    We are going cmas shopping for LO on Sunday. OH says she doesn't need much!

    So far I have seen

    A bath toy that squirts
    A sit on toy from Mamas & Papas (this is aged from 9 months so figure it'll come in handy!)
    A ball pit from ELC
    Puppypal Violet

    He says that is more than enough, then she can have things she will need:

    Sleep Bag in next Size
    Sleepsuits
    Clothes

    I know it's her first xmas & she won't understand, but I see so much I want to get her! Thing he has got bee in his bonnet as I have ordered few tit bits off Ebay & he said are they for her stocking, I was like Ummm no they are for her advent calendar!!

    My LO was 6 months old last Christmas and I bought LOADS! Even though she didn't understand and wasn't a bit interested it was more fun for me to be honest.

    My oh sed I have a limit of £100, yeah right lol it's soon goes! What is it with men!? I prob won't spend too much more than that but I don't think 100 is that much these days, when some things cost 30 an 40 pound an item plus the obligatory Christmas outfit an pj's an stocking fillers! He dosnt have much through the yr apart from
    Clothes and the odd new toy that's all, so Christmas is the tome we stock up! An birthdays, just like when I was little :)

    Steve and I decided together that we wouldn't go mad on Fran. She will be spoilt enough by everyone else and it's her birthday a month after Christmas so don't want to run out of things to get her lol.

    We have got her 5 things:

    A mamas and papas rocking horse
    A bead maze
    Wooden pull along caterpillar
    Handmade rag doll
    Bath toy

    We might get her some clothes or something too though x

    DH is the same way...says LO won't remember so why bother...I originally said last year before he was born that I didn't want him spoiled so we were gonna get him only one nice gift, but I've totally broke that rule:dohh:
    In fact, I've gone a bit OTT already, but I'm trying to get him stuff he will "grow in to", well at least that is what I'm telling DH! Christmas is magical for children, might as well indulge if you can...but really we are living paycheck to paycheck, but have been buying pressies since Sept. If my husband knew what I've really got already, he would probably have a go lol
