A friend of mine has just announced that she and her husband are expecting their first baby! This is always great news, as it's an excuse to get the knitting needles out and go shopping for frilly socks, stuffed animals and cute, little baby clothes.
Somehow, the news of a new baby always takes me back to the good old days when my babies were actually babies. At that time there were hardly any Internet stores around, so we trolled the brick and mortar ones looking for baby clothes, toys and furniture. These days there are many shopping websites available to choose from. I was just informed about a site which stocks several of the brand names like barefoot dreams, jellycat and appaman collections for babies and kids.
I'm off to look for some tiny treasures for an even tinier person. I don't know what he/she will look like yet, but I'm sure that a soft cuddly toy and some warm filly socks will a perfect present.
What's your favourite present to give to a newborn?
