Repito la misma foto de hace un año porque me encanta, porque así resumo ese día, con esa cara de felicidad extrema desde que me levante hasta la mañana siguiente cuando volvimos. Los nervios para mi no existieron, irradiaba alegría por todos los poros de mi cuerpo, ya no solo por lo que significaba ese día, sino por ser tan afortunados de tener a tanta gente que nos quería alrededor.
Ya dejo de ser pesada por hoy, que me he pasado🙈🙊
🎂The Double 1st Birthdays🎂
For me, the thought of organizing my son’s first birthday was overwhelming for many reasons and it also brought up a lot of strong emotions. How could my little baby be turning one already? Surely this couldn’t be so. I didn’t know if I was ready for my baby who I still cuddled and held on my lap, to grow up so soon. And yet there he was toddling about and now hosting his first birthday party. Along with the fear that my baby was growing up too quickly was also the anxiety that I somehow hadn’t done enough. Now that the first year was up, had I given him all the opportunities to learn what he needed as a baby? Did I remember to notice all the numerous little moments that I didn’t want to miss, such as his first words, his first smile?
Well unexpectedly there was another family just like ours setting up for their sons first birthday at the same place that they also registered for at the same time. At that moment of realization I was anger, confused, and distraught. I wasn’t sure how we both would end up handling this situation. Our babies were turning 1 for the very first time. You can imagine the frustrations and anxiety flowing through our bodies. I had know idea what kind of people the other party were. I was so afraid they would try to turn us away from our own party. Then they said that we could split the pavilion and we decided that because of the double booked parties we would have the office open up the kitchen which they did! And for the rest of the guests free pool admissions! It ended up being an amazingly wonderful day! Thank you so much to Sarah Hogan and her family for being so kind and it was great to be able to share our babies 1st birthday together!
