My sister is currently expecting her first child and I couldn’t be happier! Angeline recently turned 17 and I have enjoyed watching her grow and change since the day she was born. That being said, I’m excited for all the joy that comes with a new baby such as new baby smell, those tiny fingers gripping onto your hand, the first smile, and baby coos. And the best part? I don’t personally have to deal with the late night feedings or constant crying. I get to be the fun Aunt that spoils the new baby with love, clothes, and toys. With all the excitement, I’ve been scouring the internet for gifts suitable for amazing baby showers or those that would be perfect for Holiday gifts for the expectant Mother. All items below are available on Amazon and most are eligible for free Amazon Prime shipping.
