It's only 6 months late but I just found this post in my drafts and still wanted to share...
Wow time has flown by. This boy is the best kid I know. So sweet and loving.
Yesterday we had a small birthday for him. Lots of attention with little decor.....actually there was no decor :(
I was having a major inner battle of feeling guilty I wasn't throwing this huge party I had planned to throw in Utah. I throw other kids birthday parties but not my own kid :( Problem is, I have everything still in storage, and I didn't know anyone well enough yet to invite to a party. I know he doesn't care, but I cared. It has been an adjustment emotionally for me and I simply didnt have it in me to go all out. So we just brought doughnuts to the park with some of our new friends and ended with cake and presents with my in laws. He was so happy the whole day and kept saying, "birfday" and "supise." He had no idea there wasn't paper straws, gift bags, or an activity. It was a HUGE difference than his 1st birthday party, but it didn't matter... he loved it anyways.
