I can’t believe it was nearly two years ago that the first Royal baby was born. I’m just as excited as I was then for Kate’s second baby. Especially as it’s a baby girl! It’s about time the Royal family added a little femininity. This time around I caught the whole thing on Periscope, it was really fun to be part of such an important moment. The second royal baby was born on Saturday May 2nd, weighing 8lb 3oz, so a little smaller then her older brother. Re-living the experience reminded me of this post, which is just as pertinent now.
The world has been buzzing for months about the Royal Baby and I’m no exception! Finally a little prince was born on July 22, 2013 at 4:24 pm London time. He weighed in at 8 lbs. 6 oz. (where did Kate Middleton hide him?) and he and his mum (!) are said to be doing well. New dad Prince William said, “We couldn’t be happier.” It’s been said he bought a little teddy bear for the next in line to the crown.
There are always the old standbys of a day at the spa or gift certificates to local take-out restaurants. Sure, what new mom wouldn’t love a day to relax and get a mani/pedi. But who wants to give an ordinary gift? You want your gift to be one she’ll really love and remember.
A Day of House Cleaning
The actual birthday box is full of a lot of big moments for new parents, and it can be easy to lose track of things that are unrelated to the newborn. Collect some newspaper clippings, photos, notes, and any other mementos from that day. Years from now, parents will love to be able to look back and remember the day that it all began.
