Then, you were so very small. Daddy and I tried to prepare for you as best as we could, but we had no idea what it would be like to have such a tiny little person in our house with us. You were just so small (even if EVERYONE kept calling you huge, you were tiny to us).
And then...just like that, I blinked. Eddie, I blinked and you were one year old. You were not a baby anymore. You are now a toddler with QUITE a personality.
I'll love you forever
I'll like you for always
As long as I'm living
My baby YOU'LL be,
And now, because he is officially a big boy, Eddie would LOVE to give YOU something in honor of his birthday!
Eddie loves to read. I think he got that quality from his momma who ALSO loves to read.
SIDE NOTE: In fact, I have a book blog over here that is going to have a mad awesome series called "July is SUMMER Reading Month" that will feature lots of great guest bloggers and some fun giveaways! So stay tuned.
As I was saying, Eddie and I love to read. We hope you do too. Because of our love, we are giving away a $25 Gift Certificate to Barnes and Noble!
Anyone can win this! All you have to do to enter is the following:
Mandatory to enter: Leave me a comment here. Any old comment will do.
Extra entries (please leave extra entries in their own comment space. That means use a SEPARATE comment for each entry. If you don't, your extra entries WON'T be counted):
1. "like" Sluiter Nation on facebook and come back and tell me you did (or if you do already, tell me that)
2. become a follower using the Google Friend Connect on the side of my blog and comment that you did (or tell me if you already are a follower...and thank you, by the way)
3. Tweet the following: "Giveaway!!@ksluiter is giving away the gift of reading at http://bit.ly/ctS3lp! Enter now!" Make sure to come back and tell me that you did! (one tweet per day)
That is it! This giveaway will end Sunday, June 27 at 6:00 pm. A winner will be chosen using Random.org and announced Monday morning.
The disclaimer stuff: You must have a valid email address to win. You don't need to be a blogger, but you need to leave some sort of way for me to get a hold of you if you win. Also, Barnes and Nobles did not give me a darn thing to do this. How lovely it would be to have them as a sponsor, but alas, this one is from my own pocket because Sluiter Nation appreciates it's readers that much.
