Anyone have some great suggestions?

Another thought is something for when she is a little bigger - a keepsake type thing, like a piggy bank or a music box.
If you want to do a toy, unit blocks are the awesomest toy ever.
Age-appropriate musical toys are also great: Kitty Keyboard, musical stacker, etc.

Beyond books, mommys fave prezzie was the Green Toys "First Blocks" set, which look like giant legos, but are made of recycled plastic. We also got Melissa & Doug 1yr puzzles (w the big knobs), and some that were a touch older (18 mos?), and the M&D alphabet blocks, which hes not quite ready for.

When people ask what to get for her bday, I'm tending towards winter-wear: jeans, courdoroys, little sweaters, socks, etc. We also need a snow suit, hat with velcro, mitts and boots--would these help your cousin?
I also second books--the ones where a baby can "pet" the animals' fur are DD's favourite. Also--boring but true--a gift certificate to anywhere one can buy diapers, wipes, detergent, creams, and so on--like a pharmacy or a health-food store. Those things really add up!
it's awesome, dd is pretty small but she gets on it all by herself and pushes, even though she has to ride "side saddle" to reach the floor with one foot. she uses it as a pushing toy, and she likes to send it careening back and forth across the living room. last night she just kept "crashing" into a chair over and over again. she also uses it as a step-stool to climb up on the coffee table but that's not a use i'm all that into.
i figure it's one thing that she'll be able to use for a long time.
