You're growing up so fast. Wow, you're now 2 feet tall. Happy 1st birthday, big <boy, girl>.

Now that you're 1, I have some important advice for you: don’t eat the sand in the sandbox. You can do everything else. Happy 1st birthday!

Turning 1 means never having to say you’re sorry. Just cry and only stop when your Mom and Dad have forgiven you. Enjoy the good times, while they last!

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. Why is it so difficult? Because you may be focusing on the wrong recipient.

When we look at 1st birthday wishes, we think of the birthday girl or boy, not the parents of these wonderful children. 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).
