We didn't host the largest bash of the century for our Baby DIVA's first birthday. I personally think that is silly. I planned her party as age appropriate for her. In between her naps. A very quick lunch (and ummm I introduced Baby DIVA to pizza and would you believe my petite thin child scarfed 2 whole pieces of cheese pizza all by herself?!? She has my skills!) followed by cake, gifts, a little play time and then down for a nap and party is over. I decorated the house with streamers that were at Baby DIVA's level and invited her sensory skills to kick in. I scattered balloons about the house on crawling level so that my Baby DIVA could engage in "chase the balloon". All in all it was a hit for Baby DIVA. And that is what is important. For HER to have fun at HER party.
And she did. And she had her first sugar followed by first sugar rush heathen child behavior. Awesome. No more sugar for her! LOL And she received a fabulous playhouse and tunnel as well as her very own couch from mom and dad. She digs it!
Happy Birthday Baby girl!!!
