What I’m Getting My 15 Month Old For Christmas This Year

What I'm Getting My 15 Month Old For Christmas This Year

Well, technically, he’s not 15 months old yet – he’ll be 15 months on Christmas day!

My husband and I debated whether or not to even get Luca Christmas gifts (especially after reading this.) He has so much already, and the last thing he really needs is more toys! But, alas, we are having two Christmas celebrations – one in New Jersey at my apartment and one at my parents’ home, where we’ll all actually be for Christmas. Since Luca actually loves unwrapping things and general excitement, we couldn’t resist getting him a few gifts.

When thinking about what to get him, I tried to think of development toys, toys he plays with when he’s not at home and loves (like at classes, etc), and things to complement toys he already has or loves.

Besides, this is the first Christmas that he can actually stand and help with present gifting and opening, so we wanted to get him some things.

Foam Building Blocks & Climb and Crawl Set

What I'm Getting My 15 Month Old For Christmas This Year

There is a play room in our building and every time we go down there, he goes crazy for these blocks and crawling pieces. They’re safe, had a color that matches our living room colors, and they keep him occupied for a long time! We actually already gave him these, because they were just taking up too much room in my office, haha, and we figured, he’ll get enough on Christmas!

Buy the blocks here.

Grocery Cart

Luca loves his play kitchen (he spends a lot of time there!) and I wanted to get more items for the kitchen and keep the same theme going, so I got him a grocery cart.

Buy it here.

Wooden Play Fridge Food

Again, to go along with his play kitchen! I love this brand.

Buy it here.

Play Grocery Store Staples

This will be so cute for his shopping cart!

Buy it here.

Safari Knob Puzzle

Luca doesn’t have any puzzles and this one is perfect for his capabilities right now. Hopefully if he likes it, I can buy him more challenging puzzles – I loved puzzles as a kid!

Buy it here.

What are you getting your little ones for Christmas this year?

the soup that broke the internet! 😜🥣haha, just kidding, but after posting this on stories, my DMs were flooded with, "share the recipe!" and then dozens of you made the soup solely based off my story videos (which is why I shared it!)⁣ 👏🏼

I'm still deep in the newborn fog to take proper photos and build an SEO-friendly blog post (it's an hours-long process), so I'm sharing it here in the meantime - just save it to refer back to! you're going to want to make this alllll winter long.⁣ ❄️

potato and brussels sprouts white bean soup w/ or w/o chicken sausage⁣ 👇🏼
serves 4-6

ingredients⁣
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
1/2 red onion, diced⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
2 carrots, diced⁣
1 large celery rib, diced⁣
1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed⁣
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary⁣
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme⁣
4 cups vegetable broth (I'm using @bonafideprovisions and it's honestly a game-changer! code INSPIRALIZED for 15% off!)⁣
salt and pepper⁣
1 1/2 pound bag creamer potatoes, halved⁣
1 pound chicken sausage, sliced⁣
12 ounces shredded brussels sprouts⁣
shredded Parmesan cheese (I'm loving @foragerproject's vegan Parmesan shreds)⁣
red pepper flakes to garnish⁣

directions⁣
heat half the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. add the onion, garlic, carrots, and celery and cook for 5 minutes or until onions are translucent. add the cannellini beans, rosemary, thyme, and stir. add the broth, 2 cups water, and season generously with salt and pepper. bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. use an immersion blender to blend the soup. add the potatoes, bring back to a boil, and reduce heat to a medium-simmer and let cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.⁣

while potatoes cook, heat the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat. add the chicken sausage and cook until browned. add the brussels sprouts, season with salt and pepper, and cook until sprouts are tender and chicken is cooked through. keep aside. if you're vegetarian, just simply omit chicken sausage.⁣

once potatoes are done, add the chicken and sprouts to the soup, stir, and serve. top with cheese and red pepper flakes.
