first birthday invites

Sniff. My baby is officially 11 months old! I can't believe it! I can't believe how far he has come as a little man and how much I've learned in the short months I've been a mother.

It's time to prepare for his birthday now!
(as I explained to my brother, who wondered how big of a deal his birthday was to me--Me: "It's like my wedding only for my baby...minus the budget" Slight exaggeration. But only slight.)

We're doing a teddy bear picnic theme, as he is known to many as little Bear--and I'm started the prep now.Of course I promised myself I would just order invites instead of making them myself, but I'm such a perfectionist and couldn't find EXACTLY what I had in predictable of me. But it was fun & not as time consuming as I thought it would be!
Here they are: (Please excuse the TERRIBLE pictures...two blogs and fifteen hobbies keep me too busy to work on all my pics are taken in 2seconds with my iphone... lame, I know)
Envelopes with paw-print&teddy stamps

So the first layer of the invite looks like above photo (tried to include a picture for every month, but it was too hard to decide!)Second layer:

and third layer (RSVP info) tied with ribbon (blanked out my info!)

So that is done! Now for party prep....I'll let you know how THAT goes!
Also, thanks to those who prayed Sunday, the performance was something that was hard but I was grateful for. It is not easy to cry on command that many times in a row&mean it! Actors are amazing. But I was humbled to get to 'be' this person for a short time. I will post a video of it soon. I had found out the week before, that the woman I was playing (see previous post) had passed away this January. What an amazing woman she was.

Much love!

PS I still use vinegar to condition my hair, and it's the only thing I clean his toys with!
