Every year for Christmas and her birthday, it’s a struggle to find ideas for others to get her. She always wants movies; but how many new movies are there each season? Not enough. This year has been super fun because she wants everything!! Every time a commercial comes on TV or she looks in the Toys R Us catalog, she pipes up with “I want that!” I love it.
Here’s a peek at some of the things she wants:
This is the one she wants the most. This is what she’s going to tell Santa that she wants. She loves it. She is obsessed with Mickey Mouse. This one dances and sings!!
You know the girl loves her Oreos, right? Only the real ones. Her special ed teacher knows this and so they use these to practice counting. Plus it’s great fine motor practice. Isn’t her teacher awesome? We’re getting these for our house too.
She loves her Zhu Zhu pets. She has about 5 of them; she’ll talk to them, play with them, lay them down for naps. I love watching her with her Zhu Zhus when she pretend plays. This is a new skill—pretending. I love, love, love to watch her pretend play. Jilly is on her list because “She’s so pink!” She’s also asking for the little beds and blankets that they have now. How cute is that?
Another item she wants that involves pretend play is this set of Disney princess dolls. I’ve always wanted to buy my little girl dolls, but she’s never been interested. Now she is!! I can totally see her up in her room, watching her princess movies, acting out the scenes with her dolls.
She also wants movies, movies, movies. Surprisingly, there are quite a few new ones coming out at Christmas this year. She’d be mad if she didn’t get a movie. When she’s opening presents, she’ll search through them to find the ones that look like movies and open those first. It’s adorable.
I can’t wait for Christmas this year. Olivia wanting all of these gifts is just one more milestone reached. It reminds me of how far she’s come. It makes me so happy.
