My husband and I are both born and raised in Minnesota. However, my husband is currently stationed in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Our first born daughter in the 3rd grandchild for my parents, but the 1st grandchild for his parents.
My question is... how did you other military families who are stationed far away from family do the first birthday? We already have a trip planned to go home for a wedding two months AFTER she turns 1. So, we really don't want to take two trips home in that short of a period. However, both sides of the family want to celebrate her 1st birthday with us. I am just looking for some advice, because I am torn on what to do!
