Am I Insane?

So here it is, 1:20ish on July 11th and Erik has just taken our daughter into her bedroom for an afternoon nap. We are staying home for the most part today and just relaxing before he goes back for another 24 hour shift tomorrow!

As he's putting her down, you want to know what I am doing (well besides blogging) right now? Compiling a list of names and addresses of people to invite to her first birthday! Am I insane? It's almost 2 months away (September 5th) and I have the invites picked out (just need to order them), an idea of what I want her to wear, and now am trying to decide how big this shindig will be! For one, I LOVE to throw parties and plan them out. It is a lot of fun for me to do this, no matter how incredibly psycho stressed I get each and every time I throw a party! I should have went into party planning as a profession. And for the other's my baby girl's FIRST birthday - that's a big deal to me! She won't remember a thing - but I sure will! :)

Now I am thinking that this 1st birthday may be a bit bigger than most 1st birthdays because it's also my birthday that day too! I am trying to figure out the best time to invite people to Emily's party so others can stay for my party! I won't exactly HAVE a party for me...I would just like people to stay and have some drinks and laughs after all the kiddie stuff is done!

Well...back to planning for me! Oh the decisions one must make! :) I really am insane for planning this early aren't I????

You're not insane! I stressed over all three of Beth's birthdays and they've all been relatively small! I can't imagine throwing a big party - I'd have started two months ago.

Good luck!

LOL! No, you are not insane! Eli is just 2 weeks old and I am already getting ideas that I want for his first birthday! Jeff told me that I am crazy because he will not remember anything from it. But since it is his first, I want it to be special. Good Luck and have fun planning! I can't wait to hear about it and see pictures!
