What a party it was. Like most first time Mom's, I've been thinking about my first child's birthday party ever since she turned 3 months old. Yes, January. In my defense, that was also when I returned to work so it was something pleasant for me to busy my mind with.
But the real party execution didn't go into effect until early September. Yes, about 2 months out, invitations were ordered so that I had to commit myself to this date. But even with all that planning and pre-planning, I still ended up staying up well past 2AM the night before the party putting finishing touches on the bigger stuff. And kept Ba (who usually goes to bed at 9PM) up with me!
The theme as Rubber Ducky. As the invitations read, "Rubber Ducky, You're the 1... To Make Mia's 1st Birthday So Much FUN!"
We knew that there was no way Mia would sit through a long drawn out present opening period. So we just let her open them as she was in the mood. As it turns out, she is her mother's daughter. She LOVED presents!
Mia's Rubber Ducky themed party also highlighted a duck pond filled with balloons. She had a rockin time and so did her guests. Aunt Stephanie, especially!
Not too happy to be exiting the duck pond
