Okay, so clearly people did not listen to me or my requests to not give sonja un-necessities, but I think we'll use most of what she got, and the stuff we hardly use I'll be able to sell to a consignment store when she outgrows it or I can donate it to another friend. She got a lot of clothes, new clothes, which is a little frustrating since there are SOOO many baby clothes already in the world, but they are cute clothes and I will reuse them for future kids and give them to friends with kids- so they will get reused. These were just the most notable gifts I thought people would like to see, I appreciate every thoughtful item she received so I don't want to sound negative. I just really appreciate it when people listen to my reuse/handmade/necessities requests for gifts. I want her to use everything she has, unlike lot of kids who have so much stuff they're ungrateful for it all. We're trying to teach Sonja that all resources are important and not to be wasted, that for every item she acquires something or someone had to sacrifice something to make it or for her to get it.
Hope you enjoyed Baby's First Christmas Gift Review.
