It freaked me out as I typed the title above, because if I'm blogging about BJ's one year party, that means it's coming soon!!! AAAAARGH. I don't really know what it's like on the 'mainland' aka the Continental US, but in Hawaii, a one-year old's baby party is a huge deal. When people used to ask me before BJ was born if I was going to have a one-year party (aka Baby Luau), I used to say, "Of course not! The baby's not going to remember anyway." However, now that BJ was born and we have been a 3-person family for a little over 10 months, I can totally see why families stress the importance of having it. +He's a precious child...It's going to be his ONLY first birthday, so why not have a small get-together with loved ones? Plus, I've heard that it's good luck to celebrate his good health. So why not? hehe+...
(Well... I can think of a couple of "why-not" reasons, like the stress of planning and costs involved, but I like to stay away from thinking negatively. haha)
[Doesn't BJ sound spoiled? I always said I wasn't going to spoil my first-born. Oye]
There are a lot of things you say you would/wouldn't do when you become a parent, and all of those things go out the window once you become a parent.
Anyway, I'm getting off track... I was supposed to be talking about his one-year party! lol... So we're going to have it at the new house and it's going to be kind of like a housewarming/baby-one-year barbecue. I know the character theme we'll be using, and that's about it... and it's only two months away! Ahhh. I have to start planning soon, but I have been so stressed about the move that I haven't had the time to think about his party. Well, hopefully we'll be completely moved in by this weekend, and that should give me some time to officially start party planning. *Cross my fingers that the weather remains sunny.* There was a chance of rain tonight. Eep.
Happy Sunday everyone!
