In exactly one month, balloons will be filled with helium, party hats will be placed upon heads, & close family will gather in our home! We will sing a happy birthday song, eat a yummy birthday cake, & party it up the whole day long! Our little Jett Jett is turning ONE, & we will be celebrating the first year of his sweet little life! A part of me doesn't want to believe that our little guy is already turning the big O-N-E, but the other part of me cannot think of anything more exciting than celebrating the little person who slipped into our lives & into our hearts, changing our world forever! So we will party, we will celebrate, we will have a day filled with love, all for the sake of honoring the past 365 days spent with the cutest, sweetest, smartest baby we've ever known!
But before a grand one year old birthday party takes place, there must be proper planning! There are invitations to be designed, party hats to be assembled, a cake to be ordered, decorations to be decided on...the list goes on & on! And while I have been known to get a little caught up & overwhelmed when planning a big event, I am determined to not get lost in the planning of my Jett Jett's birthday party. I don't want this party to be merely a task, something I zoom through & check. check. check. off my to-do list. No, I want to be present. I want to really live each moment of planning the only FIRST birthday party my Jett will ever have. I want each detail to be showered & covered in love. I want to truly enjoy the process of taking a bunch of paper & ribbons & bows & turning it into something special for my son!
So sure, my to-do list is HUGE. There is much to be done. I will have many late nights over the next few weeks making sure everything is just so! But I am going to savor it. I'm going to take time to let it all sink in. And during those late nights of assembling, running errands, & decorating for the big day, I will take time to remember the months, the weeks, & the days that we have been so blessed with to have this little boy in our lives!
With all of that said, I'd better get going. I've got a party to plan!!
