|E.V. loves her first birthday gifts, an Anywhere Chair and a blabla Clochette doll.|
We’ve been holding off on getting Emma Vance an Anywhere Chair (from Pottery Barn Kids, of course, due to my loyalties) until her first birthday. I wanted her to be able to climb up on it by herself before purchasing one, and seeing as how she can now climb both up onto and down off of the couch almost by herself (add those to my “Things to Worry About” list), it seemed an appropriate gift for her birthday.
Pottery Barn Kids offers three sizes of Anywhere chairs (My First, Regular and Oversized), and much like Goldilocks, three years of selling them day after day has taught me that the Regular size is just right for most kids. So I picked out a color that matches our living room, and after finally recovering from the birthday madness of last week, I finally put it together. (Her lovely play table still sits in its box in my foyer…any volunteers? No? Oookay… )
Needless to say she LOVES it. Like love-at-first-sight-loves-it. I’m not sure if it’s because it looks like Mommy and Daddy’s chairs, because it’s new and exciting, or because she finally has somewhere to sit other than the floor now, but she is obsessed.
Being the creative kid she already is (ha!), Emma Vance quickly discovered that there are so many wonderful things that you can do with a PBK Anywhere Chair besides just sit…
…like play “Mommy” to your baby doll and rock her to sleep.
Or, of course, lounge around with some light reading.
