This year, I have been looking extra hard at ornaments, especially for a "Baby's 1st Christmas" one. I have my own first Christmas ornament still. It is a metal angel with my name engraved on one side and the year I was born on the other. It even has my birth weight and height. I have wanted something like this for my own baby and now that I have the baby, I am missing the ornament.
Seriously, all you stores that want to rip me off and take advantage of me during the holidays, I am ready. I will pay whatever you want me to for a special Christmas ornament to mark Stella's first Christmas. There are no takers. Literally....none. There are cheap ornaments, wooden ornaments, ceramic, plastic, I even saw ones that were made from plastic spoons today but I can't find a quality "Baby's 1st Christmas" ornament anywhere. And in the department stores...don't even get me started. The only chain store that I have seen any ornaments in is Target. Cute and trendy but not what I am looking for this year. What happened to the beautiful, quality ornaments that used to so much be a part of Christmas? Since when did ornaments become a thing of Christmas past. Argh.
