The countdown has started…

6 days until Clay's first first birthday party.

9 days until Clay's first birthday & first trip to the zoo.

11 days until Clay's 12 month checkup & Tennessee.

12 days until Clay's second first birthday party.

Phew. That makes me tired just typing that. We are going to be busy the next couple of weeks! There's lots going on around here so let's just get to it:

Party update:

I haven't gotten nearly as much done as I wanted to but at this point everything is planned, the work just has to be done.

I finished the invitations:

I made them in the Beautiful Mess app then just texted them to everyone.

The decorations are coming…

I'm almost done with the footballs for the monthly picture banner and the cans to hold utensils. After those two things are done, the rest should be fairly simple: putting pictures in frame, putting some footballs and “Clay's first birthday” on the backdrop.

Oh, you know, except the koozies. Because I have to make 20. And they're only half done. Erk.

Six. Days.

Weaning. Sleeping. Climbing.

The weaning is…well, not happening. I wanted to just do cold turkey but he's still in the infant classroom and I'm afraid that seeing the younger babies with their bottles will completely mess up the process. Oh, and in case you're wondering, the signs I was talking about a few weeks ago say that the 22nd and 26th of this month are the best days for weaning. So maybe?

The sleeping is…not happening consistently. Yuck.

The climbing is…happening on everything. He's wearing me out…we've definitely entered toddler life.

However, he is possibly the happiest baby I've ever met (I promise I'm not just saying that) and he eats SO well. Like to the point where I'm so confused about why he is still able to fit in 0-3 month onesies…

28 Days of Clay

To celebrate Clay's birthday I've been choosing my 28 favorite pictures of Clay and sharing one each day. Here's what I've got so far:

So there we have it. Now you're caught up on all things Clay 🙂
