Babies are life’s most precious miracles. They are the beautiful joy brought into a couple’s life. It’s a new beginning for the couple as they start on this new adventure of taking care of a little human being, you see the big smile on their faces, the happy tears in their eyes, and the love between the family grow much deeper by the minute.
When you look into babies eyes, they sparkle with joy and their smile is like a perfect Kodak moment, it’s a moment you don’t ever want to end. Its life’s little experiences that make it worthwhile.
Babies, Babies, Babies!!! There are so many words that describe a baby. They are cute, adorable, cuddly and oh so precious. Those are the first words that come to my mind when I think of those cute little bundles of joys!
For me, the year 2009 was a year booked for weddings to attend. Many of my friends were getting married; the help with preparations and decision making were a lot of fun.
This year is different than the previous. Many of those friends who got married previously are expecting a baby this year! So far this year I had three baby showers during the spring time, I still have another two baby showers left during the summer to attend, and who knows if there will be any more announced sometime soon, the year is not over yet.
As the time approaches closer to a baby shower, I try to think of something different and unique to give as a gift. I am a very sentimental individual and I like to give something that the child may keep for a longer time.
I would think of clothing, but a child usually receives many clothing and eventually will grow out of them.
I think of toys, the child will play with these toys and eventually stop playing after sometime.
So I came up with an idea of giving a child a poem. I wouldn’t give the child just a poem by itself; I would get it engraved in a keepsake.
If it’s a girl, I would go to the engraving store and engrave this poem into either a wooden or silver plated jewellery box. This little girl can use this jewellery box for when she gets older as well.
If it’s a boy, I would get it engraved into a nice silver plated picture frame. In this picture frame the parent can add a picture of the little boy.
I think its great keep sake the child may have for years to come. I received many compliments from other mothers who think it is a wonderful idea to add a poem as part of a gift. It is both different and unique at the same time.
As I am trying to finish writing up this blog, I am already thinking of putting my next gift together. The only problem is, my friend neither Amy nor her husband wants to find out the sex of their baby, they want it to be a surprise. Amy’s baby shower is only three weeks away, I have to think of an idea for a gift that can be given to either sex of the baby, but I must add a poem in there as well. Hmmmm……What will it be? stay tuned for my next blog as I will let you know what I finally came up with.
