    Um, I don't even remember for DD1, I just know that her 1st b-day part was absolutely crazy with people that showed up for it. We've done professional photos for both kids 1st b-day also.
    DD2's big gift was her Smart Trike which she loved. Since I'm a librarian a book (or books) are included with pretty much any gift as well so I'm sure we added to the collection both times, just can't remember which ones.

    We ended up being on our own with her that day as she was sick and everyone had to travel to be there so we cancelled. We planted our first tree in our house that day, bought her a wagon, and a special book.

    We were up at the cottage for her first birthday, so we went to the park in a near by town, ate some ice cream and went swimming... had her party either before or after. I think we got her a play kitchen, a red coupe car and some little people sets. Nothing really sentimental here

    I don't remember! Not even Jude's and that was only two years ago. Don't be too sad though about the loss of babyhood. one of the greatest joys in life is watching them grow...well other than three...be sad at three speaking as a mom officially out of babyhood having older kids is fantastic! No one says that, its seriously great.

    I was thinking of a time capsule. Like a box with her first outfit and things from 2013

    This. I love this book. I keep meaning to have her teacher sign it at the end of each year. I missed kindergarten but I think I will start with grade 1 and then it becomes a graduation gift.
