We would like to eventually get some child-sized furniture. These things are so expensive in stores and catalogs like Pottery Barn and Baby Style. There isn't any particular one we must have. Below are just some ideas

At pottery barn the chairs and bean bags are under
soft seating

Here is an example of simple table and chairs, but Much too expensive.

We can always use practical gifts.

The babies are drinking
Enfamil Next Step Lipil formula

They are in size Four Diapers.
We either use Pampers Cruisers or Huggies

We use Pampers Natural Aloe UNscented wipes.

Clothing Items

If you see any of the following you think the babies could use.

Lucia--12 months
Elliott--12-18 months
Mazie--9 months

A Pair of Jeans
Polo type top

Montasori Items

There are a few Montessori items I would love the babes to have. Below I put some web sites but anything like these items is fine. We only need one of these things, not a set of three.

Just a regular wooden tray, like you would serve breakfast in bed on.

The link below is for frames for tying, buttoning, buckling, etc. I think the babies would enjoy several of these.
If the link doesn't work the codes are 1001 through 1010.
The web site is Click on Order and then EPL.
dressing frames

Another Montessori item I think they'd like is a broom, dust pan, and hand broom.
I don't know how easy these are to find at a regular store.

The link below is for a floor cleaning set; it has three different types of brooms. The price is too much, but I thought it showed an idea.

At the site right below you can get a hand broom and dust pan for $7

Baking Items

I am in need of a few baking items. I only have one cookie sheet and one nine inch cake pan. And, with three children, it is clear I will need more of both.

Williams Sonoma Commercial-Quality Half-Sheet Pans
Half Sheet Cookie Pan

Professional Cake Commercial-Quality Pans, Round
Nine Inch Cake Pan

Some other ideas from Wms-Sonoma are
Glass bowls
a meat thermometer
an oven thermometer

We love to drink coffee all day everyday each morning. Our favorite is Caribou Coffee's Caribou blend ground for Gold Filters.

About two years ago Consumer Reports rated Caribou the best coffee bean. We think you might like it too.
