A One-Year-Old's Birthday Present




As Rhett is not yet one year old, I have no idea what one-year-olds like. So I took a guess: blocks. Trying to stick with more natural toys (although who are we kidding, everything Rhett has is plastic), I found some wooden blocks at Michael's and decoupaged pages from a Babar book onto it. Then whipped up a soft carrying case for the set. Voila! Happy birthday baby!

P.S. The book was purchased at the Unique Thrift Store. I am in LOVE with buying kids' books at that place. I bought 17 books for $10.03. Love me some Unique Thrift Store.

Perfect gift!! Thank you so much for coming to David's party and for the beautiful and creative gift. I don't know which I love more the bag or the blocks; they are both so well done. BTW, I forgot to give Rhett his little favor bag. It's nothing special, but I'll drop it off at your house sometime this week. Thank you again!!!
