  • Probably more than I am intending to right now. I know she won't remember this Christmas, but I'm always thinking about the pictures she'll be looking at in the future. I also have to keep in mind that relatives are going to shower her with gifts, also. I'm aiming at about 5 + stocking stuffers, but I usually go overboard at Christmas with everyone anyways, so who knows?

  • We gave him and then them 1. They got things from others. Plus tons of gifts isn't how either of us were raised. Now, the grandparents they get the kids the big gifts, some clothing. When our kids are older we also decided with the whole Santa thing, 1 gift will come from
    Santa and the rest from us. They need to know mommy and daddy gave them their things, not think everything came from santa.

  • I remember for my son, I went to Toys R Us and bought a bunch of things he was going to need anyway. We even wrapped diapers. It was more so the other kids wouldn't think Santa forgot the little one. A few toys, clothes, teething things, a sippy cup, wipes, diapers, etc...
