Holy cow! How can a year fly by so fast? The little guy is turning one shortly, and I'm unprepared. Do all second children get neglected like this? For our daughter's first birthday I made special invitations, she had three different cakes and two parties. A little overboard? Maybe, but it's a special day. Now, the second time around, I'm dragging my feet. Time to start planning.
At least I can check a few items off the list. We picked a date and time for the party and notified the relatives. Grandma volunteered to make the little guy's cake so the a messy cake face picture is all but guaranteed. I've written out most of the lunch menu.
I've also chosen a theme: firetrucks. I found an online retailer that specializes in 1st birthday supplies called 1st Wishes. They offer over 30 first birthday party themes, firetrucks included. See that great "Fun To Be 1" hat in the picture above? One of the many cute 1st Wishes birthday supplies! I'm thinking we definitely need the hat.
But, I'm lacking one huge component. The gift. We haven't bought him one yet. I need ideas. A little help, please. What is a must have gift for a one-year-old boy? I'd greatly appreciate any comments or advice.
