Invites are out and we are gearing up for Portland's first birthday party in a little less than a month.
Of course the question on I keep getting from everyone who has RSVP'd is "what does Portland want or need?" Luckily he is very fortunate in that he has most of what he could ever want or need but I am all about celebrating our little guy and so I have come up with a list of great birthday ideas for any one year old!
N'Ice Caps Boys Sherpa Lined Micro Fleece Four Corner Ski Hat and Mitten Set // Winter will be here before we know it and our little guy will need all the gear to keep him warm and cozy. We scored a great snow suit set last year that he will get to use this year but he will need new hats and gloves this year. He has a big old head and monster mits.
Stride Rite Boys Made 2 Play Sneaker Winter Boot // Can't forget snow boots for stomping around outside in the snow! Matt is super excited to get outside and play with Portland in the snow...I say Portland will last all of two minutes before he's done but he sure will look cute in his boots.
Infantino Sensory Press and Stay Sensory Blocks // Portland is very into me building block towers for him and then knocking them down! I know he will be building his own towers soon enough and these will be perfect for him to do so.
Little Tikes Cozy Trucks // Do any of you other mamas remember these when you were a kiddo?! I certainly had one and loved it so I know my little guy will too. They have definitely changed the way the car looks and even have a truck option so it is more fancy? I don't know about you but I find the eyes and the mouth on the cars kind of creepy...
Little Tikes Swing // I have been wanting this since the beginning of summer...I am talking to you husband of mine. I am hoping this eventually makes it way to our back porch before Portland is off to college, he absolutely loves the swings and it would be nice just to step into our backyard for some swing time.
Baby Signing Time! // Portland loves these videos and we have been able to watch clips on YouTube but since he is really picking up on the signs and he hearts the main character, Rachel, I know he would adore watching the whole thing! I must admit, I already bought this and highly recommend the digital version so you can play videos where ever you are!
KidKraft Vintage Kitchen in Blue // On a trip to our Children's Museum, Portland lvoed playing with the play kitchen there and like most babies his age, he loves to open and slam cabinets and drawers and put things in them. This is perfect for him to play with now as well as grow into! Plus it is neutral and not too crazy gadget and color wise. Also, can't forget the accessories to go with it! Melissa & Doug Food Groups, Melissa & Doug Let's Play House! Wash and Dry Dish Set, Melissa & Doug Birthday Party Cake and Melissa & Doug Deluxe Wooden Kitchen Accessory Set.
