If u buy anything else i would make sure its something that benefits u that u know they need... clothes, little bath sets, shoes, maybe a book even, toothbrush sets, maybe even a new blanket for the bed. I wouldnt buy a whole bunch of little random stuff just to up the present count.

I only buy my children two presents a piece. I will never spoil my children the way I was spoiled, because it's not really a blessing... it's a hinderance. I don't want them to feel like the world owes them something.



So yes. I think that's plenty.

I always loved getting little random things, lol. My LO really loves little things like that too. I do see your point though :o

I try so hard not to spoil LO. It's really hard for me but I think DH and I are doing good with it. That's the main reason why I wanted two children because I didn't want a spoiled only child.

I was rotten. Like to the core. It was a rude and serious wakeup call when I hit the real world :lol:



That's why I wanted two children, too. I was an only child and I think that really did have a lot to do with it.

I think I need to talk to DH about actually trying for a second... I'm so scared though! We wanted to be married for at least 4 years first but I got pregnant ONE MONTH after we got married....while on bc.... Now that LO is 3, it's great and we can have time to ourselves...I just can't imagine starting over but I think now's the best time due to our work situation. Plus, I've been getting bad baby fever lately, lol.

Personally if it was me, I would get them each one or 2 more thing, or maybe something to share. Just because they are still really young. But if you choose not to, I still think they are very lucky to get what they got!
