First, Never, Ever, have a baby on Christmas day. That's my advise and I'm sticking to it. First of all it involves calling your sister early Christmas morning and begging her to drive through a blizzard to pick up your other kids and take them home for the day without their getting to open more than one present they picked to bring with them. On the bright side I got to watch White Christmas during the birth. But on the down side age 7(in 4 days) was a Premie and that meant he got to stay in NICU for 3 weeks and I got to make daily trips and have Nazi nurses make sure I was waking up every two hours to pump 'liquid gold,' as they put it. I did not sleep for at least 4 months (time that baby actually got off all oxygen and monitor tubes) And also by Premie, I mean still larger than most full term babys currently being born in my neighborhood. The premie nurse that came by every month was awwed at her first ever baby that was over 30lbs before a year old. My son(s) wore size 6 diapers by 1 1/2 years and the neighbor boys age 3 are still in size 3. It's hard to find a rear facing car seat for over 20 lbs. Ok, off topic a bit. I tend to get bitter about my boys birthdays. If only one was a month earlier and the other a month later.
So, once again I do not recommend having a Christmas baby. It means that for a little while all the stress of preparing for Christmas changes to Stress about Birthday and Parties. Luckily, he doesn't seem to mind and thinks it's kind of cool and doesn't hold the getting Christmas presents for birthday thing against us yet, which he totally doesn't, he gets separate presents but you know... So today is his birthday party. I decided he was just too jumpy and excited to wait until after Christmas and he needed a diversion.
He had designed a birthday cake, pretty detailed, just too hard for me to pull off this time of year. Or maybe I should say, this year.
This is what I decided on. He wanted the little Christmas symbols on them somehow. He put the stars on, after breaking the first snowflake side thing.
