Forrest LOVES to twirl things, he has a few teether toys that have a little windmill kind of feature that he can twirl with his fingers and he can't get enough. So even though he is a little to young to learn letters and numbers, we thought this abacus set from Land of Not would be the perfect toy for now and later. The illustrations are much more amazing than any other set I've seen.
I just couldn't pass up this little indian bear I found in one of my new fave etsy shops. I plan on getting a blanket from the shop too, and perhaps the teepee pillow as well.. ah I just can't help myself, this shop is great and one of a kind. But, this bear is the perfect addition to the list.
Forrest loves books and even though we have so many I thought I could add 1 more. The Boy with the Pink Hair is a perfect edition. The illustrations are amazing and the message is one of my most favorites by far.
Little Sapling Toys, a toy shop fav of mine, has this adorable pineapple teether that is not only adorable but Forrest loves these and I think he will really love this one since it has little sprouts that he can chew on.
My heart tears in half thinking about Forrest walking in the future, but this cute vintage bus walker has helped ease the pain. Jake and I were looking for a more trendy walker that you can't find in stores and came across this adorable one. Its not only a walker but you can store toys in the front. I just can't get over the cute vision of Forrest using it. I know walking is a little far off, but we will need one eventually so why not.
Forrest LOVES to hit surfaces of things, and I mean loves. So while watching him hit the top of his Joovy Walker like it was the best thing to ever happen to him, we immediately started looking for a cute drum for Christmas. We found this Parum Pum set that comes with some other musical items that he can play with at a later date, but this drum will be perfect and I can't wait to see him play with it.
Oh and lastly, my hearts desire, a teepee. I knew, no matter what, that this will be Forrest's big gift this year. I LOVE the teepees from Moozle and now that I'm typing need to hurry up and order it soon since it isn't sold in the states. But I can't wait to get a garland and little lights to string around the top, and pillows and a faux fur rug to lay inside. I think when Forrest is crawling and hiding he will love playing in this thing and he will continue to grow and love it in different ways. I can't wait to find him reading in there, or letting his imagination go wild. Where I'm going to put the thing is a different story...
Jake and I will also find some cute and more useful things for his stocking (bath toys, onesies, teethers, drool bandana bibs, etc.) Stocking stuffers are always my favorite and I can't wait to come up with new fun things for Jake too, more on that later!
