Party Planning!

Its been such a busy week - my sweet little kiddo came down with a nasty cold that landed us in the ER at 1 am last thursday. High fever, bad cough - turned out to be a respiratory virus (RSV), which sucks because there's no quick fix for it other than our usual cold comforts. (On top of that eating has become a real struggle for her/us which I didn't really want to detail on here but probably will later on. She's so tiny, dropping off the charts, so we've scheduled an appointment with a feeding and growth specialist at Seattle Children's Hospital. Can't wait to see what they say and what advice they give because we spent countless hours, foods, approaches, etc to get her to eat and its just not working). Hopefully she'll be on the mend soon!

While juggling all that I've also been busy planning her first birthday party! I can't believe she will be one soon, my heart hurts to leave the sweet baby months behind but I'm also looking forward to some of the new experiences, adventures and memories we will make with her as a toddler (and hopefully more sleep!). This year has been a whirlwind of discovery and joy and a deep love that I never ever imagined. I can't wait to see what the next will bring!
 
Put back to the party dets...decided to go with a carousel theme! Wasn't hard to decide - she loves her rocking horse and went just crazy over the carousel at Christmas. I'm a sucker for vintagey, girly things and when she was 3 months old we went to an awesome carousel exhibit at the museum in Idaho Falls - so all the ideas came together, voila, carousel!
 
Of course I found some cute ideas on pinterest so I've been busy getting the details and decorations worked out.
 
 
 
I snapped this photo of her last week to use in the invite. The outfit is a little big so its hard to see that its a romper and not just a shirt. Oh well, still pretty darn cute!

 
And here is a peek at some of the birthday projects I've been working on every spare minute I get (thus not blogging much):
 
 
 I will post the final details/how-to's and party photos after the party!
 
Can't wait for it all to come together! (HOPE it all comes together!)
