What is proper ethic for having a party to honor your second born? Do you have a baby shower? Do you create a registry? Those were the questions that I had when we got pregnant with our second child. Our second pregnancy was great because we found out that we were going to have another boy. Our son was going to be a big brother to his brother.
We did create a registry but it only had things that we really needed. It wasn’t much because I saved everything from my first pregnancy. Having another boy also limited to what we really needed. We asked our guests to bring diapers and wipes because the reality of it is that you use a lot of diapers and wipes the first year.
My husband and I decided to have a baby Sprinkle which just showed how much we love the second child. When you’re pregnant with the first, you get everything and then there’s nothing for the second. The baby Sprinkle was themed with ice cream and donuts. It was in the summer so it fit great. We had an ice cream bar with different kinds of ice cream as well as toppings. Everyone loved it.
We had plain blocks and asked our guests to create a block which our second son will use when he gets older. Our favors were mason jars filled with sugar cookie mix and sprinkles. I created labels with the ingredients and directions to make the cookies. That was a huge hit. I hope this inspires you to create your own baby Sprinkle for your second bundle of joy. We can’t forget the second baby that comes into our lives. Happy creating!
