I am so fortune to have so many wonderful friends and family who love me and were excited for the little pickle to be born. At the baby shower, I got just about everything we possibly needed (and things I didn’t know I was going to need!) and more. Adorable clothes, fun toys, and must haves like the stroller and car seats were all ready to go before baby arrived. I was set!
The best gift, though, that I would recommend to anyone is one that wasn’t on a registry or one I even gave much thought to at all. Pre-made meals. Yes, that’s right — FOOD! Nana Pickles was on the ball and knew I would have my hands full with feeding the little guy and changing his diapers (how many could one person go through in one day anyway?!) that I wouldn’t be up for making meals when I got home from the hospital. Thank goodness for the wisdom of Nana. Honestly, those meals saved me those first few nights home. I didn’t have to think about what I was going to have to eat (I was lucky to even shower), I just opened the fridge and pulled out the next meal and I was happily noshing.
So, if you are about to have a little one or know someone who is about to have one of their own, trust me, food is the way to go! Casseroles, pasta dishes, soups and stews, breads and fruits are all great choices.
Here are a couple ideas to get you started:
Even having just one meal prepared for the day you come home with baby is a life saver. Trust me…life saver!
