I have been emotional these last few day, and will probably continue to be emotional until Thursday. I cannot believe that my baby is turning ONE!! I don't know where the time has gone. Some days he still seems so little and then other days he seems like such a big boy. I can't look at pictures of his first few days right now because it makes me cry. I miss those days of tiny baby and I am trying to soak up these last few moments before his birthday.
We have been so busy around our house and I know this next week will be even busier. Clay is leaving for a guy's weekend trip today and Mom, Will, and I are traveling to a family wedding tomorrow. I still have a ton of things on my to do list for Will's party.
Here is an update on the Birthday Prep:
-A trip to Party City is planned to buy all of the party supplies. I have made my list and it is long!
-Clay made a cake and it wasn't pretty. I feel the need to be completely honest on this subject. My husband made a cake and icing from scratch by himself, and it tasted GREAT! That is when it all went down hill. It was not all his fault the cake was ugly because I tried to "help" him decorate it. Needless to say, we ordered a cake from Edgar's and we will not be getting our own cake baking reality show.
-My dad cut the wood for the centerpieces. I have put the base coat of paint on them. Hopefully, I can finish them up this weekend with Mom's help.
-I hope to put the favors together this weekend as well. They should be pretty easy.
-Will had his pictures made. They are amazing. Thanks again, Erin!
-There is not much more I can do until the day of the party. I hope that it goes well. I know Will won't remember, but I will, and I want it to be special for him.
For his actual birthday on Thursday, we are just going to have our families over to celebrate. I think I am going to get cupcakes and order pizza that day. Low stress so we can focus on our boy!
If I am not around the next couple of days, you will know why--we are going to be super busy!
