Only change I'd make is on #1-
the New Mom is way too busy at first to invite you over. I find it perfectly fine for someone to call and ask when they can visit.
#6 is a big one in my mind. WAIT to be asked if you want to hold the baby. Don't try to be a baby hog, it's a quick way to make a new mom mad. And give the baby back when mom and dad say they want the baby back!
With Grace, she was the only one we had visitors outside of family. Even then it was pastor and he stayed long enough to pray with us, give congrats, then left (gave us a rose in vase which went to MIL because I'm allergic). But sure wish I could show the ones to the MIL about 'assuming role as host'..... It was nice when I went to my mom's after three months of being away because she wouldn't let me do much and baby was two months old.
