A Seussical Birthday Party!

It may be 2 1/2 months late, but better late than never right??  On, May 13, 2011 God blessed us with the best gift ever and on May 13, 2012 that amazing little baby boy turned 1!  Amazing how fast a year can go by.  I remember his birthday.  Going swimming while realizing I was probably in labor.  Telling Mr. Fox to stop by Chic-Fil-A on the way to the hospital and then waiting 16 hours to meet him.  I remember the sleepless nights {a whole YEAR of them}, the long cries when nothing I could do seemed to work, the worrying when he first got sick.  The excitement in watching him roll over, sit up, crawl, and walk for the very first time.  Looking at him on his first birthday made all the ups and downs {especially the downs} so worth every second.

We have a ritual in our house where we always read a story before naptime and bedtime.  I have a slight obsession with Dr. Seuss.  Maybe it’s the rhyming or the funny words and characters, but I LOVE them.  I am pretty sure Mr. Small Fox is sick of hearing about Fox in Sox, all the different feet you meet, and if there are one or two fish and whether they are red or blue.  However, I don’t care…until he can pick out a book he can deal with it:).  So, to celebrate his first birthday I decided to put together a Dr. Suess themed birthday.

It started with Pinterest.  Thank.You.Jesus for Pinterest!  I got all my ideas from there and kept everything simple and fun.
