My son MJ turned one on Friday (I can’t believe it) and we were excited to get a chance to celebrate him. As a December baby, his birthday is at risk for the inevitable Christmas merger, but I am determined to try and keep them separate for as long as I can. No joint birthday-Christmas presents for him!
In the spirit of giving him his shine, we threw him a football-themed birthday party. I wouldn’t say MJ is particularly fond of football (or any sport, for that matter), but I’ve always wanted to throw a party like this, and hey, he’s not going to remember it anyway.
But it meant that he got to wear a super cute custom-made varsity jacket, and shove some cake in his face, so I think he enjoyed himself.
