Birthday Ideas


Okay, so thank you for your advice on purfume.  I need more advice.  Jane is about to turn one.  It's an excuse for me to get a few things for her (us).  What are some good toys that 1 year olds like?  I know a few of you moms have your favorites and I'd like to know.  Also, does anyone know of a good CD kids like to listen to while traveling in the car?  Jane and I are in the car a long time for my commute to work and I'd like to make it more pleasant for her? What do you think of Raffi?  Or is he old school?  Any advice out there?

There is this great toy that I have... it has balls that are blown thru a tube and pop up like pop corn. Even the bigger kids like it! I'll show it to you at Thanksgiving (got it at Wal-Mart). As far as music? My kids like the "Little People" CDs that they sell (where else) at Wal-Mart in the baby section. Also... check out Elizabeth Mitchell on itunes (especially "You Are My Sunshine). She is much more mellow and WAY less annoying than other kid music. Good luck!

I cannot even believe JAne is 1!! That is CRAZY. I know her party will be amazing, she has YOU as a momma! My ideas for gifts..A Ball popper, you can find this at Target, all kids LOVE it. Also, the music table (also at target) one of those you can stand up to at it has all this different musical instruments on it. I hope I am making sense. I will describe them better when I see you next. I have no advice on the music because Dax prefers Leona Lewis and Fergie :) Can't wait to see you next Friday, PARTY ON! Love ya Tiff!

Okay I'm lost on toy ideas myself but Raffi--CLASSIC!!! I have a bunch of his records from when I was a kid and my dad is digitizing the LP's for me so Hallie and I can rock out to Baby Beluga. So fun! Happy B-day baby J!!!

Tiffany! I've been wanting some kids music for long car rides as well. If you find any you like, will you let me know? Thanks!

Raffi is awesome! Daisy loves the toothbrush song. Also, I found a CD at Walmart that is all kids songs set a little faster to get them moving. They're a lot more fun and upbeat and Daisy loves doing all the actions. Plus, you can never go wrong with the Children's Songbook!

Tiff, Josh and I like Laurie Berkner...she's fun and we like to sing along too. Some of her songs, well, suck, but don't all artists have a few of those? :) In general, she's great.

Hey Tiff,
The Little People first dollhouse is super cute and fun. Avery still loves it. She got it for her 1st bday too.
