We are slowly getting ready for baby around here. Six more weeks to go. I remember thinking that when I got to six weeks that we would officially be getting close to meeting our little girl. Here we are! Today I'm talking about wishes for once the baby comes and keeping your favorite people in the loop.
When we had Matilda - I'm going to be honest - it was overwhelming. Although people meant so well, I feel like not a day went by for weeks without visitors and often visitors tend to linger. Being the wanna be hostess that I am, I spent way too much time trying to keep the house clean and to entertain visitors. This article really resonated with me. I'm trying to keep Gloria's suggestions in mind for when my loved ones have babies. It's so understandable to be overexcited and to perhaps overstay your welcome (guilty!).
A few things that I want to do differently this time...
My mom told me that a friend of hers put "We look so forward to seeing you a couple of weeks after the baby is born." at the end of all of her thank you cards. Brilliant, no?
So, that's what I've got. I would love to hear your suggestions as well. Did you put a sign on the door to politely let people know you were resting? How did you spread the word about how much space you needed? It's so tricky because I certainly would be sad if we didn't hear from anyone, I just want a little breather and recovery time. I also think the idea of a "Sip 'n' See" is pretty brilliant. Did you have one?
