I don't know of anyone who would throw me a shower, so I guess I'm not having one with this kiddo.
Are you having a shower or other type of celebration for this baby? What number is this for you?
i think since your kids are so far apart someone may want to throw you a shower. I know with my sisters dd my family went way overboard, i couldn't believe how much they spent on her. My family is big on baby showers, my one aunt had 5 kids and got a shower each and everytime, but I don't really care to get tons of gifts, I would appreciate the things i really need like bibs and wash clothes, and a high chair. Now if I have another ds or even a dd, i am definitely doing a registry this time. My sister did it last time and so many people bought off of it, i really don't want to be stuck with a whole bunch of stuff i don't need. My ds will be going on 5, but i have kept quite a bit of his stuff and only recently began getting rid of some well worn bigger handmedowns. But regardless, i really don't want 100 outfits again, being it a girl or boy, but i know that's what i will get a lot of. My cousin is due 3 weeks after me, so we may end up having a shower together, but it depends b/c she just moved 8 hours away, so i am not sure about that, but yeah we'll be having a shower i'm pretty sure.
