As the middle of September has arrived, I am getting eager to celebrate Claire's first birthday. Part of me feels like I did when I was a kid, eagering awaiting Christmas to come. I'm not sure why that is, but as special as she is to me, celebrating this first fast year is coming and I just can't wait! I never want to wish away days, but truly, I am just excited to share her first birthday with friends and family.
The planning process has had my mind buzzing for weeks. I browse and browse and browse and before I know it another day has gone by. First, I anticipated making all these great things but as it gets closer, I've decided maybe I was being too Martha Stewartish. I am not a perfect planner and never have been very good at throwing parties. Either way, we'll have a good time. I do know, we'll have BBQ pork and some sides, lots of cool decorations (that I and my friend are making), and hopefully a good crowd gathering for the day. I've not finished her outfit yet, but I'm hoping she will allow me to put something cute on her head-we'll see though, she's not a fan of headbands any more :-(
For the rest of this month, I guess I will keep making my lists and remaking them because that is what I am good at. Luckily, I hae no shortage of paper while at work, so I can jot down all kinds of things while patients sleep. Enjoy the cooler weather!
