Less than one month and our son is going to be 1 year old!!! This is just crazy to me, time has gone by so fast it’s unbelievable. Ryden turning 1 is bittersweet for me, it is so fun & amazing to watch him grow and discover the world around him but it is also sad because all the firsts he’s had we will never experience with him again. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, time really is so precious and life really is too short!
Like I said January 3rd is less than a month away so I’ve started to plan his birthday party, with the holidays coming up I figured I should get a head start since during Christmas I won’t have much time. I’m going in blind here, I’ve never planned a birthday party for a baby before. How many people do we invite, what kind of cake should I make, should we make a big or small deal about it, do we make it a party with just family & a few close friends? I guess it really boils down to personal preference. Also my husbands birthday just so happens to be the same day so I’ve got to try and plan 2 different birthdays. I never want Chris to think his birthday is less important now, so it will be my mission to make both boys feel like it is both their day!!
I’m a very detail oriented & organized type of person, so planning these kinds of things if I don’t have multiple lists I can’t function. Just “winging it” is not an option for me! Haha I’ve got some ideas up my sleeve & a couple lists started so I’m hoping it all works out the way I am picturing it in my head! We only get 1 first birthday so here’s hoping it all comes together!!
