Rowan's First Birthday Party!!!
(a.k.a., "showing up every other mom")
So I'll admit, I've been planning the kid's birthday party for about 6 months. And thank god for Pinterest, or else my desk at work would be covered in rainbows and there would be no ink left in the printer.
The following will be a series of posts documenting the lengths to which I went to plan an extravagant birthday party for my 1 year-old.

So because 1 year-olds (or 6 month-olds, when I started) don't have favorite things, I have to choose for him. MY favorite toy for him is the Xylophone I gave him for Christmas. It's wooden and colorful and simple. And not too loud.
So I thought Music or Musical Instruments could be a cool theme. Maybe a Xylophone cake!
Then I though, "What's the best thing about this toy?" The colors! Rainbows! And rainbows make a way better birthday theme!
Plus, I've been meaning to try this:
And the more I played online, the more excited I got!
Most of these things won't actually happen, but hopefully the rainbow effect will be clear!
