The countdown has officially begun. My baby turns 1 in exactly 3 days! I cannot believe how quickly the time has FLOWN by! I mean, I can still remember being in labor and going to the doctor. Surely that wasn't a year ago? People weren't kidding when they say TIME FLIES!!!
We had a fairly busy weekend in preparation for JOE's birthday party next Saturday.
On Saturday, we went for our regular family Saturday morning walk. Here is JOE all bundled up.
|J called it her Eskimo suit. Whatever! I didn't want my baby to get cold :-).|
|After our walk, it was time for breakfast. JOE has some scrambled eggs. YUM!|
|Fall is in the air! In the 11-years since I have lived in the DMV area, I have never seen such beautiful fall colors. For the first time this year, I am not longing to go home to New England to experience the fall foliage.|
I made a couple of birthday DIY items this weekend.
These are the table weights to tie the balloons. Its a jungle themed party so I wanted to stay with the theme. I got a couple of bags of stones from the dollar store and used snack bags and a string. Easy!
These are going to be used for playing games. The kids will have the option to knock them down. Knock all cans, win a prize.
There's be 2 games. One is called "Knock 'em down" and the other is called "Add 'em up". For that one, they will be throwing the beanie bags I made into baskets. Each basket will have a position number. Score 10 or more points and win a prize.
I also did a couple other items for her birthday but those will be revealed in the After the Party birthday recap post.
UPDATE TO LAST WEEK'S POST:
Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes. JOE is doing MUCH MUCH better as you can see from the pics. J & I are new parents and are learning new things each day. JOE saw the doctor and we were able to get her something that would make her feel better.
Hope you all had an awesome weekend!
Here's to a blessed week!!!
