Donut Grow Up

Y’all!!  My BABY is now almost 13 months old!  How can this be?!  I swear it was last week when she was 13 days old snuggling on my chest (and screaming non stop from 7pm – 10pm).  Now she is a few days shy of 13 months old and walking around the house (still snuggling on me too- but only between the laps she WALKS around the house). Why is time such a thief? Why do babies not keep?  All of the emotions get me.  I am so happy  watching her grow up, but I do wish she would stay little for a little while longer.

I have been looking at her FIRST birthday party pictures over and over and over (and maybe over and over).  I cannot believe it was a month ago my baby turned ONE.  How do we have a ONE year old? I still cannot believe it.

We decided to do a birthday party at home with our family.  I wanted the focus to be on Millie and the celebration to be with the people closest to her.  Let’s face it- the party is for the parents anyway- and we wanted to keep it for family.  I debated on throwing a huge bash- a HOORAY we kept the tiny human alive AND also survived ourselves party- but decided against it.

I purchased all the decorations on Amazon and at the Dollar Tree.  Since it was a morning party and a DONUT Grow Up theme it made for easy food options! We had donuts, fruit, and my hash brown casserole (recipe in upcoming blog post).

I bought “If You Give A Dog A Donut” book and had everyone sign the inside of it.  I thought this was a great way to have everyone’s sweet wishes for her all in one place.  One day (went she won’t chew it and try to rip out the pages) I will give it to her! I hope she thinks it is a special as I do!

What did you do for your child’s first birthday parties? I love to hear all the fun parties and fun themes people chose! It is such a special day.
