  • No, not at all! Better to send them now than not at all.

  • Wait...did you have your baby May 25th of last year, or did you mean March 25th of this year? I don't think it's too late, just maybe try to put a little extra thought into your thank you's by using some specifics: Baby loves to snuggle with her blankie, the bottles are working out great, etc.

  • It is never too late for Thank you--especially as you had the baby fairly soon after your shower. I agree with the suggestion to make them announcements/thank yous all in one. Maybe even include a picture of baby? Congrats!!

  • I don't think it's too late, but I would include a picture of the new baby with the thank you's :)

  • May of this year? Or has it been almost a year already?

    If you just had the baby, I"d recommending printing a few sheets of wallet sized (or larger) pics of the new baby and send those out with a quick thank you scribbled on the back.

  • It's spelled u-n-g-r-a-t-e-f-u-l and no, you wouldn't seem that at all. I never send out thankyou's...I tell them straight from my heart before they leave and I give them a departing gift. Good enough for me!
