Joaquin's Baptism Invites

I made these for my son's Baptism. I love this open swing top technique. My family is not too happy that I waited so long to baptize him. He is 7 months old. I waited so long because Joaquin was born with a collapsed lung and after being released from the NICU I wanted to make sure he was strong enough to even recieve family and friends. Well after bringing him home he wasnt doing well. He was just skin and bones. He had no muscle tone and wasnt gaining weight. Even though I was nursing him they urged me to give him a protein formula. He did so well on it and as soon as he got strong I stopped giving it to him. I am still nursing him and he is a happy and healthy baby boy. So after being strong then it was winter...We had birthdays in October, Thanksgiving in November, Christmas in December, New Year's in January, Valentine's in February, and birthdays in EVERY month. So now even though it hasn't slowed down. The weather is beautiful and I dont want to wait any longer...
