I should have had all my shopping done by now, but I did not. I had been planning, researching, shopping for a lot of people, but one little very very important person on my list had only one gift, and it was a set of prints.. not really something she'll be playing with!
It's hard to shop for a baby who is happy with pretty much anything and already has a dozen beautiful wooden rattles that look like little sculptures. So I did the unthinkable for me this time of year and actually went into a toystore for inspiration. Lucky for me there are a number of very inspiring independent toystores near our home. I immediately saw lots of things CC will enjoy, like felt balls with chimes inside, a pink bilibo, black and white flash cards, fun board books and her own Ugly doll (she loves Sabrina's) with lots of places to grab and chew on. I even found something for Patrick and Sabrina (of course!).
