Is it strange that I got my baby a pumpkin?

My son isn't born yet, he's not due until next month, but today at the pumpkin patch I found a little one and got it for him. I'm going to decorate it and everything. My MIL teased me about it (not unkindly though) and it made me think "Maybe I AM being silly". Do you guys think I'm silly?

  • I believe you are a mother from the conception of your child. You are in love and want to express it. It's cute that you are so excited! We know our babies well before they are born these days. I want to buy my soon to be neice an ornament that says "first christmas". I won't because she isn't do until February but I know what you are feeling. It's sweet. Have fun and don't forget a pic for the baby book!

  • Not at all! I think it's really cute, actually. I'm pregnant and I got my unborn child a pumpkin (my daughters actually picked it out for the baby, haha). I think it's a cute idea though that symbolizes another member being added to the family.
    Congratulations on the pregnancy, by the way :-)

  • I wanted to get a baby Xmas tree. I was due in Feb. My mil nixed the idea. I was so upset. When you are pregnant you get all these feelings. Actually now that I think about it, I acted childish at times. But afterwards, it was work and no sleep.
