Every month we go to Midnight Star Pottery to paint a plate with Tripp's hand and/or footprint on it. I got this idea when he was about a month old and we were doing a birth announcement type of plate. I had wanted to do it when he was first born, but with all the craziness of having a preemie and exhaustion, I didn't feel well enough to do that until he was a month. We go every month and we are having a blast making plates to match the theme of the month or the holiday that falls that month. We never seem to do only one plate either! We do our normal plate, and then usually something for the next gift for the grandparents coming up. I alsolutely love painting these plates!
I'm so sad this is blurry!
Painting pottery will always be a fun memory I have of being with my little man when he was a baby. I will treasure these pieces for my whole life!
