Arlo is 51 weeks and 2 days old today, and you know what that means. How is my baby boy one next week?
Late last week, I sent out Arlo's birthday party invitations—which our friend Melanie was kind enough to design for us, after I spent 15 hours searching for something online that I loved. I had Zazzle print them on fancy paper, and voilà! Insanely cute invitations.
|I can't even handle it.|
I ordered custom decorations through Scout & Acadia on Etsy—bunting, garland, and confetti—and those arrived a couple days ago. Jean, the shop owner exceeded my expectations, and I'm dying to share her work with you—but it'll be more fun for you to see it all in action in Arlo's birthday party photos, so stay tuned for that.
Now, let's see what the ol' iPhone has for you this week. Okay, here's my kid feeding Scooter, having a nervous breakdown, eating his first mini-slice of pizza, and chewing on a toy while dancing on a piece of shiny wrapping paper:
|I love that they have each other.|
|"But I needed that 2-liter bottle! And Scooter and I were sharing that box of cereal I dumped!"|
|Nobody warned me that I'd cry just watching my child try new foods.|
|Need to fold a load of laundry? Give your kid a piece of shiny wrapping paper, and he'll be occupied for 45 minutes.|
