Big brother gift


He picked this present out himself. This is how he poses with things if you ask him.


He also picked out the wrapping paper.




This is the other way he poses with things.


Tying the bow.


Satisfied with the inscription: "BABY."




Other preparations we're making:

Such a sweetie. : )
He did a lovely job and I adore the wrapping paper he picked out.

Aww, how sweet! I didn't think to have the girls pick out a gift for the baby, but I did get gifts from the baby to them. Maybe I will see if Suzi wants to make something for Robert. That would be a good "overtime" activity.

Whoops. I linked up 3 times. I was having linky issues, but I guess I didn't because I see triple of my Emma's Peep photo. Feel free to delete away.

What a great big borther to give his new baby sibling a gift! Love the gift, but that Paul Frank wrapping paper ROCKS! We are such Paul Frank freaks in this house.

Great wrapping paper! What a sweet big brother he is.

Do you have a hard time not kissing Mikko's cheeks all day? Man, he's a cutie! That's a sweet idea for him to get a gift for the new baby, must be getting more exciting by the day!

Awwwww. My daughter bought my son a present when he was in utero. She ended up sleeping with it every night - and still does to this day. We had to buy him another present. ;)

Mama Whimsy said...

What a sweet idea. I love he monkey paper!

I Thought I Knew Mama said...

I'm sure this was a step in making the baby on the way even more real to him!

Visiting from Natural Parents Network!

Oh, I live his first version of a posed photo! So cute! I hope to need to read through all these big sibling suggestions soon! I hope we'll be able to use them with Sasha. She's only 1½.

Also, the colors he chose are very nice! They go together very well!

Marilyn (A Lot of Loves) said...

Nice posing. :) I bet he will be very anxious for Baby to open his gift.

Betsy B. Honest said...

Aw, I LOVE helping my kids buy gifts for each other. Even if they choose really age-inappropriate toys that are clearly for themselves, it all works out because the one sibling has something "awesome" to share with the other.

Love the Paul Frank wrapping paper!

Table4Five said...

That is so sweet that he picked out a present for the baby!

That is SO cute! Also, my son had that toy & loved it. :)
