here's the answer to "what's in the baskets?" i always use some combination of my favorite baby notions. this is what went in this time around. first and foremost, my most favorite, the mysterio baby tee::
did i mention i love these? mysterio predicts the future career of your child. my friend meghann just gave birth to gus, a future donut tycoon. excellent! your little pumpkin could just as easily be a conspiracy nut, a monkey wrangler or a criminal mastermind, to name but a few!
next up? classic baby beads::
if i don't sound like too much of a geek saying so, these are a tactile delight! and the little ones love them too! wooden beads, non-toxic water based paints.
now for the books. this first one is the perfect gift for baby, so sweet and well written. you might want to leaf through it even if you don't have someone to buy it for....or maybe i'm just a tad sentimental. either way, someday, someone you know is going to have a baby and this is the book you should get for them::
and this one is just plain cute. how can you go wrong with a baby book of haikus? and its beautifully illustrated::
this one i toss into all of the boy baskets, but it also happens to be one of bella's personal favorites. very funny and precious at the same time (thanks for gifting it to us way back when beth!)::
i also included a burts baby bee starter pack. so there you have it. mysterio solved!!
