General chatter - Way OT but... I have a new cousin!

My cousin just had a baby girl! On her older daughter's 10th birthday - what a great birthday present!

This puts us neck and neck at four children each. Our grandmother now has 11 great-grandchildren - soon to be 12!

We're all excited beyond belief and itching to make the drive to the Great North to see the new addition (and drop off all the newborn gear hand-me-downs from my son).

Any suggestions on gifts?

I only have one, so there are no hand-me-downs (but boy I'd sure love some!)

The best thing someone did for me was make casseroles to freeze. I really really appreciated it. Medela makes these steam bags that you can put bottles and breast pump items in and place them in the microwave for a bit and then the items are sanitized. It was SO great for traveling (especially for the holidays!) when I just didn't have the place or time to clean bottles. Those were wonderful to have.

Oh, and Happy Birthday x 2!
