I'm not doing much for Kody's birthday. Honestly it just seems (to me) to be a bit much when they're only 1 year old to do a big party. Plus my DH is not into birthdays much, so I have gotten out of the habit of doing very much celebrating. We always do something for Ethan, though, he wouldn't be happy if we didn't celebrate his birthday!

I don't think it's a big deal to not celebrate much when they are a year. You will have plenty of years to celebrate big. We do a family party, but happen to have a pretty large, and overly involved, family. So it ends up being big anyway. But keeping it simple is fine too. No guilt allowed

Same with us! Maybe it's the whole second child thing, bc we went all out for my son. I feel a little guilty, but somewhat relieved bc it's cheaper! Is that horrible?!!

We aren't doing much at all. My MIL is turning 65 on the 24th, and my moms bday is the 19th......Lilah's is the 20th. We live 3-4 hrs away from our families, so we are going home (to my parents) for Lilah's birthday so we can celebrate everyone at the same time. My MIL always throws herself a big birthday party - which I find so strange, but whatever!

Thank you Kiliki... for my adorable signature!
