I'm new here, not usually online but wanted to connect with other moms who have babies born Dec 2014. My LO was born the 28th of Dec...JUST after Christmas & now that the first birthday is coming I'm starting to stress a little. My husband & I really don't want to do the 'huge party' thing. But to have my immediate family, my husbands immediate family the baby's Godparents & a VERY few close friends would still be about 20-25 ppl & about 10 kids between friends/cousins..... I very much would like to avoid the whole renting a hall or restaurant scene. We live in an apt that just cannot accommodate that number & Grandparents can't really accommodate it either (Man do I wish we had our own house right about now!!!) Thus far our only plan is to have a party in January so that our LO isn't lumped in with Christmas... does anyone have any thoughts? Suggestions? Helpful advice? How are you all handling birthdays that are on top of Christmas? TIA for anything helpful!
