Today is the little guy`s first birthday, and he had a super fun party. We had lots of fun food, and he had his first taste of cake, which he loved. He was super good and is lucky to have so many wonderful people in his life. I hope that the next year goes as well as the past year has.

Today is my last Monday as a SAHM, next week I will be back to work. I have been thinking all day how I don't think that I will be able to get everything done. Today I have done so much housework, which seems never ending, and next week I will have even less time. It makes me so nervous and anxious to know that 4 days a week I won't really have anytime to do housework between 10 hour days at work and commuting to and from work on the bus.

One more week till Oliver's first birthday. We went out and picked up some things today for the party. The treat bags are almost ready, and I am loving them. I put a puppet, a colouring book, a treat and cool crayon holders in each. Made by a local mom, http://buddingbabyboutique.weebly.com/crayon-holders.html and I think they are really fun :) So the plan is a carnival theme, and we have lots of fun planned. There is going to be homemade caramel corn, snow cones, doughnuts, chili cheese dogs. Toys and a video for the little ones and Carnival Games (Wii) for the adults. I'm super excited for his first birthday and I'm hoping all goes well :)

The responses are coming in from the invites we sent out and I was working on the treat bags today. It is so hard to believe that the Bubs is almost 1 year old. We sold his bassinet on kijiji today and I was really sad to see it go. It's silly, he hasn't used it since he was 3 months old and it was just taking up space, but it reminded me that he is not small anymore.

Yesterday was Oliver's first day at the sitters, and I couldn't have been happier. I spent the night before awake all night in pain, and being able to drop him off at the sitters and go to the walk in clinic without having to worry about him was awesome. Turns out I am having problems with my gallbladder, but at least I have medication now for when there is pain. Oliver had a wonderful time, and was super good. He seems to really enjoy going and playing with kids around his own age. I may not be looking forward to going back to work, but it makes it easier knowing that Oliver is in good hands and having fun. :)

So I sadly checked how long before I go back to work and timeanddate.com has let me know that there are 19 days. I feel so unprepared to go back and so sad that I won't be the one looking after my little one every day. At least I am going back 4 days a week to let me be with him 3 full days.

Oliver took a big step today on the path to walking. He tried for the first time today to actually stand without holding on to anything. He can't do it for very long, but every time he tried today he got a little better. I am so proud of the little guy! It is amazing to watch him as he learns things, even the smallest things. He is finally learning that he can put his hand into the snack trap and get out the treats within. He is understanding when I give him the spoon after I feed him that the bowl end belongs in his mouth. Lastly he has become an expert stair climber. I can't wait to see what new things he learns this week.
