I’m back! I know I haven’t posted in awhile but this mummy has been extremely busy. I truly missed the blogosphere and the blogging community these past weeks, the good news is I’m back to regular blog-posts (fingers crossed).
As most of you know we celebrated my son’s first birthday last month. As parents we all get invited to at least one children’s birthday a year and buying a gift that is age appropriate and that the child’s parent will appreciate can be a little tricky. Here are some of the great gifts baby E received for his birthday and it can give you an idea of what to buy the next time you are invited to a baby’s first birthday. These are in no particular order we loved all the gifts baby E got and we thank everyone for their thoughtful gifts.
I personally believe that you can never have enough cute outfits for your little one especially dressy ones for special events. It is best to buy size 2-3 if the baby is chunky or tall. The last thing you want is to buy clothes that are too small.
If you read my baby’s updates you would know that my son got his first tooth a few days shy of his first birthday. Teething toys are great for babies when they are teething. Buy such a gift if you are close to the family and know that their baby is a late teether like baby E.
To keep bath time entertaining for the little ones and keep them occupied.
Scooby doo stuffed toy
Most babies like stuffed toys; baby E actually picked Scooby doo himself even though he hasn’t watched a single Scooby doo episode.
My 123 mini library
It is a collection of mini books that are light for babies to hold and carry. This gift is great way to introduce numbers to young babies.
Colours and Shapes book
This is a lovely book with different colours and shapes. Books are always a wonderful gift regardless of age.
It is a singing book with some of our favourite children’s songs. It sings a different song every time you flip the page. It also has the option to mute it or reduce the volume, which is fantastic.
Fisher and Price 2 in 1 activity chime ball
This is one of E’s favourite toys now. It is an owl with three colourful balls inside that the baby can remove and play with. Baby E played with this so much that he actually misplaced one of the balls already.
Feeding high chair
We wanted to get baby E a feeding chair for the longest time and we are so grateful that he got one on his birthday that matches our home décor.
Blocks are a fantastic gift because it helps with eye and hand coordination and it also encourages creative thinking.
Happy Blocks Car
It has 6 large pieces, which makes it easy for one year olds to hold and play with .
Baby’s first bicycle
This was a gift from his grandfather, unfortunately baby E used about 2 times so far because we live in an apartment and there isn’t plenty of space.
A colourful baby comforter
Who doesn’t love comforters, right!
