My Favorite Gift to Give at Baby Showers and Birthdays

There are two gifts that I love to give at baby showers and birthdays — clothes and books. The first is a need (and let’s be honest, shopping for tiny clothes is so much fun!). The second is a gift that I believe has the potential to keep on giving. One of my favorite things to do with my girls is read. We have a “library” (bookshelf) and it isn’t unusual for us to start our mornings and end our days curled up turning the pages of books. My hope is that my girls will always value literature the way they do now — that they will always find beauty in words.

This month, my littlest one will be turning two, and so far we are planning to gift her one toy and a couple of books. I had gotten her a Mickey Mouse shirt too but couldn’t wait to show her. (She asked to put it on immediately.)

Disney has a variety of books that make great gifts and are perfect for your little one’s library. Here are a few that are on my radar:

5 Magical Disney Vanities for Your Little Princess

My niece’s birthday is coming up and it’s a big one–she’s turning two, that magical age where baby turns into a little girl — and she is, of course, as my niece, one of the smartest and imaginative little girls I have ever met.

I love getting her presents, and for her birthday this year, I think there could be nothing more perfect than finding the perfect Disney vanity for her!

Our Favorite “Spanglish” Book

Since my husband and I are both Hispanic and live in Miami, we are trying our best to raise bilingual kids. It’s not easy since we are used to speaking English most of the time. My son is now at an age where he knows more English than Spanish and prefers to keep it that way. Every once in a while he will want to talk in Spanish but most of the time he refuses.

Easy but Awesome Birthday Card for a First-Time Dad

This past week I celebrated another birthday. It wasn’t a milestone number or a big party — it was simply turning 34. Although, there was one part of this birthday that set it apart from all the rest…so far.

It was my first birthday as a father. While I loved all the cards and gifts I received, without a doubt there was one that stood out above the rest.

The Cutest Farmer's Market Inspired Baby Shower

A few weeks ago, I was invited to attend the sweetest farmer’s market inspired baby shower for my friend Meghan. It was so lovely that I asked the hostess, Mackenzie of Honeycomb Blog, if I could share it here at Disney Baby, and thankfully she agreed. It was such a beautiful party, but simple as well, which is always something I love. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
