Is This Weird? How to Handle This? Any Adopting/adopted Moms Out There.

My sister in law called me today and asked if I thought it would be weird to throw her a baby shower when she was not expecting. She has been trying fertility treatments for a long time and I guess she has just given up and they are going to try adoption. She said that it was recommended to her to have a baby shower asap so she would have all she needed before the homestudy so she is more likely to be approved. I am all for giving her a shower but it does seem weird to me to have a shower before she is even approved... what if they are not...

Gift Ideas for the New Baby to Give Its Big Brother at the Hospital...

Hello ladies, I am expecting my second child in about 8 weeks and everyone keeps telling me that the new baby needs to have a gift for its Big Brother at the hospital....any suggestions?

Ways to Store Large Baby Items

Ok Moms. I am a very organized person, so maybe I am overthinking this. But I wanted to know if you have any good ideas on how to store the big baby items (swing, car seat, bouncy seats, exersaucer, etc) so they don't get dirty, dusty and ruined by the time you want to use them for the next baby a few years down the road. Unfortunatly I don't have a lot of storage in the house, so they will be stored in the garage. Please let me know what has worked for you. Thanks.

How Do I Prepare My 19 Month Old Daughter for a New Baby?

I have a beautiful 19 month old daughter, Autumn, and I am due to have another baby at the end of next month. I am more worried about how she is going to react about the new baby then anything else. We love her so much and we don't want her to feel left out in anyway. A few months ago she became very interested in baby dolls so both my husband play with the baby dolls with her and she is very compassionate with them. For those of you who have been through this what worked for you? How did you handle the situation? Is there anything...
