1 more day

Tomorrow is Blake's first birthday! I couldn't decide if we should have people come over for a party or just do a family thing. The family thing won. When I told the dentist that we weren't having a party and jokingly said Blake wouldn't remember it anyway, he said, "Well but you'll have pictures of it." Oh great. Thanks dentist*. Now I feel like a horrible mother.

We're sticking with the family thing and will be having a fun-filled day of activities that Blake currently enjoys. We'll do a little car watching, followed by Blake watching videos of himself. We'll probably play with his toys and then if it isn't raining maybe we'll hit up the playground. To top it all off, Blake will get his very first cupcake and some ice cream in celebration of turning 1!

I can't believe this day is almost here. Everyone told me the time would fly and he'd be 1 year old before I knew it. I didn't believe them when he was waking up every 2 hours to eat. I didn't believe them when he was projectile vomiting into my mouth (shudder). I didn't believe them when he was cutting his first tooth.

But now, I'm a believer. I'm about to be the mother of a toddler...
*No, my dentist's name is not Crentist.

I think it's great you are having family over! We are going to do the same thing, even though one set of grandparents think it's a waste of time and money :o(

Happy *early* Birthday to your not so little anymore baby! I love that you're having a family event. We tried to go all out with a party and not only did it cost a lot of money, but I wasn't able to thoroughly enjoy the day since I was so busy entertaining. Don't listen to your dentist!

Happy Birthday, Blake!

I'm all for toning down festivities as long as the kid's too young to remember it. I don't plan on giving my kids Christmas presents until they're in first grade and wonder why all the other kids at school get gifts at Christmas. Just kidding. Maybe.

Crentist!! haahahaa!!! I really hope being sick on Blake's birthday isn't an annual thing. Last year, I had pneumonia and this year some crazy virus that had me sick for about 3 days!! I sure miss him. :)
