The 2012 annual Lenox baby's first Christmas ornament is a classic baby rattle made of beautiful, creamy china. There are gold accents that coordinate with the gold hanging cord, plus pink and blue hearts and stars at the edges. A pink ribbon and a blue one are tied around the handle, and across the middle it says "Baby's First Christmas 2012."
Award-winning author and illustrator Tomie de Paola helps babies learn the traditions and symbols that make the holiday season so special in this beautiful book. My First Christmas is a wonderful book for newborns, but older babies will also enjoy the vivid illustrations and toddlers will enjoy relating the traditions in the book to those of their own family.
A bib is an easy way to add some holiday cheer to baby's wardrobe! This sweet bib from Carters is soft, off-white cotton trimmed with bright red. A happy little Santa stands behind his sleigh full of gifts, and a super-cute reindeer sits in the driver's seat. Silver snowflakes are scattered across the bib, and the whole look is completed with red "Baby's First Christmas" embroidery across the bottom. At less than $10, this is a great way to get baby into the Christmas spirit.
This 2012 Hallmark Christmas ornament is just a little bit different from the others available, and that's exactly why I love it! The ornament is shaped like a diaper bag with baby gear popping out of it. There's a little toy giraffe and a couple of bottles visible to help you remember those hectic but amazing first months with your baby. The shoulder strap of the bag says 2012 on it.
Parents will love this holiday CD just as much as babies do, because the songs are all lullaby versions of Christmas rock songs from your favorite bands. Listen to soothing songs from Pearl Jam, The Pretenders, Smashing Pumpkins, The Ramones and more. It's the perfect soundtrack for baby's first Christmas!
