And it's not my or difficult child's baby!! (TG!) My young neighbors just had their first baby (boy) this weekend and brought it home today. They have lived there a year and I''ve never seen any friends over. They have had a few family members over but none with any kids so I figured they were about as green as I was when I had difficult child. I didn't have much money so I put together a gift bag (designed with a puppy dog and a snail ). I just got a pack of side-snap T-shirts, a pack of 2 pacifiers that are shaped like the newborn's mouth, a pair of warm, soft booties, and a plaque for them to do the first hand and foot prints. I usually try to get expectant and new parents a book from the "What to Expect..." series but I wouldn't have been able to afford the other stuff and didn't know if they already had it so I just recommended it in the card. It was so much fun! I was almost in tears though reading those cards about little boys being born and growing up thinking about where difficult child is now. At least they are perfect and innocent and precious when they are babies! The father answered the door with baby in hand - I had seen the light from the tv in the window so knew it was a fairly safe time. The baby is 8lb 11 oz and has huge feet! I don't think those booties will fit. LOL! But he was fussing and didn't have a pacifier in his nouth so maybe they can use those.
