First Love

Warning:  This post is bound to make my nephew blush. 

It doesn't seem that long ago that I changed my nephew's diaper and he peed in my shoe.  Nor does it seem that long ago when he would wrap his arms tightly around my neck and kiss me very 5 seconds followed by him saying, "I love you Aunt Traci".  Cole has been a "lover" from the day he was born.  So, it's no surprise that he has always had a girlfriend.  I used to tease him that he needed to learn how to play "hard to get".  He had a new girlfriend every week on Facebook.  The only posts I would see were "Cole is in a relationship" or "Cole is single".  To my amazement, he has been dating Sam for a few months now.  It is really cute, yet sad to see him growing up.  He even got to go to prom this year.  Cole is so fun & easy to tease.  The good thing is, I can still find plenty of things to tease him about...even if he really does have a girlfriend now.

I based this layout on the color inspiration challenge over at Pages In Time.


  1. I can't believe how fast Cole is growing. I was looking at photos of him, Casey, and Sami a few days ago. It just doesn't seem like those photos were taken that long ago. It kind of makes me sad too. :)

    You did a great job on this layout Traci!

  2. That's beautiful, Traci!! I love the burlap flowers!!
