Having many children already, I do have so many items that it has been difficult trying to figure out what to buy Lauren for her first birthday. Baby clothing is just so adorable though, so of course I have been checking them out. Even if I do have tons of hand-me-down clothing, new stuff is always great! I love baby girls clothes....they are just so stinking cute! A year ago I just had to get something new for that adorable "coming home" photo, and now for her first birthday. I can not wait to see Lauren in her first birthday outfit and her little crown I picked up for her.
I am glad I did some online shopping early. Everything for Lauren's birthday was bought online, well except a little something I picked up at the hospital gift shop yesterday. I am hoping I get to leave the hospital some tomorrow so I can actually see Lauren on her birthday. Kennedy has spent many holidays in the hospital, but it will be hard missing a "first" holiday. On the same hand I would like Kennedy included too, so I am thinking of asking if they have some decorations, or at least buying some balloons from the gift shop and having her come to the hospital for a little family party. It wont be the same, but at least it will be something special for her. So if she ends up partying at the hospital I at least have a little gift here for her!
Happy first birthday Lauren....Mommy loves you!
