Hi ladies! Hope you are all well and so are your little Nightlights!
I can't believe the first year is almost over. I love, love, love having an infant and all the milestones and cuddles they come with. I'm already missing my sweet, sleepy baby. But she is growing into her own little person now. It's so exciting.
So...what are you all thinking as far as birthdays go? I'm thinking about a fall themed party. Or maybe just something girly. I love frou frou frilly stuff for baby girls, so it's my chance to do what I want with a little princess before she turns into a tomboy! We tend to go low-key for the first birthday. Just immediate family, grandparents, cake and gifts. My other kids love birthday parties, though, so we'll do it up with some decorations around the house. I'm looking for gift ideas. Piper is getting bored with the same ol' rattles and teething toys. We have some light-up sound-making toys from the other kids, but she needs something new to occupy herself with while I'm busy with the other kids/housework and can't keep an eye on her army crawling all over the place. Suggestions?
A little update: Piper is pulling up (finally) and started to cruise this week. She still army crawls (no real crawling at all). She still has ZERO teeth, but they sure are tormenting her! I wish they would cut through already and put her out of her misery. She isn't very vocal yet, but does babble "mamamamama" from time to time. Slowly we're working on table foods. I get really worried and on edge with it, though, because all three of my older kids have given me choking scares (not at this age-they were older, but still scary). It is the worst feeling in the world. So we tend to go slow with that.
How are all the babies doing?
Birthday party ideas?
