We are so grateful to friends and family who have come by to meet Mae, bringing food, wine and open arms to hold her. So many of them also brought a small gift for Theo which was incredibly sweet. Smartly, knowing our small space doesn't allow for many toys, he was often gifted a book. Above are a few of the new books he received to ease the change of having a baby sister and having to share the spotlight.
We also gave him a gift from baby Mae when we came from the hospital... the classic hairdresser playdough set (ugh the mess that toy makes! but he loves it). I get the feeling we will have to deal with a bit of entitlement for a bit as with each visitor, he asks... "did you bring a present?". But we are so grateful for thoughtful friends who take the time to recognize and celebrate Theo as a big brother.
