The Big 1st Birthday
The big first birthday is coming up, and I have found a great dress for her to wear in her pictures. I’m going to have her wear jean overalls for her second “style”. I am just taking her to Penny’s this time for basic portraits. I’m hoping to hire or find a photographer for action shots at the actual adoption. For a birthday party, I’m going with a pastel rainbow theme. I’m going to make the cake myself, and order pizza for our small group of guests. It’s going to be pretty simple: cake and presents. I’m also going to get a cheap, small baby pool and plastic balls for a little ball pit.
For the adoption, I want to go bigger. I’ve started designing “announcements”, and want to send them out to everyone. For those who are in the area, it will serve as an invitation. I want to have a big party, hopefully in a community center somewhere close to where most people live (far from me). I plan to have it catered, have a big cake, and… I don’t know what else! Any adoption party ideas??? I want to have it the Saturday after the actual adoption.
On actual adoption day, I just want to go out to dinner with local family and friends to celebrate.
I got the adoption paperwork in the mail, filled it out right away of course. Still waiting to hear from the adoption worker.
