Birthday inspiration!

Even though I am emotionally NOT ready for Brady to turn ONE, I am more than thrilled about having a party for him. To celebrate his birth, celebrate his life and to celebrate that 'oh, hell yes! WE made it through the first year!!!

Every day we read, One Fish, Two Fish by Dr. Seuss. He laughs EVERYTIME I say, One fish, two fish....so THAT is our theme!

First things, first. Tell me these shoes are not freaking ADORABLE?
 Too bad I can't find anyone that had his size.

I wanted to have something as a keepsake because in our families, first birthdays are a big deal. So, each guest will write a message or something to him in, 'Happy Birthday To You!"

Adorable cupcakes. Kara's Party Ideas (great website for any kind of party!)

Love that little outfit! Too bad he has a fall birthday :)

Lots of Blue and Red!

I'm pretty excited! I need to get busy! I'm going to try to DIY what I can and though I have NO time, I'm hoping I get to! First Birthday's are pretty big in our families and I just cannot wait to share this special occasion with everyone!

 Then, I'm going to cry. Lots and lots of tears.

Those shoes are so cute- did you try contacting Converse to see if they can track some down for you? Would be worth an e-mail I think!

When you go to oldnavy.com there is a shoe store connected with them called piperlime (or something like that) and I BET they have his size in those shoes. Seriously....I have bought shoes online there for Tucker and they always have his size and I have seen those....

I love the idea..it will be too cute!

Those shoes are adorable! I love the idea of a Dr.. Seuss-themed party. Amy, I hope you get a lot more sleep in Brady's second year than in his first!

Love the ideas! Also, love the book idea. I may steal it for Joaquin. Can't believe he's almost a year old already!
