What are the best 1st birthday wishes?
You would think that writing 1st birthday wishes for the 1-year-old boys and girls of family and friends is easy to do, but it isn't. And there's a very good reason for the difficulty: you may be focusing on the wrong recipient.
When we think about writing 1st birthday wishes, our thoughts naturally go straight to the birthday girl or boy, not the parents of this wonderful child. But that's not the right approach. It's not the child who will be reading your message.
One-year-old kids, unless they're geniuses, can't read, so you should really focus on Mom and Dad. As soon as you start checking out 1st birthday wishes, it's very important to ask yourself this question: will Mom and Dad like this 1st birthday message?
If you want to make it a little easier on yourself, pick 1st birthday wishes that best express just how cute, sweet, playful and unique this baby is to you. You can't go wrong with flattery. Every parent likes to hear that their child is the belle or beau of the ball.
You can also be funny, poking fun at all the changes junior has brought to the lives of his or her parents. A little laughter never hurt anyone, especially mothers and fathers who may still be deprived of sleep or laughter (or both).
My favorite 1st birthday wishes have a simple, yet deep message: enjoy your life from the get-go. That is probably the nicest wish you can give a baby just starting out in life, even if he or she can't understand a word you've written.
