Bits and Pieces...
We have (read 'me' really) gone a bit crazy lately, it's Button's first birthday in like 6 weeks... so I have used this as a good excuse to go out and buy lots of things; not good on the budget, but good for the baby:

So this is her official birthday present from us, but silly me never bothered to check the dimensions, and when Mr. C got it home over the weekend we both were in shock *grin*! Anyway, hubby is Mr. DIY himself, and we worked out where he can chop the legs off to make it accessible for her, and he said he can glue / screw them back on when she gets older! So now we just have to buy the extra's to make it work - chalk (whiteboard one side, chalkboard the other), and apparently you can get whiteboard crayons which are far superior to the markers for her age my neighbour said - so we'll be looking out for those as well. Hubby is also going to screw on a butterfly clip so we can hang paper up for her to paint as well... I was thinking ahead to winter with a Toddler in case you can't tell *grin*! WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN!?!
Then I found these, and as they have been on my wish list for her since Christmas, I just 'had to have them'... totally fell in love with them (they should be arriving this week, can you hear me drooling in anticipation *grin*):
