We celebrated my baby’s 1st birthday on Saturday despite it not actually being her birthday. My baby, Grace, will not turn one for another 8 days, but did that stop us? No. With my husband’s crazy work schedule, we had limited options for any sort of party. Grace’s birthday falls on November 5th, a Tuesday this year. My husband has to work the weekend before and the weekend after. So, after looking at our options, we decided that October 26th would work out the best. The party we “threw” (I’m using the terms party and threw loosely) was quite small.
