I went from finding out I was pregnant, to going into labor and now celebrating my one-year-old son’s birthday — all in a blink of an eye. Others warned me this would happen, but I never thought it would really happen. Why do these kids grow up so fast?
Today, Sebastian will be surrounded by loved ones and will eat ice cream cake for the first time. He is an ice cream lover and a fruit junkie like his mama. And to celebrate his very first birthday, we will have both available for our guests, along with his favorite dishes: moro de guandules con arroz and carne encebollada con ajies, and pasta with meatballs and tomato sauce.
Mini burgers (sliders) and hot dogs will also be available, since it is going to be a ball park theme. Sebastian will be sporting his NY Yankees outfit and infant cap. I can see the smiles on his face already as everyone tries to get him to take photos, or the serious face he makes when people try to get him to pay attention to them. We will have to wait and see what happens today. All I can say is I am excited to have everyone I love be able to join us, whether it is physically or in spirit.
I love you all, and thank you so much for helping me make this day special for my little guy.
