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!

Devan @ Accustomed Chaos said...

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.

Michelle @ The Parent Vortex said...

Love the Paul Frank wrapping paper!

Table4Five said...

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

Mikko is going to be a great big brother :)

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