Three Special Boys

Meet Mason!

He is the third son of one of my best friends!

He was born in July and this picture was taken when he was just 8 days old.

And here he is with both of his big brothers, Cooper and Riley.

Thank you Erin, of Quinntography, for use of the pictures. They are beautiful!

Now, in case you're wondering...there is a reason I am showing you this sweet family! I FINALLY finished a project I have been working on for them! (Thanks to their mom, Kim, for being so patient with me!)

Three years ago, when Riley was born, Kim and I found these adorable, vintage inspired, alphabet cards.

I convinced her to buy them because I just knew we could come up with a cute project for them! So she did! (There is actually an entire set, but these are the only ones I had for a picture.) We went through a ton of ideas, but nothing seemed just right. And before long, the cards were forgotten!

Fast forward 3 years...and baby boy #3 is here! When I went to see Mason for the first time, there were the cards sitting on the nursery dresser! This time, we didn't even take time to think about it! We took the three cards with the boys first initials on them and decided to paint them on some old wood!

I had an old quilt box that I had deconstructed sitting in the garage.

It was perfect! One plank was big enough for all three letters!

"M" is for Mason

"R" is for Riley

"C" is for Cooper

They turned out so cute! They are not identical, which just gives them more character. They will be precious displayed all together or separate in each of the boys' rooms!

It has taken me a while to get these done, but I hope the boys LOVE them!

Be sure and check in later this week, I have some makeovers to share!

Thanks for stopping by!
