Maggie’s Christmas and Birthday Haul

I’ve had a few people ask what gifts Maggie got over the holidays and her birthday and what she has really enjoyed so far, so I thought I would share! I also don’t strictly buy “neutral” toys for her (I talked about this on stories recently) – some stuff I get is neutral coloured, but…
