Gifts for future babies

So this is what I bought for my brother and sister in law.  I figured sending a small gift along with a nice card would suffice my never actually congratulating them (or talking to them at all).  The onesie has a cute little map of Berkeley (where we live) and the book is done in the style of good night moon, but is good night San Francisco.  I wrote some bunk about starting the spoiling early and we are excited to be an Aunt and Uncle.  I love the little onesie.  I loved it so much that I decided to go ahead and get one for our future little one.   I always said I wouldn't go so far as to buy clothes for a non-existent baby, but it made me feel happy to buy it.  I have been eyeing it in the shop window for ages, had planned to buy it when I got a BFP to show to the 'rents over skype to tell them.  How things change.    If I ever manage to get pregnant I'm just going to call them and tell them.  I don't think I'll have the patience to do cutesie.  My cute onesie is now tucked away in my closet with the lullabye cd I bought a few months back.  And the one for my future niece/nephew is on route via priority mail.

I had a whole big box of baby stuff prior to my BFP. Don't worry about it one bit! I love the book you bought them too.

Hope you can stay cool in this heat we are having. I know I am misrable.

As long as it makes you happy then no harm done.
I had stuff for my non existant baby, but after my miscarriages it was too painful so I gave it all away.
This journey is tough enough, we need to make it as easy on ourselves as possible!

That is so lovely. That was also a very strong thing to do.

That is a really sweet gift for the new baby. And buying something for you. . .why not. I'm mostly a book and magazine horder, but I have a cupboard dedicated to baby stuff I can't stand to look at.

I think that's a great way to say congrats to them. Yay for you too for buying a onesie for your future baby. I bought a little onesie (that I designed on cafepress) for our next little one. I felt kind of silly buying it, but it also made me happy, so I did it. I tucked it into a drawer, hopefully it won't collect too much dust.
