A few weeks ago, the always-fabulous Elizabeth from Chasin' Mason asked if Mac and I wanted to participate in a Birthday Gift Exchange with a few other bloggers that all have little ones turning two over the last/next month. Never one to back down from a chance to give/gift toys to a kiddo, we gladly signed up! We were absolutely thrilled to be paired up with one of my all-time favorite bloggers, Natasha from Schue Love and her adorable son Ethan. I knew I wanted to get Ethan something tried and true that Mac loved and I wanted him involved in the process, so I printed out pictures of five of his favorite toys (one, two, three, four, five) and asked him which one he wanted to give to Ethan. We talked a little about Ethan and his birthday and sang him the happy birthday song. I wish I would have got it on video - that would have been smart. Anyway, Mac knew immediately what he wanted to give Ethan - you'll have to head over to Natasha's blog to see what he chose and whether it was a hit with him.
Mac was lucky enough to be the recipient of an awesome birthday gift from the incredibly stylish duo of Jess and Sadie from Sadie Sky Boutique blog. Knowing Mac's love of all things truck, tractor and garbage truck, I have to say that they absolutely nailed his gift!
He was so excited to open it! I made him wait until after dinner one night and he spent the preceeding two hours pointing to the gift and saying, "Mac's present! Happy birthday! Two!"
As he was opening it, he kept making the most hilarious "ohhhh" face. Of course, he was not thrilled that I had the camera out, so he wouldn't even look in my direction, but it was adorable.
The second part of the gift was a book about garbage trucks called "I Stink"!
Mac thinks this book is hilarious and we've read it every single night since he opened it.
He loves the page where the truck burps.
Carporters and garbage trucks!
Talk about one happy boy!
Thank you so much, Sadie and Jess! You guys did such a great job picking out "boy toys" for Mac. We loved the card and the gifts! And I forgot to take a picture, but they even included a pretty pink hair bow for Mim from Jess's Etsy shop! That was so incredibly thoughtful and sweet of you guys! I just love this blogging community!
