finley is turning 9 months old this week (what?!), and so i’m starting to think about first birthday ideas. (no, not too soon.)
i’m debating between doing a “favorite book” theme, or doing away with a theme and just making everything cute and pretty. i’ve never been a big theme-er (not really my style.) but i figure once you become a mom that’s one of the things you can get away with – theme-ing things. my idea is to theme her birthday around her favorite book from the first year of her life. (chicka chicka boom boom). i also like this because we could potentially continue it every year, and do a birthday party centered around her favorite book from the year of however old she is.
but then i’m like, is this stupid? corny? hard to keep up with? will she roll her eyes and just be like “CAAAAAAKE!!!!” or will she like it and think it’s fun. will i do like three book themes in a row and stall out and then regret ever starting it? am i thinking way too hard about this? (YES.)
what do you think?! i can name at least 18 people who read this blog so i expect you to comment. no, i will not take your advice (definitely not my style.) but maybe i will! you never know.
