Not long now...

A very recent photo of DsD2...38 weeks! 

She has now finished work. And of course the Baby Shower was two Sundays ago. 
I had planned other gifts for the new parents but when I discussed my plans with DH, he thought what I suggested was a bit odd/daft etc. But when I spoke to the young couple, telling them what I  planned, they were very agreeable!

I think those vouchers are a great idea Maria. I'm sure they will be greatly appreciated. When I had Mitchell, my SIL and BIL gave us 6 weeks of nappy wash (yes, I used clothe nappies!) which was wonderful.

what a good idea to help out the new \Mum I know she will really appreciate you helping with these chores. At least it is summer for you and washing will dry quickly unlike here where it seem to hang around on maidens for days and in the end I have to give in and put the heating on!

I had very little help when Daughter was a baby. So I know these gifts will be lifesavers.

How exciting ......what a fabulous idea the vouchers are... I'd love them....

Ooohh exciting time soon. I think your IOU gifts are very thoughtful and I'm sure will be most appreciated. Do they know if it's a boy or a girl? I bet you won't be able to help yourself and will be making some tiny little items soon. Xox

I wish someone had done that for me! Tell DH he has to think like a girl and it will sound very nice indeed!

Marilyn said...

Those vouchers are a brilliant idea!

That is a wonderful gift for a mama and papa-to-be and they don't even know how much they will appreciate those services until the baby comes and they have time for nothing else. You must be so excited!

Brilliant idea Maria. One can never have to much help when bubs arrives.
