We had the Bambinos birthday party on Saturday! It was a looooong, stressful week for Mama but they thoroughly enjoyed it. I slept only 2 hours Friday night/Saturday morning. I conceded that I would have to give up on a few ideas for decorations. Staying up until 4am was enough!
They are the best babies. They were about 2 hours overdue for their nap and although you could tell they were tired during cake, they didn't fuss at all. People always comment about how good they are; especially when they're tired.
Overall, it was a fun party and I'm so glad we went all out, but we will not be doing that again next year. We'll be sticking with family and only very close friends. I'm still trying to catch up on sleep! I intended to start decoration in November but hadn't mad very many decisions yet. Next time, I will start decorations earlier than the week of. And, I need to keep reminding myself, they won't remember this party and they don't even care. But, because I care and love them so much, I wanted to go big for this, to celebrate their first year of life.
The celebration continues tomorrow on their real birthday!
