Thoughts on second baby shower

Did you guys have one for your second baby? Matthew and I want to have one since its a girl this time and we are in need of diapers and clothes. My mom disagrees and thinks we are trying to use other people to get us stuff which is totally wrong and not true at all.

      I didn't have a shower with my son because I was not around any friends or family when I had him. With this one I don't think I am having one, at least no one has mentioned it and it's just not me to throw my own shower, although I have been thinking about it.
      I have known a lot of Moms who have had showers with all of their babies...some who have 4 or 5 kids. Some of them I have gone to all of their showers. I never even knew that is was a thing to not have a shower for each baby until I joined this site. To me, every baby is worth celebrating and if that includes a baby shower then I think that is great. If you want to have a shower to help celebrate this baby then I say go for it :-)

      I was talking to hubby earlier and he wants to have one after she is born so everyone can come meet her and celebrate her with us. We really just want to see our friends and family and spend time with them.

        If someone offers to throw one then I say go for it.

          That's awesome! for sure. We really want to celebrate her life. We are so excited and very happy to be welcoming her. I think I like Matthew's idea of having one after she is born. Like a meet and greet sort of thing.
