In our family, we usually get and give pretty big gifts for the first baby. Our thinking is that is when they are needed most and that things such as cribs, strollers and swings, will be reused for any subsequent babies that are born into the same family.
We, on the other hand, were a little bit different. We had our first two only a year apart, necessitating for a second crib and a double stroller. Our family gladly bought us these as baby gifts and helped us out when we needed it.
I am thankful to them and their generosity, as I don’t think it would have been as easy as it has been without them. We love our girls and we actually love that they are so close in age. We hope that they will be the best of friends and are glad that they have such a wonderful and loving family.
