Now that I am well into the 3rd Trimester, it is getting very real! Only about 9 weeks left until the little one gets here. I am trying to soak up as much information and watch as many Youtube videos as possible to prep myself for the big day. A few of my friends are also expecting and as you know, baby shower gifts are the best!
Most of the time, I will stick to the registry but for some of my friends, I wanted to get them something that they would actually use and remember. With so many digital apps and photos, there is definitely a bit of a ‘lost art’ when it comes to it written items.
“How few hours of sleep did you get the first week after your baby came home? Was your baby’s first Christmas a wrapping paper and sugar high–filled delight, or a toppled-over-tree and broken-ornament nightmare? The first 12 months of a baby’s life are precious and life-affirming—if you manage to remember them through the sleep deprivation, anxiety, and hours of advice everyone you’ve ever met wants to give you.”
Thankfully, HOORAY NEW BABY! (Rock Point Publishers / September 11, 2018 / US $24.99) is here to help you record the true story of your baby’s important first year, so memories are never fuzzy.
