  • Well for our first birthday parties we did an up close and personal party. We made a little cake for the baby alone. We sang at the dinner table and talked about how life changed and what we loved about that moment. We talked about the fun stuff our kid taught us. Sorry were boring, and in the long run we remember these things over the theme of the parties.

  • When DS turned 1, we had a birthday party for him at Pizza Hut. We didn't really have a theme. Just bright colors. All of our close friends and family came, about 40 people. We had a birthday cake and he got his own mini one. We ordered pop and pizza for everyone. It lasted about 2 hrs or so. It was fun.

  • Okay both good ideas! What are some age appropriate gifts? I am unsure what to buy him, he is pretty ahead in development.
