Cedar's First Birthday

Arrival Date January 12, 2020

Hello Hello Friends & Family 😊

We are so thankful that you have chosen to share in this joyous time with us! We are looking forward to another year ahead, and we appreciate your contributions towards Cedars first year celebration! I want to note that we are committed to encouraging nature centered play and a creatively open ended education in our home. This meaning that we allow for imagination to guide the way in the Waldorf style of following seasonal rhythms and that we appreciate simplicity and value multifunction with our toys, practicing the Montessori educational method. We believe in the heirloom quality of wooden toys and we are mindful of the fact that once a plastic toy is created, only to be played with by children for a small fraction of time, it is here on our Earth forever, crowding landfills and filling our oceans. With that being said, if you have an item in mind but are unsure and would like to ask, please do! We LOVE bringing toys into our home and have many items in mind that Cedar is currently showing interest in. Of course, we cannot turn away every plastic toy, because hey, this is modern day America and plastic is in our blood, (no pun intended!) We have a handful of these toys that we do enjoy and we rotate them often. We also always always appreciate hand me downs and second hand goods. A preloved Sesame Street or Baby Einstein DVD never hurt! Cedar is currently showing most interest in simple picture books, music & dance activities, puzzles, magnets and small part play. We are hoping to begin learning animal sounds & identification through play with the wooden animals listed below, and we have a stuffed insect along with felt play food collection that Cedar enjoys. We will also begin introducing color identification and matching via items below. Cedar is currently wearing a size 9/12 month in clothing, and is in need of a few pairs of two piece PJ’s to get through the winter (we are beginning pull ups for potty time, so two pieces are very convenient!) But, if clothing or toys aren’t what you’re looking for, we have included gift card options as well! A few for Home Depot & for JoAnnes because storage items are essential with kiddos and we also LOVE diy projects. Cedar also has a financial savings account and would absolutely appreciate contributions towards furthering education, or perhaps her first motor vehicle! We are beyond thankful for the presence of all who are sharing this time with us and we could not keep this boat afloat without you joining us along for the ride. Happy New Year to all of you 🥳
