Birthday Surprise...

I never really blogged about what Mark and I got Sloane for her birthday. We have been waiting to get a play kitchen for a while and finally felt like it was a good time. We don't have a lot of space in our house for "big" toys so they have to be well thought out for sure. ;) 

If it was up to me we would have already bought one for Wyatt when he turned one. Thank goodness Mark knew better. We waited...

Traveling to IKEA once a month we finally found one we were looking wasn't plastic and had the correct pieces/parts to "grow" with the child. This specific one has leg extenders to make the entire piece larger. It is made of solid wood but still has fun features. For a while my arguments against wood was the abilty to wipe off any marks the little's may leave. There aren't many surfaces of this item that a magic eraser won't take care of. ;) 

I would be lying if I said I also went a little over board with all the Melissa and Doug food/kitchen items as well. Sloane got the kitchen...Wyatt opened all the Mo and Doug food that was ever made. Ha! It was so fun and they LOVE LOVE LOVE playing with this kitchen. So much so that it actually was in our living room for a while before moving to Sloane's room. 

Then...for Sissy's b-day my BFF showed off her AMAZING sewing skills and made a apron for her! Look at those ruffles, those colors, just everything...NOT A LIE when I tell her she either needs to open an Etsy shop or teach me how to sew so I can open an Etsy shop in my free time

I am so happy we waited until this time to get the kitchen. Believe me purchasing items like this are much more of a "discussion" than probably necessary but oh well....glad it's done and they have a kitchen. Now...excuse me while I enjoy a breakfast of champions made by chef Wyatt and Sloaney. ;)


  1. OH my goodness, how fun! I love all the food items you got for the kitchen too, haha! And the aprons are adorable!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
