If you’ve seen my About Me page or been keeping up with any of my more recent posts, you’ll know that my husband and I are expecting our first baby this March! We had a small baby shower this past weekend with just our family. And were so blessed and spoiled with so many fabulous gifts for our little peanut. But there was one gift that brought me to tears. It was so thoughtful and sweet that I was compelled to post about it. Now, the tears may be because of the hormones. And let’s face it, I cry at just about anything these days. But I was so overcome with excitement and gratitude that I just couldn’t hold back the water works.
My sister-in-law bought me a milestone blanket. You use it as a backdrop for photos of your baby’s monthly milestones for the first year. And I cried. It’s this adorable little mountain blanket and it comes with signs noting each month so you can take a picture and see how baby has grown over the year! Now we have a mountain/forest theme for our nursery, so the one that she gave us was beyond perfect. But when I did a little more research and told some friends, I found out there’s SO MANY CUTE ONES!
When I opened the gift, I imagined every month and every milestone. And I was overcome with optimism and thoughts of the unlimited possibilities the next year could bring. It’s such a simple gift, but it really did mean a lot to me.
Here’s a few of my favorites:
If you know someone who is expecting a baby, I really think this is the sweetest gift and it’s definitely something that will be remembered and used all the time! Amazon has some really great options, but you can find them just about anywhere! I urge you to give the gift of memories.
