We had our little girl’s first birthday party today. Kind of. She woke up feeling cranky, and that isn’t really like her. Her eyes were a little puffy and she was slightly warm. Our poor little girl just wasn’t feeling her best. Still, after some playing and some resting she was in a good enough … More The Party
It is my bedtime. Almost. But I wanted to spread the good news of a mini party for my little one turning 1. The Mrs. and I just spent the last hour decorating our living room to be party central for the four of us. The party is of course more for us than for … More Party Prep
