Today, July 10,2012, marks the 5 month anniversary of my sweet Jacob Austin being born still. I have been in my planner frame of mind for the past couple of weeks and for whatever reason have started trying to plan what I will do for Jacob's first birthday.
Yes, I know. February is SEVEN months away... but for some reason it made me feel better and kind of sad too at the same time.
I have been on Pinterest looking at first birthday party ideas for boys.
I have Googled Angel birthdays.
Either way I look I have decided that the world is not prepared for parents having to think about their child's birthday in Heaven.
As I looked through party websites and such I saw plates for girls that said little angel, the boys say little rebel - that won't work.
When you look up first birthdays, there are lots of cute photos for inspiration to take with your baby. I can't do that.
I have decided I want to have Jacob, my sweet Angel baby a normal first birthday party. The only thing normal though will be the cake and decorations. My sweet baby won't be in attendance at his party. These are some of the ideas I have found.
I am in love currently with blue elephants for his party!
I really want Jacob to have a sweet First Birthday Party Hat to sit on the table with his little cake. Oh how this brings tears to my eyes thinking about how he won't have pictures made wearing it and eating his cake. <3
I have also thought about having a Peter Rabbit Birthday.
This little rabbit cake has the bunny digging for carrots. :)
This would be the party hat that I'd get for a Peter Rabbit themed party.
Of course you know I love Rocking horses, after all Jake's headstone will be shaped like a rocking horse, so the thought did cross my mind to see what I could find party wise in Rocking horses.
As many things as I like, it's a good thing I have seven more months to finalize the details. It is so very hard to make decisions when it regards my precious angel baby. I want everything to be just right, just as it would be if he were here with me to celebrate his birthday.

5 Months is a long time to be without Jacob, I can only imagine what these next seven months will be like leading up to his One Year Anniversary in Heaven.
