I saw the idea online to start the birthday tradition of filling your child's room with balloons on their birthday. That way, when they wake up on their birthday they will know that it's their special day. I loved the idea & for $0.98 Henry woke up to a room full of balloons on his first birthday! Of course he called them "balls" and had fun throwing them around his room (& the rest of the house for the day). Eli saw them and immediately started lining them up to count them...nerd.
Happy 1st Birthday Little Man!
