Nope.

My daughter picked out a gift FOR baby, but it's not getting wrapped. And she is going to make a birthday card for baby when I'm in labor.

She's spoiled enough - and 4 of the books I got from Scholastic she'll finally get to read (well, have read to her) when I'm in labor, so that's gift enough and I really don't think it needs to be from baby.

Not anything from the baby but we got her some busy stuff for when the baby comes home.

A few books
A board game
Shirt that says big sister on it

I still can't decide if we'll wrap it or not though.

The baby is getting a ballerina stuffed doll that matches Stella's favorite. We'll see if Stella will "give" it to her. Stella is getting a big sister onesie and book that will be wrapped and waiting at the hospital. Even though neither of the girls will actually get the concept, tI am hoping for a cute photo op.

I had originally planned to get them something, but not sure I'll have time to shop for anything before baby comes. I'm having a hard enough time planning what to buy for their xmas presents this year!!!!

We won't be doing any gifts. We did when for #1 when #2 was born and she didn't really seem to get what it was for.

I have birth day gifts for the kids wrapped and in my suitcase. They might get them while I'm in labor if they are there or after. Not sure, but the idea is to keep them entertained when needed.

Today I picked up a mini Lego set ($7) for each of the boys and then a Little People Cinderella that comes with a horse. Figured it will keep them busy for a bit if they get to come to the hospital (we are not sure they'll be able to with the limited amount of time between when the oldest gets home and when they need to be in bed in order to get up in time the next day).

Nope. I'm worried about Christmas on our budget as it is.

No....since Teegan is 7 I think he give me a pretty weird look if I told him a present was, "from the baby" I wanted to buy him a long sleeved big brother shirt but so far I haven't been able to find one!
