Last year I had a really hard time thinking of anything I wanted for Christmas aside from a nice, new down comforter and some matching dishes (ha! So adult. Much boring!) but this year I can actually think of a few fun things! They're mostly pretty boring and adult still, but I guess that's what happens when you reach your mid-twenties. Just me?
There are a few things for Linden on here, too. But let's be real, they're really for me. He's too young to really care haha Cloth diapers to round out our stash, and a fun door jumper to help me get some work done. We can still say they're for him though, right?
Dear Santa, we've been really good this year!
1. BumGenius 4.0 FreeTime All-in-One Cloth Diapers: I really love our Flip Hybrids, but I'd love to add some AIOs to help keep things chugging along. The convenience of AIOs being just like disposables (plus you know, washing...) has me sold. // 2. Lenny Lamb "Summer" Wrap (Size M - 4.6m): I really want a woven wrap to add to our arsenal of babywearing gear. I love the versatility of wovens and I like the idea of back carrying, too. (The price is in Polish - Don't let that scare you if you're on the hunt for a woven yourself! They're super affordable!) // 3. Brother Serger: I don't really care what brand it is, but I'd love to have a serger so I can work on some baby sewing projects. The zig zag stitch on my sewing machine only offers so much help. // 4. Alva Baby Cloth Diaper Gift Card: Again, more cloth diapers to round out our stash. We have a good start with our Flips, but I need more to keep up with this heavy wetter! The price and prints on these just can't be beat. // 5. Duvet cover: I love our down comforter from Christmas last year, but one year and one co-sleeping baby later, it's a little dingy. Adding a bright white cover would perk it right up! // 6. Deep pocket sheets: Another boring adult thing. I'd love some cozy new deep pocket sheets to sleep on at night. I always forget to buy the deep pocket ones, argh! // 7. Sephora gift card: Mama needs some pampering, too! I feel guilty spending money on myself since Linden came along. The spare cash can always go to clothes for the boys or a rainy day fund. Having some guilt-free money to spend on that expensive foundation that I totally don't need would feel nice haha! // 8. Door jumper: Just a cute little door jumper for Linden to hop around is so mama can get some work done. How cute is this one?!
We're not the type to spoil at Christmas, but even so I can't really think of much to get for Linden. A couple of books, a few pieces of clothing, and a toy or two. What do you suggest for a 5 month old baby's first Christmas?! I'd love some ideas! xo
