Giveaways! Growing and Giving

Flybaby will turn one year old in just a couple of weeks! One! Whole! Year!

To celebrate, he wants to give you, teh internets, gifts. That's right, it's his birthday, but he wants you to have the presents!

Starting two weeks from today, Flybaby will have one giveaway every day the week of his birthday. He wanted to offer things that he loves. Some of the prizes are clothes in his size (but are not regifted!) just because he likes to play with people his own size. Here's what he's offering:

Monday, Sept. 3: Boy's Gymboree outfit!

Volcano T-shirt and matching bright orange shorts in size 12-18 months. You won't be able to lose your kid in a crowd if he has these shorts on!

A second prize for the day will be a $5 gift card for Auntie Anne's pretzels. When JP and I need to get our soft pretzel fix, Flybaby likes tiny little bites that we break off and give to him.

Tuesday, Sept. 4: Today's for the girls!

The softest white hoody sweater embroidered with sweet animals in size 18-24, along with patterned white tights and white anklet socks in size 12-24.

A second prize will be the new Disney Princess Enchanted Tales: Follow Your Dreams DVD, which comes out today! Watch a sneak peek here. The DVD has new stories about Sleeping Beauty (Aurora) and Jasmine, along with games and activities. There's also a music video of Belle. This is a must-have for those little girls who are princess-crazed!

Wednesday, Sept. 5: Rattlesnake gift set!

Fun rattlesnake clothes for your outdoorsy boy in size 12-18 months. Romper and T-shirt both feature rattlesnakes and are different shades of green.

A second prize for today will be the new Disney Mickey Mouse Clubhouse DVD Mickey's Treat. You can watch a clip here. Mickey and friends go to a Halloween party, and the DVD bonus features include stencils, a "Spooky Clubhouse" cookbook and A Little Einsteins Halloween.

Thursday, Sept. 6: $15 iTunes gift card! Flybaby loves music. He even has his own playlists on my iPod.

A second prize is a gift book called Meditations on the Purpose-Driven Life. Fly loves looking at books now, turning the pages to see pictures. This book has beautiful pictures and inspirational sayings. It's a pretty pick-me-up!

Friday, Sept. 7 (Flybaby's birthday): $25 Gap gift card! Flybaby likes Baby Gap. You can use this in the regular Gap store, too, though, wink wink.

I may add additional giveaways before the actual contest starts -- if so, I'll update this post.

To enter, here's all you have to do -- if you enter blog contests, you already know the drill.

1. Write a post about the Growing and Giving contest including the link to this post.
2. Then come back here and sign the linky with the link to your post about the contest (not just the link to your blog home page), and
3. Leave a comment to say which days' giveaways you want to be entered for.

If you don't have a blog, just do steps 2 and 3 and leave your e-mail address in the comment.

And if you want to put this cute button of Flybaby on your site, feel free to snag it!

The Growing and Giving contest is open to the United States and Canada only.

Good luck!

A sweet and philanthropic way to start off life. I love it! I have a friend who has charity bday parties for her kids. She has adopted animals at the zoo,grown her hair all year long and cut it on her birthday to donate to Locks of Love, cleaned local parks with friends... All of the party guests contribute to that year's charity instead of giving the bday girls gifts.
I wish I had been such a clever Mom to endorse "loving your neighbor" in my girls; turn their birthdays upside down, and help them truly appreciate being alive!

Happy early birthday to Flybaby! Him and Little Lady are very close in age!

Thanks for your comment on "Confessions of an Extended Breastfeeder". I feel exactly the same way and also struggled so much in the beginning. It's great to know others are in the same boat. Thanks also for the comment on "And the Cat came back"...:o) Glad to hear your cats are not possessed!

Great contest Idea! I'm planning to have one on a smaller scale over at "Ode to Umbrella Moments" for Little Lady's birthday as well. I wrote a post and linked here...Please enter me for all days except Thursday. I have quite a few pregnant friends right now!

Hey, where did my comment go?! Oh, dear! Sorry Flybaby, my birthday wishes to you seem to have vanished into the great internet. :(

Still - belated Happy Birthday! Hope you had tons of fun and colorful balloons and all that your heart desires.

And congrats to the lucky winners so far. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the Disney Mickey Mouse Clubhouse DVD Mickey's Treat and the Gap Card! I heart Gap as well... I mean, Kiddo does! ;-)

Have a great life, little one. There's so much for you do do, learn and experience - I quite envy you!
