Hi. My DD is nearly 1 and need to think about a small party. It's not been on my mind because we've just lost a baby at 13 weeks... and now I want to try to distract myself. Don't want anything big cos it would just intimidate her - was thinking would just invite a couple of friends with their babies over. What sort of time do you think is best to hold first bday parties? My DD seems to have an odd sort of sleep pattern, so for her the best time would be lunchtime, but I know lots of babies sleep then. And what did other people do, just lay out lots of toys and let them crawl and explore? No point in anything scheduled, or too long, I guess.
Am not going overboard - planning on making a chocolate button cake/cupcakes and just having snacky food.
