My nephew is actually turning two on December 7th but I've already bought him a birthday present (Leap Frog Tag Jr). I wanted to do something special for his Christmas present that will help him develop skills throughout the year if possible (maybe an activity book of sorts?) .
For the baby shower I made a diaper wreath that my sister and brother-in-law were so impressed with they decided not to use it and hang it up in the nursery room as decoration instead.For his 1st birthday I bought him some hard toys and hard books for entertainment and teething purposes. Last Christmas I filled a large box with wipes, diapers, a few books, a few movies, some small stuffed animals and various things for mom and dad to use (baby lotion and the like).
This is my sister's child and our other sister comes in to visit every month and she brings a new toy everytime. I don't have the budget for that so this time of the year is the only time he gets presents from me so I want it to be from the heart. Any ideas?
