She plays a perplexed new parent on the hit CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother. But in real life, Alyson Hannigan gets plenty of practice (and help from her husband) with daughters Satyana, 4, and Keeva, 1. We caught up with the down-to-earth actress to find out how the family marked Keeva's first birthday.
It was older sister Sati's idea to go to Disneyland for Keeva's first birthday. Such fun!
For one of Keeva's birthday gifts, the family picked up this Melissa & Doug Triple-Layer Party Cake at F.A.O Schwarz.
Keeva's favorite bedtime book is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle available at BN.com
Hannigan's Baby-Soothing Secrets
Hannigan feared sibling rivalry when Keeva was born. "I worried for nothing because Sati just adores Keeva and she is the most incredible big sister."
"When my kids don't feel well, I resort to anything: puppet shows, silly songs. I just turn into a "walking circus".
"Keeva's got her little blanky that she likes to snuggle her face in. I put that on my chest and hold her to that, and she just hugs it and nuzzles her face into the blanket on my neck. It's lovely."
Hannigan always travels with a bottle of Tylenol to ease Keeva's teething discomfort. She recently teamed up with Tylenol to launch the Smiling It Forward campaign. Go to SmileItForward.com and upload pics of your kids. For every photo that parents send in, a dollar goes to the Children's Health Fund.
