Last week was Bunny’s birthday and next week is the twins birthday. Yes… birthdays ten days apart are expensive!
What can you really get a 1 year old? (or two!)
So far we have bought them a dress each, a pram book and a Lamaze pram toy each, and… and..
I confess… That is about it so far.
My mum says my sister got a swiss roll with a candle in it for her first birthday and not a great deal else.
I don’t see the point in making much fuss. They won’t remember it. They can’t eat cake (and neither can I on my rubbish low iodine diet). Aside from which – their Christening cake, was also their birthday cake!
We have lots of Bunny’s noisy toys, from when she was a baby, hidden away in the twins’ wardrobe. There’s a walker, a cube that sings letters and numbers in French, a bus with the whole alphabet, an elephant and a lion whose tummy’s play lullabies when you spin them. There’s probably a lot more up there if I dared to look! Would it be stingy if we wrapped those up and gave them to the twins?
The only thing they really need is more clothes. I might have a browse of the net. Found a nice site the other day called AlexandAlexa, which sells designer baby clothes!
Can you believe, my not-quite-one, premature twins are now in age 18-24 month clothes?! My gorgeous little chubbies have super long legs and arms and chunky thighs! Must be all that milk!
I should also confess that I am a bit of a lazy mummy. I often don’t dress the twins in anything more exciting than a sleepsuit. But they just look so comfy! If it wasn’t for the school run, I probably wouldn’t ever take my onesie off either!
What would you buy for one year old twins?
Do you think it’s worth making a big deal out of?
