Not my oven hehe but one of my best friends (who I was chief bridesmaid for back in September) is pregnant!
This has been a mega shock to the system for our whole group - this will be the first baby in our group so I don't think we're all quite prepared for how things are going to change!
You're probably wondering why I'm telling you about my friend, well, I need some help from you, if you can?
I'll hold my hands up-I am not a very child friendly person - I have never ever wanted to have any of my own, and still can't see a future with any of my own kids. Many people over the years have tried to talk me out of that, telling me once I have my own I'll think differently, and maybe people do, but I (at this present moment in time) don't want to find out. I totally agree with the whole 'never say never' because I am only 24 at the moment and I MAY change my mind in years to come, but for me right now, I can't see that happening.
So here's my dilemma - I love my friend and therefore will be madly in love with her little bambino I'm sure and I want to spoil it rotten. She is due in August and I plan to pick up a few little nick nacks every month on pay day and create a hamper for both mummy and baby!
I have bought a lovely wicker basket, and a few little bits (a pack of sleep suits, a blankets and winnie the pooh bibs) but what would you put in the hamper - for both mummy and baby? If you're a recent mummy, what did you absolutely miss when pregnant? And what would you have liked for your baby?
Any help would be much appreciated!
