For Jacobi’s first birthday, we had a marvelous party and I don’t regret it one bit; it was a very special event for our family. I am a birthday person and highly value celebrating people, so I knew I wanted to make his second birthday special, but with limited time due to a full course and work schedule, I knew I wouldn’t be able to do anything too magnificent.
I decided to focus on what J loves, and plan his party around that. Well, he adores balloons – give this kid a balloon and he will be happy for the next two hours. And people — he adores his “Boppa” (grandpa), “Maca” (grandma), “Ona” (Aunt Norah) and other aunts, uncles and cousins – that was a definite given. Oh and berries, he loves berries.
