The Birthday Plate

Today my Mom and I took the boys to Different Strokes to paint pottery. When Peyton was a year old I took him and made a birthday plate for him. I had his hand print painted on the middle of the plate so I can always remember how small his hand once was on his first birthday. (I know that's such a Mom thing to say.) My plan is that as they get older they will eat their slice of birthday cake on this plate each year. Well, Parker's first birthday is less than a month away so it was time to make his plate so it could be ready in time for his birthday. Peyton wanted to paint a Nemo fish and he had so much fun doing it. He was so intense about painting the fish so perfectly he wouldn't even look up for a picture. I can't believe I forgot to take a picture of Parker and his handprint on his plate. I guess I will have to do it when I go pick it up next week.
Here is a picture from the day I took Peyton in to make his birthday plate, almost two years ago.
Here is Peyton's finished product. I'm hoping Parker's plate comes out just as cute.
