I've already started thinking about (okay and planning and buying for) Copelands 1st!
I can't believe my little guy, who I had only 8 short months ago is turning 1 this summer!
I remember that morning in the hospital like it was yesterday.
The first nights home with him like it happened last night.
He has grown so much, is learning a ton and is a complete joy in our lives.
We cannot to wait to celebrate him and his big day!
If you know me, you know it takes me a long time to plan things.
It took me 8+ months to plan my wedding and so naturally I already started planning
Copelands 1st birthday which is still 2 months away!
I am so excited about it and sad at the same time.
I'm sure all mothers would agree, the first year went by too fast.
When I first started brainstorming ideas for his birthday I was set
on a circus themed party, but thought it would be pretty expensive
to pull everything off that I wanted to. We definitely don't want to
break the bank for a 1 year olds birthday.
I then started thinking about Copeland and his super cute personality.
What would he love and what would make him happy?
He LOVES music. He will clap and wiggle every time there is music on and I start dancing.
He LOVES colors! His favorite books are super bright and full of colorful things.
He LOVES food and yes I even let him try some frosting off a cupcake and he fell hard for it.
And he is pretty obsessed with his toy animals!
That's when it hit me, my son is total Party Animal ;)
I'll be able to use some cute plastic toy animals (in party hats obvi.)
and lots of balloons and tissue paper for decorating!
It will be colorful, bright, happy and fun!
Just like Copeland :)
We are planning on having it in the backyard with some fun backyard games and a BBQ.
I'm also planning on some pretty cheap DIY projects for it that I can't wait to share!

I will be making my "Get to Know Me" video this week so if you've got a question,
leave it in the comments below and I will be sure to answer it! I can't wait to see
what you guys want to know! :)
