I really wanted to have a baby shower for this baby ( its my second and he's a boy, first was a girl), but unfortunately that's not going to happen. With DD I had a very small one with my three family members (5 years ago). This time I don't have any family and we just moved again a year ago ( we're military). So I don't have a lot of friends here, and none of them are going to throw a shower.
It just sucks, I've always wanted to have a fun shower with friends. I had really good friends at our last duty station and I know they would have thrown one and they would have been fun!! I would throw it myself but I know that's considered rude and tacky. So I'm going to have a mini baby shower cake made and make a nice dinner with just myself, DH and DD. That will be how we celebrate his arrival. I feel like he deserves some kind of celebration at the very least.
I know a lot of people don't care about showers but I believe every baby should be celebrated. We don't need gifts or anything, I already purchased most of what I need.
