Yep, I did this last year. And yes, it was just as shameless then.
Stella's birthday is coming up -- April 14th, and no, I can't friggin' believe that she'll be TWO -- and many friends and family have asked what she'd like. Since this is the central source of information, here it is. This is by no means a hint. We do not need stuff, thankfully. But if you want to get something for the girl and are stuck, this is for you.
Size 2T clothes, particularly Spring and Summery stuff. Stuff she can play and get dirty in. And some warm, footed PJ's.
Size 5 or 6 shoes. Particularly sneakers or crocs or sandals.
A swimsuit and other summer staples.
Books are always welcome. Feel free to contact me if you're not sure whether she has something or not. Curious George is HUGE with her right now. Elmo is still her buddy, and she loves Richard Scarry books. She's obsessed with numbers and colors, as well.
And then there are toys. We'd prefer not to have stuffed animals, but Stella would love other items like a play stroller, building toys, anything that doesn't require batteries and make tons of noise. She loves drums and other musical equipment. She also loves bath toys, particularly water-proof books.
Art supplies. And by art supplies I mean coloring books, crayons, finger paints, drawing paper, activity books, etc. And, of course, expensive canvases and some good quality oil paints.
And music. We'd REALLY love some good kids' music, and have none. They Might Be Giants or The Barenaked Ladies or The Laurie Berkner Band would be great.
I think that's a good start. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. As always, your love is Stella's favorite thing anyway.
Now we return you back to your regularly scheduled blog.
