I have a friend who is pregnant. She is due on St. Patrick’s Day! This is her second child, but I’d like to organize some kind of small baby shower for her (since we are both military wives and live really far away from our families). The problem is….I have no idea how to do this or when to do it!! I’m clueless, as I’ve only been to one baby shower as an adult (and that was several years ago…for a woman who was on her 6th child!!!).
This lady is a pretty special woman to me. And her husband will be deploying shortly after her baby is born, leaving her alone with a newborn and a 2-year old son. I don’t know many of her other female friends from the area, but I do know that my husband, her husband, and some other guys in there command and their SO’s are all a big group of close friends (we’re the type to adopt each other for Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc so that no one spends a holiday alone). I’d like to get the guys involved in a small party for her too, as we’re all close. But does anyone have any suggestions for a low-key baby shower that is co-ed? I don’t think she is registering anywhere. The rest of us don’t have kids yet, so we’re pretty excited to welcome this new addition into our mixed-up family of sorts!
Any advice is welcome! Food or snack ideas, games that guys can play too, gifts that a second-time mom might need if she isn’t registered (she’s having a second boy)… 🙂
