12-18 Month Old Gift Guide

10 awesome gift ideas for 12-18 month old toddlers.

Getting gifts for babies has always been a challenge for me. They don’t really have interests yet, like older kids, and it’s hard to know what toys are developmentally right for what age, unless you’re living and breathing it.

The Only Thing Worse Than a Sick Baby | One Hangry Mama

Oh wait, I’m sorry, did I say “baby” up there? I meant “husband.” There’s nothing worse than a sick husband. Continue Reading
