This weekend I hosted a baby shower for my oldest sister who's expecting her second little one (my first God-child!) in just a few weeks.
The shower was planned last minute, but we still had about 20 people show up, including babies.
I was just so struck by the kindness of her friends (all of whom are young mothers themselves) to just drop everything going on in their homes to come celebrate the arrival of a new life into our world.
I don't have much experience with baby showers other than for my two sisters, but it always seems to me that all their friends are genuinely excited about any new life, even if it is "only the second one."
