I have bought the decorations. I won’t put them up until the week of the party, but I like knowing that I have them. It is one less thing to worry about. I will really only be decoration the living room and dining room.
I am still figuring out what I want to do for food. My thought is a veggie platter, fruit platter, and sandwiches (the party is from 2-5, though I am sure it will go longer). And of course cake, though I will probably order that. I will make cupcakes though.
As a fellow August ’11 mom said, this isn’t a party for the baby but more for the parents to celebrate their first year of parenthood.
In just two weeks my baby will turn a year old. I can’t help but wonder where the time went. I think back on the year and I am amazed by everything that happened, and how much stronger it has made me. The best thing about this year is the little boy I have now. He is my world. And no matter how old, or how big he gets, he will always be my little boy, my prince.
