  • My fiance's birthday is coming up really soon. His first bday being a daddy.
    I was wondering if anyone had any creative ideas as to what our 5 month old daughter can "give/make" him for a birthday gift.
    I also don't know what kind of theme i can use that would kind of go along with being a new daddy.
    On his cake i was thinking about just putting
    "Happy Birthday Daddy" or "Happy Birthday Daddy Craig"
    not sure, dont want it to seem like IM calling him daddy, lol.
    Any ideas that could help?
    Maybe some fun games that could be held as well?
    Thanks for any help!!

  • For my husband's first birthday after our first child was born, I made him a framed image of our daughter's footprint and on top of that, I printed this poem. (So I made several pink footprints of our daugther's and let them dry, then I ran those through the printer with the poem centered on top of the footprint, picked the best looking one and framed it--does that make sense? )


    “Walk a little slower, Daddy,”
    Said a child so small.
    “I’m following in your footsteps
    And I don’t want to fall.

    Sometimes your steps are very fast,
    Sometimes they’re hard to see;
    So walk a little slower, Daddy,
    For you are leading me.

    Someday when I’m all grown up,
    You’re what I want to be;
    Then I will have a little child
    Who’ll want to follow me.

    And I would want to lead just right,
    And know that I was true;
    So walk a little slower, Daddy,
    For I must follow you.”

  • I'm creative but I'm not THAT creative. I found it on some website somewhere.
