I made up my own, made sure everyone put their name on them, collected them all, and awarded a prize for the person who guessed the closest birth date and a prize for the person who guessed the closest birth weight. Of course, they had to wait a couple of months, but the anticipation was a lot of fun.
Since there was a lot of close family and friends at my daughter's baby shower, I bought a lovely journal book and asked everyone to write a personal message to the little one who was going to be a new member of the family and world. That journal is such a treasure because there are so many personal sentiments and stories that were shared. I can't wait for my granddaughter to be old enough to read it for herself. â™¥
