My sweet little Henry's first birthday is tomorrow and this week has just been a whirlwind of activity. We have been planning, making decoratins, organizing, and just plain celebrating our little man.
I had to be induced with Henry, but before Rob and I checked into the hospital we went out to dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant. I wanted to start a tradition of going to eat there each year with Henry to celebrate with just our immediate family. I know he will have family parties and eventually his friends over for parties, but I wanted this to be something we do with just us.
I met Rob and Henry at Scalis after work and we had the best time at dinner. Henry was a little tired because he's fighting a cold, but he held up really well. He had lots of noodles and got a big kick out of everyone making a big fuss out of him!
This weekend will be so much fun for us! My mom is coming up tonight to help us get ready for his party tomorrow. Tomorrow is his party and actual birthday. I can't wait to share all of those details with you.
A lot of people have asked me how I am emotionally handling my baby turning one and honestly, I am just really happy and proud of him and us. I did get a little choked up at dinner last night, but I am mainly just in awe of how incredibly blessed we are. I have LOVED becoming a mother and I think that Henry is the most perfect addition to our family. We absolutely had sleepless nights and our own struggles figuring things out, but he has fit in so well that I can't be sad he is getting older. He will always be my sweet baby, even when he is 30. ;)
Have a great wekeend friends!
