big birthday boy FOUR {and a giveaway!}

this post was intended for thursday but with blogger being down for maintenece all day it just never happened. so let's just carry on and pretend that the following was posted on harper's day, yesterday may 12th, okay? okay.




yay, yay, yay today is harper's day! my sweet boy is 4 (FOUR!!) today!


i asked him if he felt like four when he woke up this morning and he looked at me and very seriously said "i think i do, mom."






this is what i get when i jubilantly say "show me how old you are!"




and just look at these two. oh, be still my mama heart. those little sandles that luca has on were harper's first sandles. i just happened to discover them when i cleaned the closet in my sewing room. i am so happy i held on to them! luca reminds me so, so much of harper at this age. same amazing eye lashes. same crazy curls. they make a pretty dynamic duo, for sure!








okay, now onto harper's birthday giveaway! my little guy's current favorite activity is creating wonderful works of art. i have given him his own little corner in my sewing room and he spends a whole lot of time in there coloring, cutting, and gluing stuff. i sewed him his own coloring wallet a couple years ago when he was really too small to care about coloring. but now... he carries that thing everywhere with him!




so for harper's giveaway we picked out this cute little owl print coloring wallet. unfamiliar with coloring wallets? well, let me tell you all about it!


it is handmade (by me!) in an adorable cotton owl print. it comes with a sketch pad that fits in the pocket on the far right. on the left there are little slots for crayons to slide into. 8-10 crayons will easily fit and there is a small flap to keep everything in it's place. the center pocket holds all of your child's drawings. if you prefer a small box of 8 crayons will fit right into the center pocket, but my kiddos never, ever return their crayons to the box! it all folds up and is secured with a button and elastic closure.





to enter this giveaway simply leave a comment with a happy birthday wish for harper! we will be sure to read to him each one of your kind sentiments!


also, i would love to have you all follow our little blog and stop back by for another visit! if you choose to do so go ahead and enter again by leaving a seperate comment. if you already follow inspired mama musings please let me know that too, and thank you ♥


we will close the comments on the evening of wednesday may 18th and announce a winner the following morning.


good luck, i hope you win!
