The next boomer generation...!

The next boomer generation...

I guess it wasn’t just the celebrities having all those babies (with their interesting baby names)…it’s been lots of people! It also explains all the baby shower invitations! We all know about the baby boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964, give or take a couple years) who reached their peak numbers in 1957. Well, in 2006, we reached about 4 million, but  in 2007, we topped over 4.3 million births (surpassing 1957’s birth rate) — the highest ever in our nation’s history! That’s a lot of shopping for baby clothes…not to mention diaper changes. We’re having our own boomlet here at le•top blog, so we seem to still be trending toward a baby boom.

It was a wonderful sight to behold! Even the sign-in guest sheets were scrapbook pages in “The Wizard of Oz” theme.

My sisters-in-law (I have 4 of them!) are throwing me a baby shower at the end of the month. And because of the holiday season, I haven’t had a chance to register for baby gifts. So on January 2, one of my sisters-in-law, Christine, urged me to register because she will be mailing the shower invitations soon, and she wants to make sure all invitation information is correct. (I love this about her! She’s just like me… a perfectionist!) So on January 3, when I miraculously found time between family functions (and Christine was skiing the day away!), I made it to the baby stores and got registered!

With my first pregnancy, my husband and I registered for an exorbitant amount of baby gear. The experience was overwhelming! We didn’t know what we would need, what we should have, what the best products are. (more…)
