 September 2007 mommies - Birthday Exchange

Hi mommies!

I just wanted to copy over a message from our FB group for those of you that haven't seen it, or are not on FB:

Can you believe our LO's are about to turn 1 yr. old?? I've started to plan Malachi's birthday already, and it got me thinking about a little idea.....

Seeing as I feel like I've gotten to know so many of you over the last year, and your babies too, I really want to celebrate the birthdays of our LO's as another of the important milestones we've shared all year.

Of course, it's not financially feasible or in my hectic life, practical, to send all your babies gifts, even though I'd love to, but I thought maybe we could do a mini first b'day gift exchange to mark the occasion? We could set a limit on dollar value, if you all are comfortable with that, but I thought it would be so fun to send a b'day gift to another Sept. baby in the mail!

Whoever wants to participate can, and I won't be the least bit offended if no one else is up for this.

If you would like to do this, just reply to this post by August 15th, and I'll organize the exchange. You can reply with the name and birthday of your LO, and your mailing address (or message me privately if you would like).

Also, if anyone is interested I thought you could send me a photo of your LO as a newborn and on their first b'day as well, and I'll have my talented DH do a now and then collage of all the Sept babies.....

Let me know what you think!

Hi Mamas!

Ok, glad you guys are up for this....

Pics can be sent to sharmillajade@gmail.com. Because of the spread of the birthdays and the fact that I'll be giving birth oh sometime around the end of Sept. my guess is that the collages won't be done till Oct/Nov sometime. That should give everyone enough time to send me a 1st. b'day pic.

What do you ladies suggest as limits for the exchange, or would you like to forgo limits and just purchase whatever?

Some ranges could include:
$15-$20
$20-$30
$30+

I want this to be comfortable for everyone, so please let me know what you all prefer. Also, when you pm/email me your info, please let me know what clothing size your LO is wearing or needs so that I can pass the info along to your birthday "elf".

If there's anything else I'm missing please feel free to suggest...

Thanks!

Bumping up as a reminder to get your info sent to me ASAP!

I haven't heard anything about limits, so I'm going to suggest $20 and let you ladies figure it out for yourselves. Please feel free to adjust this amount according to your financial situation/desire/shipping costs/etc. The point is the thought... not the gift!

Bumping up again.

Last week to sign up ladies! Let me know soon if you're still interested in participating. I have most of you matched up already, but I'm still waiting for everyone's info so I can get the list completed.
