and colormates cardstock, pattern paper from paper explosion's wedding collection (south african), a little scrap of 7 gypsies paper, rub on alphas and ribbons from my stash, silver photocorners. and my 2 most trusty scrapbooking tools: my black pen and my stapler.
all along the border of the cardstock, i repeated morse code for i love you.
he is away with his grandparents, so i don't see him today.
happy birthday francois! i love you, and your father would have been proud of the man you have become.
