Freak Show Circus Theme First Birthday for Baby K

Freak Show Circus Theme First Birthday……

My Baby Boy recently turned one and while I was drawn to the adorable circus and carnival themed parties I saw online, they just lacked that pizzazz I wanted for my birthday boy.  Especially because I had to live up to the Great Gatsby Themed First Birthday we threw for his big sister!  I knew I wanted something masculine yet cute, but also unique and maybe even a bit edgy.  I brainstormed our favorite travel locations and my mind was instantly drawn to Coney Island with its delicious hot dogs and ice cream and, of course, the Barnum & Bailey Greatest Show on Earth.  And thus was born Baby K’s Freak Show Circus themed first birthday party…

Night Wean a Co-Sleeping Baby

Night Wean a Co-Sleeping Baby…My little baby boy has slept in my arms since the day he was born. It’s been the most beautiful, comforting and lovely experience to have this special time with him. During the day my attention is split between him and his toddler sister, so I felt like this one-on-one time was really good for him. But, all good things must come to an end and I decided it was time to night wean my co-sleeper…

Dinos and Donuts 2nd Birthday Party for Baby J

Dinos and Donuts 2nd Birthday Party…My little girl recently turned two and we threw her a Dinosaurs and Donuts party!  She absolutely loves dinosaurs, and I absolutely love doughnuts, so it was a perfect combination. And it wasn’t even that hard to throw a dinosaur party with a feminine vibe…

Batman, Gotham City, New York Theme Nursery for our New Baby Boy

Batman, Gotham City, New York Theme Nursery for our New Baby Boy…The baby may not be here yet (any day now, I’m 40 weeks and 2 days), but his Gotham City Batman nursery is ready and waiting!  When we found out we were having a boy and were discussing how to decorate the nursery, I said I wanted a New York City theme while my husband said Batman. The compromise was easy: Gotham City…

Turquoise Baby Sprinkle for Baby #2 (x 2!)

Turquoise Baby Sprinkle for Baby #2…When you have a second baby, you don’t have a Baby Shower but rather a Baby Sprinkle. You already have so much from Baby #1, you only need to be sprinkled with gifts rather than showered with gifts. Cute, right?  I have friends who live in two different parts of the country, so I actually had two baby sprinkles for Baby #2!  One was thrown by my loving husband at our house and the other by my two lovely girlfriends at the local community centre!  So much fun…
