Babyhood's end

Last month (at 14 months old), my son decided to stop nursing. I wasn't quite prepared for that, but I am glad it was his decision to stop. We wouldn't have even gotten started if the wonderful Lactation consultant at the hospital hadn't worked with us so much. She has helped us through the rocky start, my return to work, and some other bumps along the way. Every third Tuesday of the month, she hosts a Nursing Moms group to lend support and let us ask questions. Tomorrow will be my last visit (at least until the next kid) and I wanted to give her something to show my appreciation.

That's where Lauren's My Timeless Template-For keep{sake} came in! I loved her idea to make it a tea dispenser. When she issued her First template challenge, it all fell into place! I used the Strawberry Lemonade bath wash as my inspiration. It's hard to see, but I stamped tea cups on the yellow oval.

Lily dressed up like a nurse (lactation consultant) perfectly and I thought this baby & "got milk" stamp fit my theme perfectly.
