Because we need to talk about First Birthday Presents.
Or presents for a one year old.
Our girl is 1!!
We have already had the first of what will be several birthday parties. I know, I know. She won’t even remember it blahblahblah, but we need to set a festive precedent. So we celebrated with our Chicago family and friends last weekend. Then Wednesday, on the big day, Pete and I are going to take her to our favorite bakery in Chicago and let her go to town on some cake. Then when we get back to Texas we will have her third and final fiesta there.
BUT our business today is what are good presents for a first birthday? We haven’t really gotten her any new toys for months, so I think we need to get an exciting item or two to commemorate this momentous occasion. So we were thinking this guy.
She is very very sneaky, she loves crawling under things, hiding in nooks and corners. So we thought she would enjoy this. Anyone have it? Reviews?
In that same vein we were thinking maybe getting this too? I really wanted to paint it up pretty for her. Yard time hiding fun.
And finally, because we aren’t going nuts (Jesus only got three presents for his birthday, and we are trying to raise Gracie JUST like Jesus), we were considering upping the adventure level in our family. With this.
Fun? Scary? Do babies like it?
Gracie is in an adorable (but awkward) age where she is on the move, but not quite walking. She wants to be entertained and see things and move around constantly. Which means I need to entertain her, show her things, and carry her around constantly. So my hope is some of this gear will excite her more than being in my arms and pointing at various things she would like me to sherpa her to go discover.
Do y’all have any other big ideas? Do y’all have any of these things? Are any of them any good?
How excited is everyone that Gracie is 1!?! Because I am. Like crazy excited.
