How has it been 2 years already?
Time really does fly by when you have kids! Wish it would slow down during these cute years so we could enjoy more before the teen years! Haha.
As 2016 ended, I started to freak out a little because baby CJ’s birthday was coming up pretty quick and I had no idea what we would do for his birthday.
Being in a new place away from family, we weren’t sure about a party because since baby CJ does not attend daycare, there’s not much foreign baby interaction other than our neighbors, who are great by the way ;), and our friends from Arizona that have lived here for a couple years, already had plans to travel out of state on that weekend. So, planning a big birthday party was out of the question.
Husband and I brainstormed and he suggested going to Chuck E Cheese. I’m not particularly keen about the games because of all the germs, but I was considering it. If not that, I thought maybe just a little get together with cake and inviting our friendly neighbors would work so that baby CJ could play with his friends.
Alas, we decided to go to Chuck E Cheese after all. We invited our neighbors who baby CJ loves to play with. He had a really great time! He ran around and played on the machines. He didn’t care much for Chuck E, but he watched the show anyway.
Although this time we celebrated his birthday in the simplest way, he had tons of fun and he was wiped out after being there for a couple hours. I think his favorite part of the day was getting to play with all the balloons we got him!
I really wish it could have been more special and thought out like his first birthday, but I’m glad baby CJ got his cake fix and had fun playing with his friends!
How did you or how do you plan to celebrate your toddler’s birthday?
