    Default I'm gonna be an aunt! :D

    My brothers girlfriend is about 6 months pregnant, and we finally found out today that it is going to be a girl!!! I'm so excited, I pretty much just wanted to tell everyone I know... lol. I cant wait to be an aunt! :D

    I do have a question though... What are non practical gifts for my brothers GF that she, or the baby would need, that most people wouldnt think of? I've never had a baby, so I really have no idea... lol. Any ideas you guys have or is it pretty much just the normal stuff that people get at baby showers???

    Wahoo congratulations daniellelynn That's awesome news.

    About the gift.. is she going to have a gift registry? All the baby showers that I've attended, I usually get like clothes, toys, or a baby bag.

    Congrats daniellelynn!! I usually shop off the registries for baby showers. Although when I found out I was going to be an Aunt for the first time, I bought a piggy bank (although it wasn't actually a piggy) for my niece. Then after she was born I had it engraved with her name, birthday and weight. Just a thought.

    Congrats! I like tacuddy's idea. When my mom was pregnant with me, all of my uncle's and aunts bought me bonds. Paid for my first year at college.

    Yay congrats!! Being an aunt is so much fun! It's like practice for when it's your turn to have kids :)

    I like Sammy's idea of a savings bond or something similar, that way, when they're older it will be worth more. Something else neat, for the baby, would be a ring. She would always have it, and when it doesn't fit anymore it can be out on a chain and worn as a necklace. Or a baby bracelet or something like that. For your brother's girlfriend, you could get her something that she could share with her daughter when she gets old enough.

    Since she going to have a shower everyone going to get clothes that are in newborn size and toys.. I would get the the baby essential that she will use everyday.. All the stuff I recommend I dont think people going to get and this is the stuff I would want for a baby's shower back in the days.. Anywayz Make a basket out of it..

    - baby soap ( Cetaphil gentle Cleanser; my baby's dermatologist recommended this since it the most gentle for baby without all the additive.. my baby have eczema)
    - baby lotion ( Cetaphil Gentle cream' again my baby's dermatologist.. it might not smell as good as Huggies.. Actually there no smell to it at all)
    - Diaper rash Cream ( Desitin Diaper rash cream.. It will clear or help the rashes within the next diaper change..Depend on how bad the rashes are.. I couldnt live with out it.)
    - Box or boxes of diaper and wipes..
    - gift card for the mom not the baby... you have to remember about the mom too.. Baby shower is jsut not for baby.. it about the mom too..
    - clothes but bigger size like 6 month, 9 months, or 12 months.. since no one going to think about getting bigger sizes, but you have to remember what season that baby age going to wear that.. you dont want to get a dress when she migh be 1 years when it in the middle of winter..

    BTW congrad on being an aunt... you get to spoil her all you want..

    Yay congrats...I love baby showers..but i always go overboard...Last one i went to was 2 months ago...well I had two...One person I bought bathtub and filled it with baby body wash, shampoo, butt paste, a towel and washcloth set, a "to go" set and onsies and teethers...The other person I am closer to so I got her Diapers, Wipes, Teething Tablets, Onsies, a Baby Keepsake Box, Baby Hangers, medicine....I always put things I've used like the teething tablets, teethers, onsies, hangers, tylenol, motrin, gas drops, towels and Dreft ..I usually try to stick to a theme too..

I kinda wanna wait to buy clothes until I know how big shes going to be... and I'm going to go with the bracelet idea and have one engraved for her.... The end of July cant come soon enough!!! :D

    I think the piggy bank idea is so cute! Of course it is great to get them practical things like you said before, but I would get them something fun like juicy paci's or some Gucci shoes or something special! Of course, that can get pricy though and I haven't had to buy for any baby showers yet so....
