I am pregnant with my second child, a boy. I have a daughter who is 4.5 and is from a previous relationship. This is our (DH and I) first baby together. I kept everything big from DD ie, furniture. The only things we do need are clothes as my first was a girl and this one is a boy. The thing is I really want a shower, not for gifts, but for the celebration of this child. DH's parents havent bought anything for their future grandchild and aren't planning a shower. I just figured they'd want some sort of celebration for their first (well first biological grandchild, as they treat dd wonderfully) grandchild. Is it strange to feel this way? My mom even asked me if DH's family were going to have a shower, and was a little shocked when I said no. I would understand to not have one if this child was a girl, but its not and there is a fairly decent age gap between dd and this baby. Again I really don't want it for the gifts as I haven't even registered or anything I just want to celebrate the baby. Any input?

Huge thanks to *Kiliki* for the FANTABULOUS new siggy!!

I have to admit too, I'm suprised his family hasn't said anything about having one!

I would say maybe have your mom plan a "sprinkle" instead of a shower and invite his family? Typically sprinkles are for later kids who are a different gender or there's a large age gap...or just for fun. I have them for everyone who's having a baby because I think every baby should be celebrated.

At sprinkles you get stuff like clothes, not the big presents.

I'm a little surprised too! Oh, I have never heard of a "sprinkle". That's a good idea!
