Yes it's October & I'm thinking about Christmas. I've been thinking about it since June, really, but I've held it in until now. I am uber excited about Christmas this year! Christmas with a (almost) 1-year old is going to be so fun!!! I can't wait to show her all the Christmas lights & let her taste the yummy food that she will hopefully be able to eat at that point! We are still having a hard time with some table foods. She just doesn't have many teeth & seems to also have a sensitive gag reflex, so it's a slow process. But I'm excited for her to get some gifts & tear off the paper. She'll get to play with lots of family members that don't get to see her all the time & I think she'll love Christmas trees & snow! There is just so much to look forward to!!
And while the gifts part of the season is not the reason nor should it be the emphasis of that time, I still find myself looking forward to it because with Isis, there is just never an end to how excited I get about seeing her play with a new toy or learn a new skill with some new thing we introduced! Right now I'm excited about getting her some sort of toy she can sit & ride on! But I've been looking at Etsy & there are so many fabulous things & there's no way I will ever have enough money to get them, but I'm really considering doing as much of my Christmas shopping on Etsy as possible! So if I normally buy gifts for you, be ready!!!
Here's what I've been loving lately...
I love owls! This owl doll is so cute!
These ABC 123 letters & numbers would be so great for Isis!
Black & White felt shoes are adorable!!
I have high hopes for Isis' hair growing more after she turns 1, so these clips would be so cute when we need to pin back some bangs!
This is simple, but these car seat strap covers would be great in our car!!
I love this hat!! So cute & it'd keep her ears warm in the cold!
These petal shoes are so fancy!
I'd love some ISIS name blocks!
And finally, I think this Bag of Bags is so great with different colors & textures! Plus I can teach her how to play corn-hole later!!!
