BABY SHOWER GUIDE.
I sometimes get so self-focused on here I forget that just because I'm already married and my babies are not exactly babies anymore I can still talk about weddings and baby stuff. Especially since I still get invited to lots of showers. This is the South, y'all, we love a good reason to celebrate. With just family alone, I have a whole team of twenty-something cousins right now rocking away at the showers. It's so fun!
I rounded up some of the baby items I loved when my two were tiny. I love that these gifts are all practical but still fun and pretty! I tried something new with the collage below so I think you can actually click on the images to go directly to their source.
Freshly Picked Moccasins || aden + anais swaddling blankets || sophie the giraffe || Jellycat bunny || rubber floor tiles || Teether bead necklace || wearable blanket || convertible car seat || babyletto crib || infinity nursing scarf || mariner crib sheet || rope gift basket || bunny lovey soother blanket || st. jude wooden train || bunny jelly cat ballerina || bottle drying rack || Angel Dear lovey (a pair and a spare) || PLATED meal plan gift card || Aquafor || silver plated rattle
What do you think? Anything I left off that you love to give a mom-to-be or a new mom? My realistic list would be to just set the woman up on a diaper and wine delivery service. Or chip in with a group of friends to hire her a cleaning lady to come twice a week for a few weeks. I'm not even kidding. Those are fabulous gifts, especially for someone who already has all the baby gear.
Another suggestion I'd make it to think ahead and buy clothes in a larger size. No one can argue that newborn sized clothes aren't just so dang freaking itty bitty adorable [my weird wittle snuggle buggle voice just came out on that one, oh yes it did]. But honestly, it is so nice to after six months of watching all your pretty clothes get covered with spit up or poop, get to pull out something new and special from their shower.
