Baby Shower and Thank You Cards

Last weekend was a blast; we had the baby shower and family came in town to help us celebrate. We were so grateful to have our family and friends come together for the special occasion. We’re also grateful for the generosity of everyone and their gifts. It lifts a bit of the burden to have some of the baby gear bought for us.

Besides a few minor things, I believe we have the essentials with the exception of the car seat. We’ll pick that up in a couple of weeks. This weekend will be more laid back. We’re now trying to get our thank you cards done and sent out. It’s not too bad – we just focus on doing 10 each sit down. We hope to be finished by the end of this week.

How about you? What was the favorite part of your baby’s shower?

  1. We have the exact same pack n play (also given to us)…When he was like 2 or 3 months old we’d put him in that and he’d literally have a babbling convo with “bear friends” on the mobile

  2. I like your strategy of doing 10 cards per sit-down … it shows how incremental progress can really add up!

  3. Baby showers are awesome, getting all that stuff as gifts saves you so much money! We got our stroller/car seat system for our first kid’s baby shower and are still using the stroller on the second.
