Can you believe it?!
I sure can't.
It's gone by so quickly, and we've created so many fun and wonderful memories and traditions. And much more to come, I'm sure.
As some already know, I'm a huge fan of the 12 days of Christmas. I've loved doing this for Cam the past few years, and this year was no different.
We thought about different ideas for a theme and suddenly, it hit me! This is our last Christmas together before our baby girl comes...
So I thought we could make it a first time mommy and daddy theme slash our last Christmas as a family of two.
It was a little tricky trying to find gifts that were for him but also kinda for the baby. There are a few that are definitely just for him--more like father's day type gifts. Kind of a last little hurrah before she comes, ya know?
And here they are!
Day 1: Baby carrier
Day 2: Diaper Bag & Diaper Changer
|Cam made it pretty clear he would not be carrying around a floral diaper bag. So went online to a place called Diaper Dude where they specifically sell "Bags for Dads".|
|Seriously this one is a gem! This little book is just full of cute little sayings and advice for dads with daughters.|
Day 4: Four Onesies
|HAD to go with the 49er onesies.|
|Seriously? I want to melt.|
Day 5: Five Workout Items
|He's obsessed with "pop socks" right now.|
Day 7: Seven (Manly) Pamper Items
Day 8: A Wallet & Seven Coupons
|He's REALLY been in need of a new wallet. He's been drooling over these more modern type wallets, so I decided to try the HuMn brand out. Inside the wallet, I put 7 little coupons in that he can redeem at any time.|
Day 9: Holiday Treats
I don't have a picture of this... because I pretty much neglected to do it. #fail
But I did end up getting him some Peachie O's (his favorite candy). But it was not the lovely home baked goods I planned on making for him. He was completely fine about it, but I felt so bad! This Christmas was just so hectic I simply did not have the time to do it.
Day 10: $10 Gift Card to
|Pretty terrible, I know. I usually do not like to encourage fast food eating, but I seriously could not find a $10 gift card anywhere. But I guess it will come in handy on those days he forgets to make lunch for work.|
Day 11: Eleven "Open When"
|These are fun! Though we are having a baby, I hope to keep our dating alive. Another idea from Pinterest.|
