Another (PA) Baby Shower

We did a virtual baby shower for Geebs last winter before his daughter was born. It's PA's turn now, and we have a lot of new members who appreciate PA's friendly advice and personality.

Everybody, please join in and post some new-mom advice or wisdom you want to share with baby PA to be.

p.s. I nominate mish to decorate the table.

I am sure I will have some more advice to share later, but to start with, I have some advice for your husband PAB. A friend of mine gave me this advice before Rachel was born and it was very helpful.

Here it is...When putting on the diapers, the animals go in the front

from me, a baby swing with a years' supply of batteries for it,
a copy of "What to expect the first year" (must-have reading!)
and, a large set of classical CDs: you can never start too early!

It's a celebration! A baby shower is given for an expectant mother. =) Gifts are given to the baby and the Mom. Little games are played. Food and beverages are served. It used to be pretty much a ladies-only thing, but that's changed a bit over the years.
