One of the things I've been most excited about since becoming a mom is picking out presents for my little one. I always thought it would be a fun way to reminisce on my time as a child and watch my little one enjoy all the things I use to enjoy along with other things I never had.
Alas, picking presents for Ethan has proven to be more challenging than I thought! So many options....so, so many options. And the age restrictions...seem a little strict to me. I tend to buy things that are a little out of his age range, but he seems to do just fine with them! Without further ado...here is what Ethan will be getting this year:
This is Ethan's big Santa present and I am beyond excited! I think he will love pushing this little cart around and filling it up with all of his toys. I was very tempted to get him a little grocery stand to go with it, but I think the cart will be the suffice for now regarding his age.
Of course he will need some food to go with his shopping cart! I think these will prove to be great learning tools as well.
Every little boy needs to be able to build and destroy! I got a set of 100 bloke for $10 at Wal-Mart a couple of months ago and can't wait to build him a big tower on Christmas morning.
Ethan and I have slowly been working on his letters and I think these flashcards will be amazing. I love that this set is on a ring (so no mess) and that they are made of thick cardboard (so he can play with them by himself too).
I've collected a few little cars, bathtub toys, and books to fill his stocking. One of the other things I'm planning on using for Christmas is the book exchange that has been floating around. You send one book to one child then mail out 6 letters to your mommy friends in hopes of getting 36 books for your kid if it all works out. If you would also like to participate leave a comment with your email and I will get you the information! I need 5 participants.
