Christmas has been and gone a month now so I thought I would do a little break down of the best bits of Euna's haul. Now before I begin I cannot stress enough how strongly I felt about not spoiling Euna and WE didn't. No. We were very restrained. A stocking full of small items and her trike. Generous without going overboard. Giving good thoughtful gifts but without the gifts overtaking the other themes of the season.
Then THE ENTIRE WORLD BOUGHT HER PRESENTS AND SHOT ALL OUR GOOD INTENTIONS TO *&%$! I console us with the thoughts that firstly she's too young to be truly spoilt and secondly who am I to take away her Auntie's, Uncle's and grandparent's first opportunity for a thorough spoiling?
So what did she get? Well... Everything. But here are a few highlights from her haul that also works as a buying guide for babies of sorts...
1) Books. No one, at any age, can own enough books. No child can be spoilt with books. Never has it been uttered that little Emily was ruined by too many books. Books make memories. Books build imaginations. Books look nice on your shelves. Books are good. No one can go wrong buying books.
Then all of a sudden, just as I get the last toy tucked away and all of her drawers are bursting at the seems... Her birthday is merely weeks away and I need to think about what else could she possibly need?
She needs nothing. So for her birthday I plan to get my craft on and MAKE her something... Watch this space, I am Pintrest ahoy!
