Happy Ten Months!

Good job, Zander, on surviving the first ten months of your life. It's been real, kiddo. (Sorry no pic, this is on the fly today.)

Matt and I have been talking about the first birthday thang. May 14, in case you forgot. Which also coincides with Mother's Day this year, ain't that nice? Zander will not care if he gets gifts or not on his birthday and he certainly doesn't NEED anything beyond diapers, wipes, and food. But we understand that it's fun to give gifts and people have been asking so to make things a bit easier, we made Zander an Amazon wishlist.

This isn't definitive, exhaustive, or all inclusive. If you want to get him something, get him whatever you want. Some of these items are just on there for the idea of the item, not because we/he want that very specific one. I put comments next to those.

And please, for the love Zander, no stuffed animals! I think we have a potential fire hazard with all the plush in his room. They may be cute but he rarely plays with them. He also does not need any baby dishes. Thanks to Jennifer, Lori, Dana, Laura, and Carol for giving us lots of that stuff already. We use it all the time.

Not on the Amazon list:
  • College money - I'm working on setting up Zander's MESP. It takes a little nest egg to start so as soon as the tax refund shows up (any day now!) I'll fill out the paperwork and send it in. At that point I think anyone can send a check directly to them as long as they have his account number. Meanwhile, Zander has his own savings account at our credit union. The account number for that is on a need to know basis so email me if you want to make a deposit.
  • Summer clothes, 12-18 mo aka 18 mo.
  • Fall/Winter clothes, 18-24 mo aka 24 mo aka 2T
2T? Did I just write that? T as in toddler? Omigod. My baby is going to be a toddler later this year.
