Is it just me, or are we in the middle of a baby boom? I feel like people are announcing pregnancies left and right! In fact, one of my co-workers just announced that baby number two is on the way. It's all so very exciting!
One of my best friends told me that she was expecting shortly after the new year. I really wanted to get a small gift for her and her husband. I have wanted to do this before for my other friends, but it's always been one of those things where I have the best of intentions, but fall short on execution. I was determined not to let my plans fall to the way side this time, though. I wasn't certain what to get them, so I reached out to my sister-in-law, and then my mom. My mom has a knack for thinking of cute gifts...I always ask her when I need help! I came up with three things, one for the baby, one for the mom-to-be, and the dad-to-be. I thought the gift turned out well, so I wanted to share, in case you too, are experiencing this surge in pregnancies/babies.
First, for the baby. Since they didn't know the gender yet, I decided to just get some white onesies. I thought those were a pretty safe present...useful, but not gender specific. Then, for the mama, I decided to go with something I remembered my mom getting my sister-in-law, Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter. I checked with my sister-in-law, to make sure that was indeed what she had gotten and that she did like it! Finally, for the soon-to-be dad, I picked up Jimmy Fallon's book, Your Baby's First Word Will Be DADA. My mom picked this up for one of my cousin's and reminded me of that when I asked her for suggestions. I thought it was kind of funny, and who doesn't like Jimmy Fallon?!
