So I'm beginning to think about charlotte's first birthday. It is the Monday before memorial day. I was planning on having a little party on memorial day weekend just to make it easier for grandparents who are traveling and on myself since I have to throw it all together, but then I realized neither grandparent will be working around that time anyway. I don't want to impose on the extended weekend for any friends we invite. Would you be annoyed by an invitation to a party on memorial day weekend? It won't be a kids party... More like a BBQ than anything else.

I'm questioning the idea of a party to begin with. Maybe I'm just feeling a little deflated because I know my dad isn't coming. But charlotte's stranger anxiety is kicking in and it might be too much for her. But I would feel so lame for not doing anything. Thoughts?

OMG I can not believe she is almost a year old! It wouldn't bother me to go to a b-day party on a holiday at all! If her stranger anxiety is too bad maybe just have a small close family only party and I'm sure others will understand.

Hey Angela! I was wondering if you were still around! Nice to see you.

You're telling me! I can't believe we are almost at one either. My time with her is going too too fast. I know it is a little early in her life to be saying that and I've still got a lot of time to spend with her, but still.

I don't see a problem with having it over Memorial Day weekend. My SIL has been having her son's bday party over that weekend so that we can drive up on our long weekend. Unless you know a lot of friends/family have other plans that weekend I'd go for it. At that age it's more for the adults anyways so it shouldn't matter that it's a bday party.

I would not worry about her stranger anxiety. Oliver had it too at that age. I think most 1 yr old do. As long as you and DH are there to hold her she will do just fine. I'm sure she will warm up to others after awhile too.

Thanks for your input ladies! We are definitely going to have a little party, probably over memorial day weekend. And my dad said he will probably come after all, so that will be nice.
