When it comes to Christmas, it looks like Taran Killam and Cobie Smuldersdaughter has a short list.

“She enjoys the packaging at this point, [so we’ll] probably just [give her] rolls of wrapping paper,” joked Saturday Night Live‘s Killam of Shaelyn Cado, 18 months.

Shaelyn’s parents do have a particular gift in mind — Killam, 28, says he and his fiancée are considering purchasing a rocking horse.

“She really likes this old Disney cartoon called Every Cowboy Needs a Horse,” he explained to PEOPLE Monday at the launch party for Saturday Night Live – The Game.

In the meantime, the comedian enjoys witnessing Shaelyn’s latest milestones, including words — even if she calls How I Met Your Mother star Smulders by name first!

“‘Mama’ [came first], and rightfully so! Cobie does most of the work so she earned that,” he notes.

We don’t hear about Shaelyn often, so yay! I’d love to see a picture of her, though. We never have!

My daughter is the same way, she’d rather play with the box and the paper than the actual toy.

I’ve really liked what we’ve seen so far of Taran on SNL. He’s a funny guy. Interesting name their daughter has.

I *adore* How I Met Your Mother, so it is lovely to have an update on Shaelyn! I wonder if her and Satyana have playdates on set? At Shaelyn’s age they don’t really care about the present – it’s boxes, wrapping paper and bubble wrap all the way, lol. Cobie is fantastic on HIMYM (really the entire cast is fabulous), it was great to see the return of ‘Robin Sparkles’ last night 😀
