Xavier's First Birthday Card

My son and his partner have custody of a little boy called Xavier. When I say little I mean little - he was a prem baby born at 24 weeks, weighing in at 740g. He was four months old when he came into their care and he was so tiny and fragile. Today he turns ONE and to look at him now it is hard to believe that he was so little. In fact we now call him "Buddha" lol.
This is the card I have made him - isn't it cute. Now I am going to be a bit philisophical so bear with me. The lion represents how brave Xavier has been, the giraffe represents how big he has grown and the monkey represents how cheeky Xavier is - he has the most beautiful smile. I have CASED this card from Lisa.

Here's the Birthday boy when was 4 months old about to start his new life with Jacqui and Brad.

And look at him now at 11 months. (Playing with the paper from my SU parcels)

Happy Birthday Big Boy. It will be a sad day too as he was one of a twin but his brother died a week after birth.

Happy crafting.
