We only do actual parties for the first birthday. Generally we have low key events and we let each kid decide how they would like to celebrate (and pray they don't say Chuck E Cheese).

The first birthday is so special, though. It's not about monetary gifts; it's about celebrating the gift of life.

We've been married 13 years, and over time we have grown distant from George's family (our kids do not know them). Also, we have spent less and less time with friends as our family has grown and our responsibilities have taken more time.

I am only planning to have my doula, two other friends, and my parents attend. It's going to be the biggest mess of pink you've ever seen, though. We waited 7 years for Pippa, and she's getting the whole 9 yards.

Maybe Melanie can give me some ideas. Mason's party was adorable!
