My grandson, Oliver is 11 months old. Many of the babies in his playgroup are having birthdays. The parents rent a hall and invite all the families to the party. Everyone brings food. Yesterday we went to a first birthday where there were 14 babies and several older children. It was so much fun watching all the kids playing and interacting with each other. It’s great for the parents too! The babies especially loved playing with all the tissue paper from the gifts. We were there for three hours but everyone seemed reluctant to leave when it was over.
