In Lifeby eva.katona@yahoo.com5 Comments

I decided to go for nautical themed decoration for Bobcat’s 2nd birthday party. I really like nautical design (of everything) and it’s easy to coordinate.

Bobcat loves to read. Well, he doesn’t exactly read yet, and he won’t sit still through long stories I read to him either. But he loves being read to, especially if there’s more activity to it.
