Task list

If I don't link to you and you would like me to do so, please email me. It's nothing personal. I'm just not very good at keeping up with all the blogs. Emailing me will assist in this whole keeping up with the blogs thing.

Also, if there's anything you'd like me to post about, let me know either in the comments or by email. The fetus is eating my brain and making me just a little (ha!) stupid, so any assistance would be appreciated.

Oh, and I'm open to any comments about baby shower etiquette that someone might wish to make. Mine is coming up soon, and I'm having a particularly hard time figuring out who to invite. It's just so presumptuous to invite someone to a party which has the express purpose of providing us with gifts.

um, why should you be worrying about your shower invite list. your closest girlfriend should be the hostess and she should know who closest to you would like to share your joy. you don't have to worry your pretty head about any of it!

Ha! You don't get the gifts, Embry does. ;oD

But yeah, someone should be throwing it for you. Make them keep the weird games to a minimum though.

Someone *is* throwing it for us, and we've been asked for a guest list.

You could always try to refocus the shower to be more of a celebration of you two and the baby-to-be and less about presents. I'd guess though that people you invite won't find it presumptuous. As in I'm sure they know you aren't in it just for the gifts ;)

Speaking of gifts, I have one for you, but wasn't sure when the proper time to send it is, exactly. Should I wait until Ebry is born? Is it bad luck to send it early? Should I send it around the time of your shower? Questions abound.

I wanna be on your link list! :)

As for the shower, invite those that you would like to hang out with. Make it a potluck.

It's totally up to you, Grace. We've already received some gifts but are in no particular rush to get more.

To be clear, we're not planning the shower--we've just been asked for a guest list. Most folks are easy to figure out, but a few who wouldn't have otherwise been invited have expressed interest in attending a shower, should there be one. That kind of blurs the lines a little.
