Has anyone started considering gifts for LO's first birthday? I have. I'm getting Mega Bloks (we're big Lego fans), the wooden alphabet blocks, and this.....

Arthur LOVES his Mega Blocks!

I have been making a wish list for family on Amazon with books and CDs I want Arthur to have. Other than that I haven't thought about it.

I already got Ellianna her gift back in September (I had Pottery Barn rewards that were expiring). I got her the pink kitchen set with the stove, fridge and sink. I have it all put away. I want to get her some pots and pans to go with it as well. She can use some of my wash clothes then as dish towels. I think it will be lots of fun to play kitchen with her Yep, I am enjoying this.

I haven't put much thought into it get, but now I really want to get him one of those activity blocks.. We're going small scale for his birthday this year, plus he'll likely get spoiled by grandparents.

Steph - they are crazy expensive. I actually was at a Pottery Barn Outlet in a time of year that they had a sale and we had rewards from purchasing our patio furniture from PB. Otherwise DH would have fallen over at the price. Of course, the cute pink wooden set is probably more for me. Kids would love any set. We had a hand me down (and it was handed down several times) for my boys but we got rid of it a while ago. I know sometimes you can find them at a consignment store or lots less than normal price. In addition, I am not purchasing all the little food containers. Elli loves playing with my old milk jug and egg carton. Add in there an icing container, etc. and she has lots of play foods. (I have to say my heart always longed for a little girl. Now I adore my boys and have played tons of Thomas the train, etc., but I am eating up this opportunity to do as many girly things as possible. At ages 9 and 11 my boys refuse to do anything remotely "girly". Beg as I do they will not go to see Frozen As little ones, I even bought my DS2 a cabbage patch doll, they had a play kitchen, etc. Didn't matter - all they wanted were trains, cars, and power rangers. )

Steph - Do you have any consignment baby stores near you, like Once Upon A Child? I was at the one near my house a few weeks ago, and I saw a play kitchen that was $15! It was in good condition and would have been $150+ new. They also had one of those Black & Decker play work benches with all the tools, and it was only $12. Those types of stores are definitely worth checking out!

Edit: Just saw that Kim posted the same advice, lol. Consignment stores rock!
