Dear Santa (and Grandma’s, aunts & uncles)

1 Aug

Okay I know, I know! Christmas is months away but I know of at least one Grandma who has already started a little Christmas shopping here and there.

I have decided to start a list as I think of and come across various things that Dominic will need, we will find practical or would be nice to have. I will continue to add to this list as I think of things.

Maybe if you get something for him you could comment below as a way to make sure others don’t get the same item. Don’t worry mommy & daddy won’t tell him what he is getting.

This year Christmas will be spent in Lennoxville as we were home last year. Don’t worry Grandma DeGrace we will arrange time for special Christmas time with you and next time it’s your turn. Beware he will be a walking machine by then! Let’s hope the Christmas tree stays up 😉

*Britax Marathon car seat  We will be buying this at Kiddytown should you wish to purchase a gift certificate towards it as it’s quite pricey. Really I don’t know who I am kidding though….who wants to buy a big boy carseat when there are toys! This link leads to the car seat through Toys R Us, but Kiddytown has better service and usually slightly cheaper.   This is the colour we are going to buy:

*Name Your Tune personalized cd – because really? Who wouldn’t love music that sings your name?!

*personalized lunch box (also from Name Your Tune) We really like the following: “Construction”, “Play Ball”, “Race Car”, “Train”


*personalized placemat (do you see a theme? Guess who it’s from? Yep….Name Your Tune) We really like the ones below. Note that we can always use 2 of these.
We are supporters of the Name Your Tune company as it entrepreuners!

*Lands End extra large zippered tote.  We prefer the bag from here due to its sturdiness and large inside pockets!
Colour: Natural/True Navy
Monogrammed with his name “Dominic”

*Mabels Labels
Playgroups, activities and fun outings have started and let’s face it…. as organized as mommy is stuff will still get misplaced. Probably best to get labels that say “Dominic Smith” rather then just Smith as there are alot of last names Smith registered in different activities.

*this is the “Colourful Ultimate Back to School Combo in the Blue Sky colour”

*bath toys – we really really really try to use BPA and PVC free as much as possible

*tot seat

*Sevi toys are awesome!!

*Snack storage – these food storage containers are safe and fun for those ‘real’ food snacks we will soon be taking to playgroups!
Nayla Natural Care is an online company started by a very sweet woman (Adam worked with her husband) and we like supporting her business

Cloth Diapers- we need bigger cloth diapers as he is growing fast!
*medium sizes booroi covers

*Gen Y Diaper Covers  – Bad Luck Club, Up All Night, Elephants

*Bummis Super Brite Diaper Covers

*Pocket Tot Pocket Diapers

Ergo Baby Carrier (okay this is more for mom and dad but needed for Baby!)  Daddy chose “Galaxy”

Little Tykes Little Champs Sports Centre 

*learning to walk toys such as:

Playskool Start Walk n Ride  – here are some examples of what they look like
