New 2007 Layout - Special Bond

My goodness, have I been on a roll!!! I sure hope I don't lose steam anytime soon with my scrapping. My mojo is HOT! :-)

I just completed, yet another layout and it's only the 14th day of the year! This is a special one I did of Jayla and our family friend, Ted.

Journaling in folder reads: “I don’t know where to start with this story. Other than to say that Jayla and “the Ted’s” have a very special bond. Ted Harris is not only a co-worker/friend of Marque’s. But also a long time friend of the family. Ted and Marque started working together at BellSouth in 1999 and became good friends. Ted was one of the people that was almost as excited as us when we found out we were going to have a baby. The day after we had Jayla, Ted was one of the first people to visit us in the hospital. He came with a bag full of gifts of Jayla. One being this cute little stuffed animal, who’s name happened to be Ted D. Bear J. Not sure if Ted (Harris) did that on purpose, but it stuck. When Jayla started to talk, she would always ask for her “Ted” (D. Bear). He became her favorite and she slept with him every night. She even took him with her when she had her 7 month pictures made. Now, Jayla is in Pre-K and Ted D. Bear is right there with her (He’s her naptime buddy). And as far as Ted Harris, every time Jayla talks to her daddy at work, she either asks him if she can talk to Ted or asks him to tell Ted that she loves him. Ted never forgets Jayla’s birthday and loves to get a big hug and kiss from her when he sees her. So I think it’s fair to say the feeling’s mutual…he loves her too!”

Thanks for your time. I'm inspired.....
