DD just turned one...got all 4 molars at once at 11 months!: :
I really glad that's over. (for now)
This is probably a stupid suggestion, but as a 1st time Mom....I've learned SO much from the smallest things.
I bought a relatively cheap set of toy shelves at Target. (Mine were plain...not Dora!)
I put her various toys in these bins, so she can see and choose what interests her. Sometimes, I empty them out and put water, rocks, pieces of fabric in.
