I had a really tough time coming to terms with my little baby boy hitting this first major milestone. I was in deep denial that an entire year had gone by since I had held him in my arms for the first time. That, combined with the knowledge that I’d be heading back to work really effected me leading up to his big day. So, planning this party honestly helped me to feel some excitement about the whole thing. I’m so pleased with how it all turned out. The party, the people, and most of all, my first year of being a mommy to my baby.
Y’all. I wrote on my Instagram post yesterday all of the feels I had after experiencing my first Family Day with MY family. I just could not have asked for a better day to remind me of all that I have and how blessed I am! I know I should feel that way every day but in truth, this past year has been a blur of sleepless nights, exhausting days, and the learning curves of becoming a new parent. It’s been hard to live in the moment and really soak in all of the emotion.
I would be remiss if I didn’t give a shout out to my other half once in a while, and Valentine’s day seemed like a good excuse to do so.

Some of these suggestions can include the little ones but I think it’s still important to get that one on one time with your partner if you can! Here are my suggestions:
