3rd Birthday Wishlist

Noah is going to be turning 3 in three weeks!  Part of me has already been thinking of him as a three year old while the other part of me can't believe he's this big and old!  We are throwing him a party at Gymboree with all his friends and we will be having a family celebration as well.  As a result, I'm sure he will be getting lots of fun new gifts.  I've had a few people ask me what he'd like, and my answer is always puzzles, Legos, play-doh, and that he loves trucks ;)  

While Noah doesn't "need" anything, there are a few things I wouldn't mind him getting.  Puzzles... he loves them, plain and simple.  I would love to add the Hape alphabet and number puzzles to our collection.  While Noah is a pro at counting, I'd like to work on his number recognition.  And it can't hurt to keep working on his letters too!  Also, now that he's three, I want to start teaching him how to play board games.  I used to love playing them when I was a kid and think it would be a super fun family activity.  I already picked up Chutes and Ladders for him and think Candy Land would be fun too!  Other than that, I'd like him to get gifts that encourage creativity and thinking.  I think that play-doh, blocks, and Legos do just that.  It's amazing how long he can sit and play with these things and I'm always impressed at what he creates!  And since books are always a great gift, I found one that I'm sure he will love... simply because it's about tractors :)

  7. We got that ABC puzzle for Mason's birthday and he loves it! He's so good at identifying the letters and we use it for color recognition too. It's great! I've been eyeing those blocks on Amazon for a while now. They're on Mason's Christmas list!
