I had two wonderful baby showers; one hosted by seven (!) of my closet friends and one hosted by your dad’s cousin. We received almost all of the items we registered for and more toys, clothes, blankets and other goodies than we could ever possibly use. Everyone has been so generous at welcoming your arrival.
What blows my mind is that the gifts keep coming! Here we are almost four months later and we are still being showered. I’m so surprised every time the UPS man knocks on our door. Just last week we got three packages in one day…adorable onesies from family friends, a darling personalized bench from your dad’s college friends and three surfer t-shirts from one of mine.
I feel like a big jerk and wish I had consulted my Emily Post etiquette guide earlier because I thought showering the baby stopped at the showers. I didn’t know that you sent a card and/or another gift after the baby arrived. In particular, I thought if you attended the shower, you were done. I feel badly about this and vow to acknowledge baby’s arrivals from now on in a bigger way.
By the way, if you are reading and have yet to receive a thank you card, we appreciate your gift and I’m sorry, you will receive a formal thank you in the mail…eventually.
What a lucky baby you are!
The best is yet to be.
